Many airlines are trying to deal with their carbon footprint by experimenting with alternative fuels or otherwise offsetting their use of jet fuel. Santa Fe Air is the first U.S. jet service to offset their carbon emissions; they donate money to Forest Guardians to plant enough trees to offset the emissions of each flight.
As far as commercial airlines, Continental Airlines is the first U.S. airline to pursue alternative fuels.
Southwest has won many awards one of the nation’s greenest airlines for the past 15 years and continues to rank highly as a green airline, but Continental is certainly staking its claim as one of the best major airlines in their efforts to pursue greener operations. Some of their initiatives include spending $16 billion to make their fleet more fuel efficient and designing green terminals. In addition, Continental’s efforts on the ground, which are often overlooked, such as minimizing idling times and utilizing alternative fuel vehicles, help to reduce their carbon footprint as well.
