Exeter’s Flybe airline is the UK’s greenest, for the second year running, after picking up the Most Environmentally and Socially Responsible Budget Airline at the British Travel Awards.
But that wasn’t the only award to get stowed away in the overhead lockers – it also bagged the Aviation ICARUS award at the Environmental Supplier Awards 2009/2010, and was named Air Transport World’s 2009 Regional Airline of the Year and European Airline of the Year by Aviation Week’s Overhaul & Maintenance magazine,
Chief commercial officer Mike Rutter said: “We would urge other airlines to adopt a responsible attitude to climate change by investing time and money into newer and more fuel efficient fleets and adopting eco-labelling programmes.
“We are again throwing down the gauntlet and hope that the recognition we’ve just received will spur others into taking these positive steps.”
