Environmental Challenge Confronted:

Reducing Carbon Intensity in Air Transportation

 

Goal Pursued:

Continuous reduction in the following metrics:
  • Aviation gallons burned per 100 available ton miles
  • CO2 pounds emitted per available ton mile (CO2/ATM) for both statute and nautical miles

 

Best Practice Undertaken:

 The following are some of our best practices employed to reduce CO2 emissions:

  • Retrofitting existing aircraft to make them more fuel efficient. Added Winglets to our 767 fleet boosting aerodynamic efficiency.
  • Optimizing our flight paths.
  • Lowering flight speeds.
  • Reduce discretionary fuel by planning flight arrivals more precisely.  
  • Using technology to increase precisions of departures, arrivals, and taxi times.
  • Reduced aircraft engines during taxi reduces fuel consumption.  
  • Washing our aircraft engines increases fuel efficiency.
