There are greener ways to travel than hopping on an airplane, but let’s face it, sometimes a horse and buggy just won’t cut it. Fortunately, several airlines have taken the challenge of going green to heart and are doing their part to make flying a more sustainable way to travel.
One such airline is Virgin America, which you’ll find on many top green airlines lists. The company just announced that by 2016, 30 new aircrafts will be powered by fuel-efficient Leap engines, which can save Virgin $1.9 million in fuel costs per aircraft per year — and you know cheaper fuel costs means cheaper tickets. In fact, Virgin recently offered reduced fares in honor of its green initiatives.
