  • How can I fly more sustainably from South Africa to the United Kingdom?

One way to achieve this is by adhering to the baggage limit provided by your airline before boarding your flight. Heavy baggage increases the weight of the plane, making it burn more fuel hence emitting more carbon. You can also opt for a direct flight to the United Kingdom instead of flights with layovers. Direct flights only have one take-off and landing, making them burn less fuel than flights with more than one take-off and landing. Another way you can ensure your flight is eco-friendly is by booking economy-class seats on your flights. These seats take up less space than first-class seats hence reducing the amount of carbon footprint per passenger. Lastly, instead of using disposable headsets and single-use plastics provided during your flight, you can carry reusable containers and your headphones.
