After previous studies on fuel efficiency of US airlines on domestic routes and of 20 major airlines that are active on the transatlantic market, the International Council on Clean Transportation has now released a report to map the fuel efficiency of the 20 major carriers that are active on transpacific routes. Hainan Airlines from China and All Nippon Airways (ANA) from Japan were the most fuel-efficient airlines on transpacific operations in 2016, both with an average fuel efficiency of 36 passenger-kilometers per liter of fuel (pax-km/L), 16% better than the industry average. Qantas Airways from Australia ranked as the least fuel-efficient, falling 41% below the industry average. Qantas burned an average of 64% more fuel per passenger-kilometer than Hainan and ANA in 2016.
