Traveling for the holidays? It’s wonderful to be able to visit family or escape to a special place. If you are going to travel, and you are sustainability minded, why not take a look at factors other than price to choose your airline ticket?
Seattle’s own Alaska Airlines is an industry leader in overall energy efficiency. They recently took the top spot in the International Council on Clean Transportation’s ranking of US Airline fuel efficiency. The report rated many factors, including ground transport, airplane design, seating occupancy, and logistics. Surprisingly, there is a 26% gap in efficiency between the top-ranked airline (Alaska) and the bottom ranked (Allegiant).
