A REVOLUTION IN Sustainable aviation

EFFICIENT BY DESIGN

We aim to do more to cut waste and reduce avoidable CO2 aviation emissions than any air company has before. First, the right-sized aircraft we use today are significantly more efficient than equivalent jet aircraft. By optimizing operations using these efficient aircraft, we can dramatically reduce the typical carbon footprint for passengers.

Fossil fuels represent 40% of a typical airline’s base cost today. As with so many sustainable policies, we believe that doing the right thing is profitable for the customer, the planet and operations.

TEAMING UP TO ADVANCE THE INDUSTRY 

Achieving significant reductions in operator CO2 emissions can only be attained by cooperation between new partners. We are working with hybrid-electric manufacturer VoltAero to offer environmentally conscious options. Hybrid and electric aircraft will join the fleet in the near term (1-2 years) with a range of up to 800miles.
