  • How can I fly more sustainably from Cape Town to Johannesburg?

    The flight route to Johannesburg from Cape Town is one of the busiest in the world, so it is important to try and reduce the number of flights per day. Wherever possible, always try and take a fuller flight. Although boarding and disembarking may take longer, planes burn fuel when they take off, which pumps greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. If you avoid the less crowded flights, airlines may decide to streamline their service and do away with them – one less take-off a day means less carbon. Try and resist the temptation to drink bottled water on the plane – this generates huge amounts of plastic, especially with the smaller bottles. Rather, take your own water with you, in a reusable container. Newer planes often used between the Mother City and Jozi are more fuel efficient and thus more eco-friendly; so when you do your booking, try to opt for a carrier that uses newer planes. Finally, land at the airport closest to your destination in Johannesburg. If you’re on the West Rand, then definitely use Lanseria International Airport (HLA), so that your carbon footprint for ground travel is reduced. If you land at OR Tambo International Airport (JNB), consider using the Gautrain instead of a car, so that carbon emissions are reduced.
