With an average aircraft age of 1.95 years, ch-aviation says the airline has been operating the world’s youngest fleet for two years running and that “maintaining modern and efficient aircraft helps decrease CO2 emissions in the industry and helps achieve better fuel efficiency, representing a huge step forward for sustainability.”
“Airlines and Aircraft Leasing companies dedicated to keeping their aircraft fleet young and using new generations of aircraft contribute significantly to the decrease of C02 emissions within the aviation industry and help achieve better fuel efficiency. To acknowledge their accomplishments, ch-aviation has decided to give them the recognition they deserve. It is important to note that this award is based entirely on non-manipulable aircraft data,” ch-aviation’s statement reads.
