JACKSON, Wyo. — Jackson Hole Airport announced today a new effort to make air travel more sustainable.
The Jackson Hole Airport Board is bringing The Good Traveler program to the Jackson Hole Airport.
The Good Traveler is an airport-led nonprofit that offers travelers a way to offset their carbon footprint via “carbon offset” credits. Funds go toward projects like wetland and forest restoration. Since its inception in 2016, The Good Traveler has offset over 23 million passenger miles.
“By providing our travelers an affordable opportunity to offset the carbon emissions we are partnering with them in our efforts to be sustainable,” says Jackson Hole Airport Director Jim Elwood.
Innovation in sustainable aviation fuels will be the next source of carbon reduction, and the Jackson Hole Airport Board was thrilled at the reception and interest Avfuel received on September 3 at the stormwater ribbon cutting. The Airport Board is keen on learning the latest in sustainable aviation materials and supporting programs like The Good Traveler program.
“We hear from locals and visitors that they are interested in being part of the solution when it comes to offsetting carbon emissions,” Elwood says. “We are proud to bring this program to Jackson Hole.”
