Choosing flights based on sustainable criteria
In a recent study 48% of respondents indicated they would pay more to help protect the environment. Allowing customers to select more eco friendly flights is a great way to facilitate this. To achieve this, the RDC emissions dataset can be seamlessly blended with local customer datasets and then integrated into the online search functionality.
Comparing search results to find the most sustainable flights
Many customers want to see the most sustainable ‘Greener Choice’ flights before choosing their flights. A 2019-20 survey (by a leading OTA) over a 6 month period found that flight bookings increased by 20% after offering this choice. The RDC CARE index is a great way to quickly compare route, airline and aircraft combinations.
Allowing customers to offset their flights
Many customers are prepared to pay a fee to offset their flight. RDC has a number of carbon offset partners who can facilitate this via a wide range of carbon offset projects.
Comparing emissions data based on class of travel
Many travellers and business travel agencies are mindful of difference that cabin class makes to the corporate or individual carbon footprint. The RDC dataset and API splits out emissions based on cabin class to help travellers make a more informed choice.
