Green Choice flights help travelers reduce their carbon footprint
LOS ANGELES, CA (October 24, 2022) – CheapAir.com, a boutique travel booking site, formally launches a new flight feature “Green Choice” today, allowing travelers to see and book the most fuel-efficient itinerary. This new flight option identifies the most fuel-efficient choices for each leg of a trip and is available for any itinerary, including one-way, roundtrip, and multi-city. The feature also tells travelers how much carbon dioxide is burned per person in an economy seat.
“CheapAir.com is committed to doing its part when it comes to sustainable travel,” said Jeff Klee, CEO of CheapAir.com. “To help offer practical solutions when it comes to reducing one’s carbon footprint while traveling, we are proud to provide the visibility of carbon emissions rates by flight. This information helps individuals make thoughtful travel decisions.”
A factor to consider when booking sustainable is nonstop flights and mixing-and-matching airlines. These flights will typically be the most fuel efficient and the greenest flights may require flying two different airlines. CheapAir.com can seamlessly combine any combination into one convenient itinerary that maximizes green travel choices, making it easy for travelers to make more responsible travel decisions.
For example, for 10 major US domestic flight routes greater than 1,000 miles, the best Green Choice flight on CheapAir.com averaged 48% lower emissions than the highest emitting logical itinerary for that same route.
