EasyJet 'eco' engines now 25 percent cleaner

Posted June 24, 2008 by BookingBuddy

Aireasyjet2_2 These days, it’s all about cleanliness. Well, the cleanliness of your vehicle, at least. And now that being green is the new black, even the airlines are scrubbing up.

And low-cost carrier easyJet are aiming to be greenest in the game. Having teamed up with CFM International, they will be fitting the techie-sounding CFM56-5B Tech Insertion engines onto all new Airbus A319 planes. This engine will supposedly reduce NOx (mono-nitrogen oxides) emissions by up to 25 percent and also significantly lower CO2 emissions as well as fuel consumption.

By installing these ‘Green CFM56’  engines and therefore reducing the amount of brown filth spewing out the back of their planes, perhaps easyJet might also be able to persuade those customers currently worried about their carbon footprint to fly with them?

Also, fingers crossed that once easyJet start to lower emissions and fuel consumption, they’ll be able to pass those 25 percent savings down the line to us in the form of even lower ticket prices!
