BIG NEWS! Just announced toady, JetBlue has just announced plans to go carbon-neutral and to power some flights with 'sustainable aviation fuel'! Their plan is to offset more of its carbon dioxide emissions as part of a program to “prepare for a changing climate,” the airline announced in a new press release.
That can only mean one thing....
COLDPLAY CAN TOUR NOW!! ;)
“Air travel connects people and cultures, and supports a global economy, yet we must act to limit this critical industry’s contributions to climate change,” said JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes. “We reduce where we can and offset where we can’t. By offsetting all of our domestic flying, we’re preparing our business for the lower-carbon economy that aviation – and all sectors – must plan for.”
In a press release issued Monday, JetBlue vowed to start taking steps by July 2020, by bolstering the airline’s existing initiatives and offsetting an additional 15-17 billion pounds of carbon dioxide emissions annually. To achieve this, JetBlue is planning to add 85 more fuel-efficient Airbus aircraft to its fleet.
