We’ve got your carbon covered. On 1 January 2022, we’ll launch one of the world’s largest airline carbon offset schemes, offsetting all emissions not already covered by our contribution to existing schemes (CORSIA and UK and EU Emissions Trading Schemes). This means a flight with us will contribute to the growth of renewable energy around the world.
However, we know that offsetting isn’t enough. We will continue to invest in the latest technology and innovation, as demonstrated by our new order for up to 75 Airbus A321 NEO aircraft. The Airbus A321 NEO which has more seats, delivers a 20 per cent reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions per seat against previous generation single aisle aircraft models. It is therefore, in our view, the most fuel-efficient and most sustainable aircraft in its class.This’ll make flying with us even more efficient and further reduce emissions per passenger.
We’re committed to using all available options to reduce carbon. In the short to medium term, developing and utilising fuel with lower carbon output is one of the best ways to deliver on this. That’s why we’re working with a leading supplier of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) which reduces carbon emissions by around 80% compared to fossil jet fuel.
Our commitment to sustainability goes beyond carbon. Reduce single use plastics by 80% across all our flights compared with 2019 levels. This is equivalent to removing 11 million items by 2023 and relates to items Jet2.com purchases directly – cups, cutlery, stirrers, drink lids and plastic bags.
