When you now surf the internet for flights and tickets, the chief cause is to find the cheap flights or to know which airlines are serving your travel segment and their schedules. With the aviation sector being in the tenterhooks of the carbon emissions controversies, there is no denying the fact there is much the sector would need to do for making the future aviation greener. As a passenger, there are many choices which can be made while doing the flight booking that can contribute to green cause.
While doing searches, you can do a little research on what type of aircraft are the airlines using. You can opt to use that aircraft which is made of light weight materials, better aerodynamics and better engines which are generally more than 15 percent more efficient. By doing the online flight booking, you cut down on usage of paper which is used for printing of these tickets, which is an eco-friendly gesture. Further, you can minimize the weight of your packing. Remember less weight means more fuel efficiency. Then, as you approach the airports, you can use the public transportation systems rather than using the car.
Another way in which you can contribute is by using those materials at the airports which are bio-degradable and environment friendly. In fact, the airports around the world are adopting measures to allow only the bio-degradable substances at the airports.
So, besides the aircraft manufacturers, it is also the duty of the passengers to contribute in their own way for promoting the cause of green aviation.
