Other elements of Jetting to Green include publishing an environmental and social report, and offering crew members and customers opportunities to volunteer and make a difference in their own neighborhoods.

Delta was the first U.S. airline to offer its customers a carbon offset program. Other airlines, including Cathay Pacific, Virgin Blue, and SAS have similar programs.

In partnership with JetBLue, Airbus, and International Aero Engines, Honeywell Aerospace announced that it will study the use of sustainable biofuel in commercial aircraft.
