Virgin Airlines Drops $1.4B On Fuel-Efficient Engines

Modern day aircrafts currently run on fossil fuels that both pollute the environment, and are a limited natural resource (AKA, it cannot be recreated or made). Thankfully, Virgin Airlines is stepping up to the plate by spending $1.4 billion on ultra fuel-efficient engines.

Rather than adopting biofuel technology, which is still at an infant age, Virgin Airlines is instead investing in ultra fuel-efficient aircraft. The engines are designed by CFM International and are touted to save $1.6 million in fuel costs each year, per plane.
