Travel Business Review - 27 May 2011

Alaska Airlines, an airline owned by Alaska Air Group, Inc (NYSE: ALK), a US-based holding company, has announced results of a study by Sustainable Aviation Fuels Northwest (SAFN), a US-based organisation searching for viable bio fuel alternatives.

The SAFN report indicates that early government policy support will aid creating an aviation bio fuels industry in the US.

SAFN results in a joint initiative from Boeing (NYSE: BA), Alaska Airlines (NYSE: ALK), Portland International Airport, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Spokane International Airport and Washington State University, in US.

The airline chairman and chief executive officer, Bill Ayer, said, 'Alaska Airlines has made significant strides in reducing its environmental impact by enhancing the efficiency of its operations, including using satellite-based flying technology and investing in the most fuel-efficient airplanes in their class - but efficiency is only part of the answer. In order for the aviation sector to continue its impressive record of fuel efficiency and emissions reduction while continuing to grow, it is important that a sustainable supply of aviation bio fuels is developed.'
