维珍大西洋航空公司的可持续发展项目名为“空气中有变化”，旨在关注对环境足迹影响最大的地区。该项目的重点是通过创新燃料、减少浪费和运营高效、安静的飞机来减少飞机排放。维珍航空一直与买家、供应商和设计师合作，以确保环境标准得到保持。维珍大西洋未来在可持续性和减少碳排放领域的发展有能力解决和减轻旅游业、环境和可持续发展之间的不和谐。为了减少碳排放，维珍一直在支持全球碳交易。然而，该航空公司与清洁技术公司LanzaTech建立了创新的可持续燃料合作伙伴关系，并与Natural Capital Partners合作抵消碳排放。维珍大西洋航空公司有一个未来的发展范围，到2020年减少30%的碳排放(维珍大西洋，2017)。一些有助于维珍减少碳排放的新进展是，欢迎787飞机加入它们的机队，并投资于高效的未来飞机，即到2019年达到12架a350。维珍大西洋航空公司已经通过加工乙醇(这是一氧化碳气体转换的结果)扩大到新的燃料，将用于改变航空基础设施(维珍，2017)。与煤油相比，这种新燃料可以减少65%的二氧化碳排放。随着碳排放的减少，环境污染将会减少，从而促进环境保护的可持续发展原则和环境与经济决策的一体化，从而有效解决旅游、环境与可持续发展之间的不和谐(Virgin Atlantic, 2016)。
The sustainability programme of Virgin Atlantic is named as “Change is in the Air” which aims to focus on areas that have the greatest impact on the environmental footprint. The focus of the project is to reduce aircraft emission by innovating fuels, reducing wastes and operating efficient and quieter aircraft. Virgin Atlantic has been working with the buyers, suppliers and designers to ensure that environmental standards are maintained. The future development of Virgin Atlantic in the area of sustainability and carbon reduction has the capability to address and mitigate the disharmony between tourism, environment and sustainable development. Virgin has been supporting the global carbon deal in order to reduce carbon emission. However, the airline company has created an innovative sustainable fuels partnership with LanzaTech which is a cleantech company and collaborated with Natural Capital Partners to offset carbon emission. Virgin Atlantic has a future development scope by reducing carbon emission by 30% by 2020 (Virgin Atlantic, 2017). Some developments that would help Virgin to reduce carbon emission are welcoming 787s to their fleets and making an investment in efficient future aircraft which is 12 A350s by 2019. Virgin Atlantic has scaled up to new fuel by processing ethanol (which is a result of a conversion of carbon monoxide gas) that will be used to alter the aviation infrastructure (Virgin, 2017). This new fuel will reduce CO2 emissions by 65% as compared to kerosene. With the reduction in carbon emissions, environmental pollution will be reduced and as a result, the principle of sustainable development of environmental protection and integration of environment and economic decisions can be facilitated and thus the disharmony between tourism, environment and sustainable development can be addressed effectively (Virgin Atlantic, 2016).
