NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 22, 2013) - CheapOair announces today its support of Earth Day, an international movement to protect the planet and secure a sustainable future. To help customers stay environmentally-friendly while away on vacation, CheapOair has compiled the following list of ways how airlines and travelers can stay eco-conscious.

  • Virgin Atlantic, a leader in flights to popular worldwide destinations, has implemented a program offering a $25 million prize for greenhouse gas removal.
