Today NACA joined a coalition of aviation and manufacturing associations to urge congressional leaders to pass a wide range of legislative initiatives helping an already green aviation industry become even greener. The proposals focus on four key areas:
- Sustainable Aviation Fuel development, production and distribution
- Low/no emission technologies deployment
- Aviation environmental research and development
- Air traffic management modernization
NACA’s member carriers are driven to be highly fuel- and carbon-efficient and help lead our nation’s fight against climate change. By offering more passenger seating than other airlines on similarly-sized aircraft, the nation’s five ultra-low cost carriers – Avelo Airlines, Allegiant Air, Frontier Airlines, Spirit Airlines and Sun Country Airlines – have the lowest fuel consumption per seat in the United States. We believe these legislative initiatives will enhance the U.S. airline industry’s ongoing efforts to reduce its carbon footprint and would pay near- and long-term dividends in the battle against climate change.
