Air Transport World (ATW) Magazine today revealed the winners of its inaugural 2012 Eco-Aviation Awards, naming Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV) as the Eco-Pioneer of the Year for the airline’s focus on efficiency long before environmentally-sound business practices were understood or recognized.
Being named most environmental airline is kind of like being called the most honest advertising executive. Still, the designation points once again to how Southwest does business differently – and smarter – than its peers.
