Similarly, Etihad Airways has taken several steps to reduce fuel consumption, including using newer and more efficient engines, single-engine taxiing, and retrofitting their planes to be lightweight.

Passengers also have a major part to play in ensuring sustainable travel. First, avoid single-use plastic on flights, and instead, bring your own reusable stuff.

Avoid surpassing the airline’s baggage weight limits as this leads to overloading, which means the aircraft burns more fuel and pollutes more. Since there’s no direct flight, choose the next best thing, a single-layover flight, since it is faster and pollutes less than a double-layover flight. Finally, prioritize flying with airlines that have taken steps to minimize their carbon footprint, such as those mentioned above.
