Jet2 Net Zero

Here at Jet2holidays, we know that holidays are amazing. We also know that travel needs to be sustainable, so we can keep enjoying trips for the long term.

By booking with us, you’re choosing a holiday provider that takes its environmental impact seriously. We’re already one of the world’s most efficient and environmentally friendly airlines. How? Our efforts over the last decade to reduce our impact through an efficient flying programme, waste reduction scheme and electrification programme.

But now we’re doing even more.

Our new ‘Jet2 Net Zero’ strategy considers sustainability at every stage of the journey – on the ground, in the air and in resort. And it’ll help us reach our target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Our sustainability strategy

Highlights of our sustainability journey so far

Increased efficiency
Since 2010 we’ve saved 1.8 million tonnes of CO2
Improved emissions
We’re ranked 11th most environmentally efficient airline in the world by atmosfair
Reduction in plastic
We’ve removed more than 9 million plastic items from our planes
Going electric
Almost half of our ground service equipment is already electric

Sustainability at every stage of the journey

Our new strategy considers sustainability at every stage of the journey – on the ground, in the air and in resort.

On the ground

Our operations on the ground will be carbon neutral from 2022. Plus, more than 50% of our ground services equipment will be zero carbon by 2023. We’ll also continue to grow our electrification programme so as much equipment as possible helps reduce our ground-based emissions.

In the air

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’ll also continue to invest in the latest technology and innovation – just like our new order for up to 60 Airbus A321 NEO aircraft. They have more seats, consume less fuel and in our view are the most efficient and environmentally friendly planes around. 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. We’ll cut 80% of single use plastics on our planes by 2023 compared to 2019 – equivalent to removing 11 million items. We’re also taking steps to increase and report on recycling levels.

In resort

Hotels play an important part in protecting the local environment. Which is why we’ll work with our hotel partners to promote sustainable operations to help tackle climate change and other localised issues like waste and water stress. By 2023, we’ll have developed our own Hotel Sustainability Charter covering hotel management as well as environmental, social and economic business impacts.

We’re also planning on making it easier to find sustainable hotels when you’re looking for a holiday by putting a new labelling scheme in place. That means you can choose a holiday that’s good for you and the environment.

Our commitments to you

  • Reduce our CO2 per passenger 10% by 2030.
  • All our carbon will be covered by offsetting all emissions not covered by existing carbon pricing mechanisms.
  • Committed to using UK produced Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) by 2026.
  • 50% zero emission GSE equipment by 2023.
  • Reduce single use plastics on our aircraft 80% by 2023 (equivalent to removing 11 million items on an annual basis)
  • Reduce our net emissions significantly though our carbon offsetting scheme, purchasing new aircraft and continuing our efficiency improvements.
