We try to practice what we preach. We wouldn't encourage our customers to manage their environmental impact without doing the same ourselves. So we are continually reviewing our ground operations to maximise efficiency.
Getting our planes emptied, cleaned, checked, refuelled and boarded with passengers and luggage as quickly as possible means we need fewer airport services than other airlines, so we use less energy on the ground. It also means our planes can be more efficient, as well as requiring fewer gates and other airport infrastructure than full-service carriers.
Quicker turnarounds and greater efficiency requires less ground equipment. That's why easyJet:
Being efficient on the ground keeps our emissions to the minimum.
Keeping things simple doesn't just make our business run smoother it also helps us be more environmentally friendly. Our airport infrastructure is deliberately simple with:
So we only have simple airport requirements that don't need expensive, energy intensive facilities.
Lots of people would like to be greener travellers on the ground too but often there isn't the option, so we strive to provide that choice when it comes to getting to your flight. Local, convenient airports with good public transport links means you can choose to get to the airport quickly, easily and in a more environmentally friendly way.
Did you know that the average age of easyJet's fleet is just 3.4 years? Newer planes are more efficient.See what else we're doing in the air
Carbon offsetting is a way you can balance the emissions produced by your easyJet flight with an equivalent carbon dioxide saving elsewhere..Find out more about our carbon offsetting programme
