CO₂ Offset: Lufthansa Group Successfully Launches Green Fares

The Lufthansa Group has become the world's first airline group to offer a flight fare that includes offsetting of individual, flight-related CO₂ emissions. 

The new Green Fares offer for more sustainable travel has been available for booking since mid-February. In the first 100 days since its introduction, around 200,000 guests have already opted for a Green Fares flight within Europe or to North Africa, thus contributing to more sustainable flying.

The route with the highest number of Green Fares bookings is Zurich-London with SWISS, followed by Hamburg-Munich with Lufthansa.

The Green Fares make it possible to fly more sustainably with just one click, as the new fares already include offsetting of flight-related CO₂ emissions. This is achieved by using 20% Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) and 80% by contributing to high-quality climate protection projects.

The Green Fares also offer additional status miles and a free rebooking option. The Green Fares are offered by Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, SWISS, Edelweiss, Eurowings Discover and Air Dolomiti on more than 730,000 flights per year within Europe and to Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. The Green Fares can be booked via the airlines' booking portals.

Lufthansa Group airlines offers their guests various options for offsetting the CO₂ emissions of an individual flight - from a "green fare" and additional offsetting offers in the booking process to the possibility of making an individual contribution during the flight or afterwards.

Currently, 3% of passengers offset CO₂ emissions through one of the offers along the travel chain. Lufthansa Group's goal is to inspire 5% of its passengers to travel more sustainably by the end of the year.

Last year, Lufthansa Group passengers offset about 43,900 tons of CO₂ by purchasing Sustainable Aviation Fuel and about 380,000 tons of CO₂ through high-quality, long-term climate protection projects.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
