Flying is not environmentally friendly and climate-damaging, especially when you fly as much as we do. To reduce our impact we compensate the emissions (CO2, ozone, nitrius gases, water pavour, soot, sulphates, other particles) of most of our flights in 2020. We decided to use the platform "atmosfair" as they also include the aircraft type, the booking class and not only CO2 but also other gases and particles in the calculation of the emissions. The money is invested in sustainable projects which conform to the UN CMD Gold Standards (atmosfair 2020).

Flights that we have compensated
Notice: Due to financial reasons the flights are not compensated during the booking or immediately after the flight but when we are editing the Trip Reports. This usually complies to four flights a month.
