ALWAYS GETTING GREENER.

Beyond engines, we look for every way possible to lower emissions and fuel use. For example, we are excited to introduce our new aircraft seat design in partnership with Recaro Aircraft Seating. Making their debut in March 2021, these new light weight seats offer a 30% reduction in weight and are designed to not only provide extra comfort for our customers but help us reduce our environmental footprint by saving thousands of gallons per year. The installation of approximately 32,600 Recaro seats throughout our A320 fleet is the next step in ensuring we are America’s Greenest Airline.
