The Green Fares make it possible to fly more sustainably with just one click, as the new fares already include offsetting of flight-related CO₂ emissions. This is achieved by using 20 percent Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) and 80 percent by contributing to high-quality climate protection projects. The Green Fares also offer additional status miles and a free rebooking option.
The Green Fares are offered by Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, SWISS, Edelweiss, Eurowings Discover and Air Dolomiti on more than 730,000 flights per year within Europe and to Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. The Green Fares can be booked via the airlines' booking portals.
The Lufthansa Group airlines offer their guests various options for offsetting the CO₂ emissions of an individual flight - from a "green fare" and additional offsetting offers in the booking process to the possibility of making an individual contribution during the flight or afterwards. Currently, three percent of passengers offset CO₂ emissions through one of the offers along the travel chain. The Lufthansa Group's goal is to inspire five percent of its passengers to travel more sustainably by the end of the year.
The Lufthansa Group has set itself ambitious climate protection goals and aims to achieve a neutral CO₂ balance by 2050. Already by 2030, the Lufthansa Group wants to halve its net CO₂ emissions compared to 2019 through reduction and compensation measures. The reduction roadmap until 2030 was validated by the independent Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) in August 2022. The Lufthansa Group was the first airline group in Europe with a science-based CO₂ reduction target in line with the goals of the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement.
