JetBlue goes green

Travel Daily - - News -

JETBLUE has an­nounced it will off­set car­bon diox­ide emis­sions (CO2) from jet fuel for all its do­mes­tic flights start­ing from Jul, which it ex­pects will equate to seven to eight mil­lion met­ric tonnes of CO2 emis­sions per year.

To do so, the air­line will con­tinue to work with Car­bon­fund.org, as well as new part­ners EcoAct and South Pole.

The air­line will also use sus­tain­able avi­a­tion fuel on flights from San Francisco In­ter­na­tional Air­port start­ing mid-2020.

“We’re prepar­ing our busi­ness for the lower-car­bon econ­omy that avi­a­tion – and all sec­tors – must plan for,” JetBlue Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Robin Hayes said.
