Lufthansa Group Offers Green Fare
The Lufthansa Group is expanding its CO2-neutral flight and along with SWISS, Austrian Airlines and Brussels Airlines, the partnership is offering a new fare that already includes full CO2 compensation in the price.
The fare includes 80% of the offsetting that is done through climate protection projects and 20% through the use of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF). In the pilot project, the new Green Fare will initially be offered to all guests booking their flight from Denmark, Sweden and Norway.
The Lufthansa Group is the first international aviation group to offer its customers a separate ‘green fare’ for CO2-neutral flying with SAF.
The Green Fare is now displayed alongside the familiar fares (Light, Classic, Flex) as an additional fare option in the online booking screen directly after the flight selection. Starting in autumn, travel agency partners in Scandinavia will also offer the new Green Fare.
"We want to make CO2-neutral flying a matter of course in the future. As of now, we are offering a dedicated ‘green fare’ for the first time, which already includes the complete offsetting of the flight's CO2 emissions through sustainable aviation fuel and certified climate protection projects, already embedded in the price," says Christina Foerster, Member of the Lufthansa Group's Executive Board, responsible for Brand and Sustainability in a statement.
By 2030, the company's own net CO2 emissions are to be halved compared to 2019 and by 2050, the Lufthansa Group wants to achieve a neutral CO2 balance.
