Aviation is our passion, yet we don't want to hide from the negative sides it has. Flying is climate damaging, especially when you fly as much as we do.
That's why we've taken steps to reduce our impact on the climate::
In 2023 we've offset the emissions of the following eight flights so far. That's a total of about 9.3 tons. These emissions do not only include CO2-emissions but also the carbon-dioxide equivalents of nitrous gases, ozones, soot, sulphates, water vapor and other particles caused by our flights. Emitting pollutants at the general flight levels is up to 4.7-times more damaging than near the ground as the atmosphere at these altitudes is more vulnerable.

In 2022 we've offset the emissions of 30 flights. That's a total of 17.7 tons. These emissions do not only include CO2 but also nitrous gases, ozone, soot, sulphates, water vapor and other particles caused by our flights.
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.
*Applies only to flights within the European Union.
** Except booking changes beyond our control, unavoidable transfer connections or special flights and events.
***Due to financial reasons, we offset the emissions not during the booking or immediately after the flight but successively over the year. However, each flight is offset by the time of the publication of the corresponding Trip Report.
