As the calendar rolled into 2020, JetBlue announced plans to become one of the greenest airlines in the sky. Beginning in July, the airline plans to offset carbon dioxide emissions for all its domestic flights.

The airline also announced intentions to use sustainable aviation fuel on its flights from San Francisco International Airport.

Through its partnership with Carbonfund.org, the duo will continue to work on new projects and find new solutions to reduce carbon emissions. Since JetBlue joined forces with Carbonfund.org 12 years ago, the airline helped offset more than 2.6 billion pounds of CO2 emissions.

JetBlue also has developing collaborations in place with EcoAct and South Pole, two other carbon-offsetting partners. With expanded partnerships, JetBlue hopes to offset 15–17 billion pounds of emissions per year, in addition to its numbers with Carbonfund.org.

Other plans include investing in more fuel-efficient aircraft, such as the new Airbus A321neo model (JetBlue has 85) and modifying the air traffic control system to steer flights to destinations using more direct pathways.
