Morten Sondergaard about Costa Rica's NatureAir Saves The Environment‐ AboutAnywhere.com Showcases For most travelers on limited budgets and leisure time, visiting more than one location while on vacation can be too monetarily and time consuming. NatureAir offers flights short on cost and length; AboutAnywhere.com offers hotel rooms short on cost. Since 2004, Costa Rica’s NatureAir has been dedicated to providing travelers and locals alike with the opportunity to reach 15 destinations in Costa Rica with daily, minutes‐long, intra‐country flights – journeys that require up to eight‐hour drives – while protecting and conserving over 500 acres of tropical forests in the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica, one of the region’s most biologically diverse rainforests. How does NatureAir go about this? They offset over 6,000 tons of carbon dioxide on a yearly basis, compensate 100% of their carbon emissions, and keep their carbon output at a minimum by continuous improvements to their operations, scheduling and flight plans. All costs and fees for traveling on NatureAir go towards the company’s ultimate goal – ensuring “that the places we go to remain pristine for future generations…and your next visit”.
