The most fuel-efficient airline in the US is Alaska Airlines

by Richa 25. September 2013 04:00

Alaska Airlines, which operates out of its hub at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, has achieved yet another milestone. The good news for the airline’s passengers is that their favorite operator has been voted as the United States’ most fuel efficient airline!

The declaration was made in a recent report released by the International Council on Clean Transportation. The non-profit research was conducted by the Washington D.C. based organization. The report is the first for the organization as well in terms of quantifying fuel performance for the U.S. airlines.

Alaska and its sister concern Horizon Air scored top ranks in the study conducted among 15 airlines operating out of the United States. The aim of this study was to determine the most fuel-efficient performer in the country skies.

The airline has over a period significantly invested in its fleet, technology and processes to enhance its fuel functioning. This is one of the primary reasons, which accomplished it as a better performer over its competitors. The airline is concerned toward its sustainability in line with its environment friendly policies. These efforts have helped it keep costs on the lower end and offer quality services to the customers.

The airline is indeed happy and proud of its achievements. The carrier advanced its fuel efficiency in recent years and simultaneously in the process emitted 30 percent less carbon. The airline’s decision to switch to Boeing 737 and Bombardier Q400 is the most notable cause. Both these aircrafts have created a niche for themselves as the most fuel-efficient aircrafts in their classes.

Some other measures taken by the airline to achieve this outcome include usage of eco-friendly service ware to serve meals and drinks, solar-powered boarding ramps, installation of wind-turbine solar panel in Nome, and usage of bio fuels on Hawaii flights.
