How to offset the carbon emissions of your Finnair flight
Now Finnair customers can contribute directly to reducing their environmental footprint with the Push for Change service.
Air passengers are more discerning in terms of sustainable travel and want to know that airlines are doing everything in their power to reduce the impacts of air travel on the environment.
The Push for Change service makes it possible to donate carbon dioxide offset charges when booking Finnair flights. The offset charge is one euro for a return flight within Finland, two euros for a return flight within Europe, and six euros for a return intercontinental flight.
Customers can also choose to support biofuel flights. The use of biofuel reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 60 to 80 per cent depending on the raw material. The prices for supporting biofuel are 10, 20, and 65 euros for return flights within Finland, Europe, or between continents. These have been calculated based on the assumption that a 15 per cent biocomponent blend is used and that all passengers select this option.
“We want to offer the best solutions for responsible air travellers,” says Finnair CEO Topi Manner. “Aviation has several positive economic and social impacts, and it is important that we work hard to build more responsible air travel.”
Finnair Plus members can use points to pay for the Push for Change service.
