Greener in Seattle: two airlines work to reduce emissions and clean our skies

The airlines are coordinating with the Port of Seattle, Boeing and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on the project, dubbed "Greener Skies", by using satellite-based flight guidance technology pioneered by Alaska Airlines to descend more efficiently and reduce aircraft fuel consumption, emissions and noise in the Puget Sound region.
