On Friday (February 4, 2022), Lufthansa announced the introduction of yet another option for guests to offset the CO2 emissions of their air travel directly while onboard. Starting today, the service will be available on short and medium-haul flights with internet connectivity to and from Munich. The Lufthansa Group carrier SWISS will also introduce the test program on select long-haul flights. The new option uses technology of the ‘Compensaid’ platform for CO2 neutral air travel developed by the Lufthansa Innovation Hub in 2019, which has been integrated into the booking platforms of Group airlines and is also an integral part of the Miles & More loyalty app.


The feature will now be displayed to guests in the onboard entertainment system, where they can use a slider to choose how they wish to offset toe CO2 emissions of their flights, either via SAF, via high-quality carbon offsets projects run by the non-profit organization myclimate, or by combining both options. The service is free of charge via the inflight internet on the customers’ own personal mobile devices. The new app also allows guests to see how many other passengers have already offset the CO2 emissions on their individual flight that day.

The Lufthansa Group has assumed responsibility for effective climate protection, and has developed a clearly defined path toward the goal of CO2 neutrality. The company plans on cutting in half their 2019 emissions by 2030, and to achieve a neutral CO2 balance by 2050. As part of their overall strategy, the Group is focusing on fleet modernization, optimization of flight operations, the use of SAF, and innovative new services for CO2 neutral flying.
