Of course this also vastly decreases its overall carbon footprint.

How to fly more sustainably from Bloemfontein to Cape Town?

One of the most important eco-friendly things you can do to reduce not only your own carbon footprint when flying, but the overall impact of the airline industry, is to refuse all items made from plastic. Don’t buy small bottles of water, for instance, as these are having a devastating impact on the environment at the moment. Rather take your own reusable water bottle with you. If you’re flying during meal times, you can also ask not to be served food, for the same reason – the flight is only about 1h 30min, so consider eating beforehand, or enjoy a meal at your destination. Also resist the urge to take one-stop flights between these cities, no matter the cost-saving, as you’ll be flying via Johannesburg, which is a detour in the opposite direction, to the north, requiring an even longer flight south to Cape Town.
