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 most efficient airlines, ranked 11th by Atmosfair for climate efficiency out of over 200 airlines, and emitting less C02 per passenger per km than the industry average. 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

Holidays for everyone, all year round

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 millions of single-use plastics from our planes
Going electric
Almost half of our ground service equipment is already powered by electricity

What do we mean by “carbon covered”?

In a nutshell, we promise to offset every tonne of carbon dioxide our company emits that’s not already covered by our contribution to existing government schemes. Offsetting means we invest in environmental projects that reduce carbon emissions across the world, equivalent to the amount of carbon we emit.

But carbon offsetting isn’t all we’re doing. Over the last decade we’ve worked hard to reduce our carbon emissions through an efficient flying programme by investing in our fleet. And from this year, our offices are now running off renewable electric energy, and our Jet2.com ground handling operations at our airports will be carbon neutral too.

And we won’t stop there. In the next few years, we’ll bring new, more efficient planes into our fleet, use sustainable aviation fuel, produce a hotel sustainability charter, and continue to dramatically reduce our plastic usage. It’s all part of our mission to make flying more sustainable in the future.

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. More than 50% of our ground service equipment (GSE), will be powered by electricity, either fully electric or hybrid, or by biodiesel 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 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.

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 is good for you, staying in a hotel which is more sustainable.

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.
  • More than 50% of our ground service equipment (GSE), will be powered by electricity, either fully electric or hybrid, or by biodiesel by 2023.
  • 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.
  • Reduce our net emissions significantly though our carbon offsetting scheme, purchasing new aircraft and continuing our efficiency improvements.
