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 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 reduces the impact at least a bit. 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 a more climate-compatible flying. 

*Applys only to flights within the European Union.  ** Does not apply to special flights or events. ***Due to finanicial 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.


Compensations 2022

 

In 2022 we've offset the emissions of the following 28 flights so far. That's a total of 17.1 tons. These emissions do not only include CO2 but also nitrous gases, ozone, soot, sulphates, water vapour and other particles caused by our flights.

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. 


*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.
