SkyAlps is a subsidiary of the FRI-EL Green Power Group, which saves around 860,000 tonnes of CO2 annually through the production of green energy. The CO2-emissions resulting from a whole year's flight operations are thus compensated by the group in just 6 days.
In addition, our aircraft type consumes around 50% less fuel than the average consumption of European aviation and is extremely efficient, especially on shorter routes. At 2.3 litres per passenger per 100 kilometres travelled, our Dash 8 Q400s achieve an emissions saving of around 50% compared to conventional jets.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) also confirm that the Dash 8-Q400 is far ahead of current regional jets and turboprops in terms of noise during take-off and landing due to its advanced design. This was confirmed by the airport's neighbours who farm in the fields on a daily basis.
