As a key partner, United Airlines is proud of the results as well as the aviation industry’s commitment to reducing its impact on the environment and improving on current best practice.
Virgin Blue Airlines were joined with an internationally acclaimed scientist, conservationist, author and Chairman of Copenhagen Climate Council, Professor Tim Flannery, to honour the purchaser of the airline’s one millionth seat to have its carbon emissions offset since the launch of Virgin Blue’s Carbon Offset Program in 2007.
Green air travel seems near impossible to obtain. It is almost too good to be true- a plane that can run which produces no carbon emissions for our environment. And last year Boeing announced they has built such a plane- a plane that is so ‘green’ earth friendly that the engine releases only pure water [...]
British researchers have taken the plunge and attempted to find a way of cutting airline fuel bills (and the environment). They say they can cut fuel emissions by up to a fifth by placing hundreds of thousands of tiny holes in the surface of the planes wing.
The increasing amount of people using planes as a method of transportation is a terrifying thought for the environment. The more people that step on board a plane, the more C02 is produced and the more we pollute the air. There are cheap flights sold daily and cutting down the air travel will be difficult, [...]
