UNITED ARAB EMIRATES

ABU DHABI

More than a year after the beginning of the round the world tour, Solar Impulse returned to Abu Dhabi achieving the impossible.

As an Official Partner of Solar Impulse and Host Partner of the Mission Control Center in Monaco, Moët Hennessy accompanied Solar Impulse at every moment of its round-the-world tour.  After a 48-hour journey from Cairo in the single-passenger cockpit, Solar Impulse Pilot, Initiator and Chairman Bertrand Piccard was welcomed by André Borschberg, Solar Impulse Pilot, CEO and Co-Founder in Abu Dhabi. Thirteen years after their initial vision of travelling around the world powered only by the sun, their dream became a reality.  
 

Christophe Navarre, Chairman and CEO of Moët Hennessy, witnessed the arrival from the Mission Control Center in Monaco. In speaking with André Borschberg by telephone just after Bertrand’s arrival, he stated “Congratulations! You did it! This was a long journey and an important step for humanity. We are proud and we are humbled to be your partner.” He was joined by Serge Telle, French Minister of State of Monaco, and Raymond Clerc, Mission Director of Solar Impulse, to offer a Moët & Chandon toast to the entire team in recognition of their incredible work and the shared values of Solar Impulse and Moët Hennessy: a pioneering spirit and attention to the earth.
