Aviation is our passion, yet, we don't want to hide away from the negative sides it has. Flying is not environmentally friendly and climate-damaging, especially when you fly as much as we do. 

 

With this awareness, we have adopted effective measures to keep our climate impact as low as possible:

  • We do not fly if the destination can be reached within four hours by train, except booking changes beyond our control and unavoidable transfer connections.
  • We compensate the emissions (CO2, ozone, nitrius gases, water pavour, soot, sulphates, other particles) of our flights. Compensating for flights is clearly no ideal solution. However, it can help to reduce the impact until climate-neutral flying is possible. Thereby we decided to do it with the German market leader "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 CDM Gold standards and the first ever commercial e-kerosene production site. For more information: https://www.atmosfair.de/en/ 

Compensations 2021

 

LOT Boeing 787-8 Warsaw - Athens (Business Class)

KLM Boeing 777-300ER Dubai - Amsterdam (Business Class)



Compensations 2020

 

In 2020 we compensated 42 flights and a total of 26.4 tons of emissions. These emissions do not only include CO2 but also nitrius gages, ozone, soot, sulphates, water pavour and other particles caused by our flights.
