International Council on Clean Transportation finds Hainan and ANA operate the most fuel-efficient transpacific flights

The International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) has released its 2016 fuel efficiency ranking of 20 airlines operating nonstop flights between the mainland United States and East Asia and Oceania.

Powered by BTS (Bureau of Transportation Statistics) data provided by the Dallas-based company Airline Data Inc, the study shows that Hainan Airlines and All Nippon Airways (ANA) ranked first in overall fuel efficiency.  Qantas ranked last in overall fuel efficiency.

As with ICCT’s study of U.S. domestic carriers’ fuel efficiency, the Transpacific Airline Fuel Efficiency Study is yet another example of the breadth of information that can be gleaned from data provided by Airline Data Inc.

Jeff Pelletier, Managing Director for Airline Data Inc says that ICCT’s continued use of Airline Data Inc products demonstrates the value of their data tools for research, for planning, for tactical strategies and for everything in between.

“Accurate, quality data empowers people and organizations throughout the industry to make informed business decisions.  Our data has been a trusted source of information for more than thirty years and we’re proud to be an on-going part of ICCT’s fuel efficiency research program.”
