Introducing our programme

The global aviation industry generates CO2, contributing to climate change, which is one of the biggest global challenges we face right now. That is why, for every flight booked with us, your carbon emissions are included. Working with Climate and Development experts ClimateCare, by offsetting the carbon emissions from your flight, you will be supporting projects that not only cut carbon but also alleviate poverty and improve lives.

How it works

When you book your flight

With every flight you book with us, offsetting your carbon emissions is included, to allow for you or your business to give back to the planet.

We'll do the calculation

Your dedicated Account Manager will calculate the emissions based on the variables of your flight – the duration and the aircraft category.

Seamless payment

Your carbon offsetting payment is included in the cost of your flight. This will be listed as “Carbon Offsetting”.

You're offset

ClimateCare will then offset these emissions through projects that cut carbon and improve lives.

The projects you’ll help to support

The projects have been selected to provide a combination of the highest quality emission reductions whilst also delivering the most sustainable development impact. These projects include:

  • Providing rural communities with clean energy through wind farms around the world
  • Providing clean-burning stoves to families in Kenya that reduce fuel costs, harmful air pollution and emissions
  • Bringing safe water to households and schools through affordable and sustainable Aqua Clara water filters

FAQs

How will my carbon emissions be calculated?

We have categorised carbon emissions on a varying scale per aircraft category type. This allows us to be as accurate as possible when calculating your carbon emissions. Our calculations include conservative assumptions, giving you peace of mind and additional reassurance that your total carbon emissions for your flight will be offset.
