  • How can I fly more sustainably from South Africa to Australia?

    Once you have found an eco-friendly airline to make the trip to Australia from South Africa think about booking a ticket in economy class rather than business class or first class. Because there are more passengers per given area in an aircraft in economy class this is a more fuel-efficient manner of flying. On long trips such as this, it can be difficult to book direct flights but if you can find a direct flight or make as few layovers as possible you will be making an incredibly positive impact on the environment.
