Did you know that the takeoff and landing are the parts of a plane trip that use up the most fuel? This is why choosing a nonstop flight is far more fuel-efficient than connecting on multiple flights to get to your destination. But choosing the right type of plane can also help reduce your carbon footprint. Airplanes like the 787 Dreamliner use 20% less fuel than their counterparts, and some airlines are also fixing older planes to be more fuel-efficient.
