SunWest has unveiled its latest special livery, dubbed Ecoliner. The aircraft represents a larger initiative from the company, which pledges to seek new and innovative ways to operate sustainably and responsibly, both in the air and on the ground. By 2050, SunWest hopes to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 50%, relative to its 2010 numbers.
"Our 2050 goal is lofty, but we're committed to achieving it," said Director of Sustainability Alison Bryant. "We have an incredible opportunity to reduce aviation's environmental footprint and create a long-lasting positive impact on the world."
Several flight operations policies have been implemented so far, including single-engine taxiing, continuous descent approaches, and limited usage of auxiliary power units. On the ground, SunWest has begun introducing electric ground service equipment, as well as investment into biofuel research.
SunWest is one of the fastest growing carriers in the United States. With hundreds of daily flights, SunWest has established itself as a leader in both business and leisure air travel by providing customers with honest and transparent prices.
Founded in 1980 with a handful of prop aircraft, SunWest has grown into a major carrier, operating the latest jet aircraft, all while maintaining the same award-winning customer service approach that got us where we are.
