Lufthansa has integrated the option to offset CO2 emissions of a flight directly into the booking. After flight selection on, customers can choose one of three options to fly CO2-neutral.

The first option is to use Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) that is currently produced from residual biogenic materials and directly reduces CO2 emissions.

A second option is to using high quality carbon offset projects run by the non-profit organization myclimate in Germany and other countries worldwide. These promote measurable climate protection by not only reducing CO2 but also locally improving the quality of life and biodiversity.

The third option is a combination of the first two options. An option can be selected with a single click; the payment is made when buying the flight ticket.


The basis for this new service is the digital solution "Compensaid" developed in 2019 by the Lufthansa Innovation Hub. During the second quarter of 2022, the same service will also be available for the Lufthansa Group airlines Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines and SWISS.

Business Air Travel

Since 2019, business air travel of Lufthansa Group employees has been CO2 neutral. CO2-emissions are also offset by myclimate.

CO2-neutral freight shipments

At Lufthansa Cargo, Lufthansa Cargo customers can opt for CO2-neutral transport of their freight. The add-on service "Sustainable Choice" is available on all routes with a freighter segment, for all product groups and all customers worldwide.
