  • How to fly more sustainably from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town?

    Some of the airlines flying passengers to Cape Town from Port Elizabeth have been doing a commendable job. However, the best way to appreciate them is to also put some effort into flying sustainably. One of the ways you can do this is by taking direct flights. Connecting flights make you cover long distances and take-offs demand more fuel, hence more emissions. You can also fly more sustainably by carrying reusable water bottles. If you have to use disposable products, we recommend that you dispose of them responsibly so that they can be recycled or disposed of appropriately. Additionally, carrying less baggage reduces the weight on the aircraft, which in return reduces drag and decreases emissions. The little effort you put into sustainable travel goes a long way towards helping take care of our surroundings.
