Dear Esteemed Stakeholders,

As the airline flying to the most countries in the world, we build bridges between countries, continents and cultures in line with our mission. We create value for all those we touch and everywhere that we fly in accordance with our sustainability strategy. This strategy is structured around four focal points: people, the planet, development, and governance functions. We grow as we create value and we view sustainability as a journey, one that must be internalized at all levels of the Company. In this journey, we take the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations as our guide.
