Lufthansa Group to Offer Green Fares for More Sustainable Travel

The Lufthansa Group is further expanding its portfolio of sustainable travel offers and will be the world’s first airline group to offer a new product for more climate-friendly flying from February 15, 2023.

The Green Fares will make it possible to fly more sustainably in the future as the new fares already include offsetting of flight-related CO₂ emissions. This is achieved by using 20 percent Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) and 80 percent by contributing to high-quality climate protection projects. The Green Fares also offer additional status miles and a free rebooking option.

“People don’t just want to fly and discover the world – they also want to protect it at the same time. We support our guests in this with suitable products. We already offer the most comprehensive portfolio for more sustainable travel and are now expanding this further with the Green Fares,” says Christina Foerster, Member of the Lufthansa Group’s Executive Board responsible for Brand and Sustainability.

The new Green Fares will be offered by Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, SWISS, Edelweiss, Eurowings Discover and Air Dolomiti on more than 730,000 flights per year within Europe and to Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia.

The fares can be booked via the airlines’ websites as well as the NDC platform in Economy Class and Business Class. The new product for more sustainable flying now adds another pillar to the Lufthansa Group’s fare structure, which has been in place since 2015.

Harry Hohmeister, Member of the Lufthansa Group’s Executive Board responsible for Global Markets and Network, added: “The Green Fares were already successfully tested last year for flights from Denmark, Sweden and Norway. This showed that the demand for more sustainable travel offers is increasing. Now we are consistently taking the next logical step and are adding Green Fares to our well-known fare structure for flights throughout Europe and North Africa.”
