Carbon-neutral options for Lufthansa’s flights
The airline’s customers can now select between three CO2-neutral options when booking flights in order to minimize environmental impact.
The new selection is part of Lufthansa Group’s commitment to encourage sustainable flying, with more travel options and award miles to be added in the near future.
Passengers can now select between three CO2-neutral options when booking flights in order to minimize environmental impact.
The digital Compensaid program, developed by the Lufthansa Innovation Hub back in 2019, allows travellers to compensate CO2 emissions while flying, by using Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), produced from biogenic materials. The second option empowers myclimate projects developed by the environmental NGO based in Germany, projects that aim both at reducing emissions and help biodiversity. The final choice is a mix between the first two options.
“We continue to invest more than ever in the quality and sustainability of our flights. We already are the largest buyer of SAF in Europe and offer the most comprehensive range of ways to fly CO2-neutral. And we have now integrated this into the booking process. We want to make it as easy as possible for our customers to save CO2.
“People not only want to fly and discover more of the world – they also want to protect it. We believe in this way an important contribution to do this can be made. I am convinced this will inspire more and more passengers to travel sustainably,” commented Christina Foerster, Member of the Lufthansa Group’s Executive Board.
The service is expected soon also for Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines and SWISS.
As part of the its sustainability strategy, Lufthansa Group aims to half flying net-carbon emissions by 2030, as well as go full carbon neutral by 2050.
