Tips and tricks for a more sustainable flight

Whether you are driving the sand dunes of the Sahara, whale watching in the Pacific, or taking a walk in the Brazilian rainforest – this journey makes every explorer’s dream come true. Today more than 300% more people fly than in 1990. Here is a list made by yachtrentalflorida247.com with 4 tips and tricks for your next flight:

Choose to fly straight

Sometimes it is impossible to fly without rest. Maybe the airline is on strike, the destination airport is too small or too far away to get there all at once – we get that. When looking through carbon glass, it is important to choose the most direct connection path. Not those zigzagging on the map like bees with bad directions.

Choose to fly straight

Choose a cheap airline

Not every aircraft is designed to be fuel efficient, and not every airline makes investing in a fuel-efficient fleet a priority. A good rule of thumb is to choose an airline with a more modern fleet. Usually, the newer the plane, the more economical. The Airbus A350, Boeing 787 Dreamliner, Airbus A330, Embraer E2 and Airbus A220 use less than one gallon of jet fuel for every 60 passenger miles.

Make a decision to lighten your own load

When you are packing for the trip, you may be tempted to wear appropriate clothing (including shoes) to prepare for any situation. But how often are you invited to last-minute cocktail parties? And do you really need your laptop and tablet?

The benefits of lightweight packaging are more important than avoiding baggage fees. Every little ounce causes carbon emissions when you have to get it into the air. And airlines have been experimenting over the years to make it easier from food and cutlery to aviation magazines to flight attendants (!). One airline estimates that losing just one kilogram of weight from each aircraft in its fleet can save 14,000 gallons of fuel per year! So save a little on your next flight – it will make a difference in your carbon footprint.

Choose economy over business or first class

This is one of those times when cheap is also good for the environment. Simply put, the more people you can board the plane, the less CO2 per passenger. Business and premium seats are heavier and take up more space on the airplane. As a result, the passenger’s carbon footprint is three to nine times higher than the carbon footprint of a fuel-efficient passenger. So (try) to relax and get comfortable when you feel tense!
