SEATTLE – Horizon Air’s newest Bombardier Q400 (registered N439QX), entering service this week, is sporting an eye-catching “Comfortably Greener” livery that spotlights the aircraft’s lower environmental impact compared to similar-size jets.

Horizon’s 76-seat Q400 uses 30 to 40 percent less fuel and produces 30 to 40 percent less carbon emissions than comparable jet aircraft.

“At Horizon Air and its sister airline, Alaska Airlines, we’re dedicated to reducing our impact on the environment,” said Dan Russo, Horizon vice president of marketing and communications. “One major way we’re doing that is by flying highly fuel-efficient aircraft.”

The new Q400 is the first of two with the “Comfortably Greener” livery. The second will arrive in December.

In 2007, Horizon announced its intention to transition to a single fleet of Q400s, in large part because of the aircraft’s greater fuel efficiency. Horizon is currently hoping to achieve a single-type fleet by the end of 2013. Presently, the airline operates 39 Q400s and 18 CRJ-700 regional jets.

Comfortably Greener was a livery released by Horizon years ago. They repainted it to a regular paint a few years back, glad to see it’s coming back! This and the 25th anniversary paint were my favorite by Horizon.

I Personally liked this livery and also in infinity flight I didn’t see a green livery supporting the environmental impact . It will be a great feature if the the DV add some green livery supporting the environment .
