CheapAir.com Goes Green with New Sustainable Flight Feature
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." Flying economy is also a simple way for travelers to reduce their carbon footprint as business and first class take up more space on an airplane, resulting in less efficient travel. For example, for 10 major US domestic flight routes less 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.
