American on Sustainability

9th December 2019 - 10:50pm

At American Airlines, we know that global business comes with global responsibility. We recognize that air travel impacts the environment, and we are committed to proactively minimizing those impacts through sustainability efforts.  Now and in the future, American Airlines aims to be a leader in sustainability.

We’re committed to proactively minimizing the environmental impacts of air travel in a number of ways, and we are continually putting pieces into place to build on our sustainability efforts. Here are a few key initiatives:

  • Fleet Renewal: We have taken delivery of more than 500 aircraft and retired virtually the same number, giving American the youngest fleet of any U.S. network carrier. Many of our new aircraft are up to 40 percent more efficient than the aircraft they replace.
  • Fuel Smart Program: Our team-member led program focuses on operational efforts such as reducing axillary power unit (APU) use, washing engines, and encouraging single-engine taxi when practical.
  • Other efforts involve reducing Waste & goal on renewable energy and sustainable jet fuels.

This is just a snapshot of what we’re doing to take care of our environment, just as we take care of people on life’s journey each and every day.
