Conscious of the impact of its activities on the environment and on the occasion of the Aviation Summit held in Toulouse in February 2022, Luxair joined the signatories to reaffirm its support for the promise of Luxair joined the signatories in reaffirming its support for the promise of "carbon neutrality by 2050".  In this respect, Luxair, for which social and environmental responsibility is a major principle, is introducing a new "carbon offset" programme for business class flights and flights in Excellence packages booked with LuxairTours.  
 
This new carbon offset programme is part of a global approach to reduce its environmental footprint implemented by Luxair through numerous actions such as the progressive renewal of its fleet, the continuous optimisation of its flight operations or the reduction of single-use plastic on board its flights. 
 
Since 27 March 2022, the national airline has purchased the carbon credits necessary to offset the CO2 emissions for business class flights and flights in Excellence packages booked with LuxairTours. 
 
This compensation takes the form of a contribution by Luxair to certified projects aiming at developing sustainable management of renewable energy, forest conservation in South-East Asia and, more precisely, in Katingan Peatland located in Indonesia, but also to support the improved cooking stove industry in Rwanda in order to improve the living conditions of local communities while reducing the demand for biomass. Among a large selection of projects, Luxair chose three projects that are certified by Verra VCS and United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (FCCC). All of the chosen projects support UN Sustainable Development Goals.  
 
Luxair's new carbon offset programme is now automatically applied, for the passengers concerned, as soon as they select and book their Luxair business class flights and LuxairTours Excellence package flights. On its website, the airline identifies its carbon neutral products with a dedicated logo, specially created for this new programme. 

Other actions in favour of carbon neutrality by 2050 are being developed to enable Luxair to operate and fly in a more responsible manner. In the shorter term, Luxair is also studying the possibility of allowing its customers to voluntarily offset their CO2 emissions and thus do something good for the environment.
