This time of year, many of us will jet to a far-off destination to visit family and friends. Or for some, a much-needed holiday get-away is just the ticket. But here’s an interesting fact to be aware of before you reserve your flight: Airplanes produce more carbon dioxide during take-off and landing than they do while they’re in-flight. That’s why, environmentally speaking, you should always try to book a direct route when you travel by air. Plus there’s less chance of lost luggage!
