The Lufthansa Group is investing billions in fuel efficient aircraft. This is the biggest lever to fly more efficiently. Each new generation of aircraft reduces CO2 emissions by up to 30 percent. But that alone is not enough to limit CO2 emissions. Air traffic is growing and continues to require fossil fuels.

Aviation is still a long way from an electric or hydrogen engine for large aircraft. The core problem is the lower energy density of batteries - and the storage of large quantities of hydrogen is still extremely complex.

The situation is different with Sustainable Aviation Fuel. It can easily be used in aircraft and is a real alternative to fossil kerosene. Find out more in the new fact check video.
