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 reduce our climate impact:

  • 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 offset the emissions caused by each of our flights. These emissions do not only include CO2 but also other greenhouse gases and particles (e.g. nitrous gases, sulphates, water pavour, soot).  Offsetting is clearly no ideal solution, but it is the least that can be done to reduce the impact. You can see the offset certificates of each flight below.
  • With every compensation we additionally donate to Germany's first carbon-neutral synthetic e-kerosene production site to support the way to climate-compatible flying. 

*This applys only to flights within the European Union.


Compensations 2022

 

In 2022 we've offset the emissions of the following flights so far. These emissions do not include CO2 but also nitrius gages, ozone, soot, sulphates, water pavour and other particles caused by our flights. 

 

American Airlines Boeing 777-200ER Dallas - Frankfurt (E)

Turkish Airlines Boeing 777-300ER Dubai - Istanbul (E)

Lufthansa Boeing 747-400 Frankfurt - Dubai (B)

DAT ATR-42 Berlin - Saarbruecken (E)

Iberia Airbus A330-200 Madrid - Amsterdam (B)

Edelweiss Air Airbus A320 Zurich - Mallorca (E)

Swiss Airbus A220-100 Munich - Zurich (E)

Spirit Airlines Airbus A321 Newark - New Orleans (E)


*(E) = Economy Class, (P) = Premium Economy, (B) = Business Class, (F) =First Class

*Due to financial reasons we do not offset the emissions of a flight during the booking or at the flight date but successively over the year. However, all flights are offset at the time of publication of the corresponding trip report.


Compensations 2021

 

In 2021 we've offset a total of 7.2t 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. You can see the offset certificates for each specific flight below.  Furthermore we supported the production of CO2-neutral kerosene.
