Inaugural flight Frontier AirlinesInaugural flight Frontier AirlinesFrontier Airlines is currently the greenest airline in the United States, and they are committed to protecting nature. They have a fleet consisting of 100 new Airbus A-320 Neo. These aircraft have a lower carbon emission compared to other aircraft.

The government’s policy and vision are based on sustainable tourism, and Frontier’s philosophy is a perfect match.

Each one of these aircraft has a different tail design with an image of a protected animal. These serve to educate us about the endangered mammals or birds that are in danger of becoming extinct. Aruba is competing with a local bird, “Kiki e Prikichi” to win a spot on the tail of one of their aircraft. They will announce the winner in January 2022.
