Share this article

Air India will now save $16M on their flights by implementing innovative alternatives to traditional air travel. According to Fast Company, the airline has cut contingency fuel from 5% to 3% and decreased aircraft weight by reducing the amount of water, the weight of food carts, and the magazines on board. Also, Air India has adopted new methods of flight, such as flying at a straight line at optimal altitudes and speed, practicing a "continuous descent" approach during landing, and using a single engine during taxiing, and also deriving pre-flight power from sources on the ground.

Money saving and environmentally friendly--now that's innovation.
