Having a good time in flight now pays, as airlines have long charged passengers more for food, extra baggage and more legroom – and this is a way to cope with their higher costs and primarily more expensive fuel . Germany's Lufthansa now wants consumers to pay for reducing the environmental impact of flights as well.

In particular, as reported by Bloomberg, Europe's largest airline will offer travelers a choice of so-called green fares from tomorrow Wednesday, adding a surcharge for the purchase of sustainable jet fuel and carbon offsets.

< p>The move marks the latest effort by a European airline to allay concerns about the environmental impact of flying, the most carbon-intensive form of travel. “People don't just want to fly and discover the world, they also want to protect it at the same time,” said Christina Förster, member of the Lufthansa Executive Board for Sustainability.

The new tickets will allow customers to offset flight emissions with 20% in sustainable aviation fuel and 80% in contributions to climate protection projects, Lufthansa said. While the carrier didn't say exactly how much the new fares will cost, which is obviously of interest to many people on the Old Continent, it did give an order of magnitude. London to Frankfurt this week by around 7% to €230. The surcharge paid by the passenger will not be used to purchase fuel for the same selected flight, but will flow into Lufthansa's fuel purchase system. The German group, which is made up of individual carriers, has finally pledged to halve its carbon dioxide emissions from 2019 levels by 2030.
