The Lufthansa Group is extending its Green Fares to longhaul flights with this sustainable product offered for the first time in Asia-Pacific.
The fare will initially be tested on 12 selected routes for flights from November 30, and the airlines participating in the test are Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines and SWISS, which offer the connections.
The 12 selected routes include Bangkok-Vienna; Brussels-Kinshasa; Frankfurt-Bengaluru; Frankfurt-Miami; Hong Kong-London; London-Hong Kong; Munich-Seoul; Nairobi-Frankfurt; Paris-Bangkok; Sao Paulo-Zurich; Singapore-London; and Zurich-Los Angeles.
Passengers booking flights with Lufthansa Group airlines, for example from London to Hong Kong or Paris to Bangkok via the airlines’ hubs, will also automatically be shown the Green Fares tariff.
The fare includes full offsetting of individual, flight-related CO2 emissions through the use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and a contribution to high-quality climate protection projects. All projects in the Lufthansa Group climate project portfolio are certified according to the highest available standards.
In February, the Lufthansa Group successfully introduced Green Fares for routes within Europe and to North Africa – since the launch, over 500,000 passengers have opted for a Green Fares flight.
“The growing demand for our Green Fares fare shows that more and more people want to travel as sustainably as possible. We support them with suitable offers. The Green Fares test on longhaul flights will provide us with important insights for the further development of our portfolio for more sustainable travel,” said Christina Foerster, member of the Lufthansa Group Executive Board responsible for Brand & Sustainability.
