Go green this Black Friday: Cathay Pacific offers complimentary carbon offset

In addition to great fares to Asia Pacific and a Two Together promotion, Cathay Pacific is to offer free carbon offset for every ticket sold during “Green Friday”

[Tel Aviv, ISRAEL]: From the iconic jade colour on Cathay Pacific’s livery, to the airline’s wide-range of sustainability initiatives, Cathay Pacific is proud to be green.  

To complement Cathay Pacific’s Black Friday flight deals, the premium airline is launching Green Friday, an initiative to offset carbon emissions for every flight purchased between 20-30 November.  

At no cost to the customer, Cathay Pacific will automatically make double the attributable monetary contribution to carbon offset all flights purchased on between 20-30 November. The contribution will directly fund validated projects to offset carbon emissions while making a difference to local communities in developing countries around the world.  

Black Friday fares and Two Together offer 

In addition to great fares to Hong Kong, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Japan or Australia in 2021, customers booking with their travel companions can enjoy even more savings across Economy, Premium Economy and Business Class cabins.  

The Two Together offer will see additional discount off the second ticket, and Cathay Pacific will double the amount of carbon the airline offsets for both passengers.   

For three or more passengers travelling together, discounts will be applied to each ticket, including children’s tickets. All tickets will enjoy complimentary carbon offset as part of Cathay Pacific’s Green Friday initiative.  

Cathay Pacific and Sustainability  

Cathay Pacific is one of the world’s largest operators of the technologically advanced Airbus A350, used on our passenger services to Europe. At 25% more efficient than previous generations of aircraft, the airline’s Tel Aviv to Hong Kong non-stop route is Skyscanner’s Greener Choice.  

In 2019, a total of 33,922 tonnes of carbon emissions were offset through the airline’s own FlyGreener programme – Asia’s first programme of its kind. Since the launch in 2007, the FlyGreener programme has removed 160,000 tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere – a whole year of carbon emissions for 20,000 people in the Israel.  

Fly Worry Free 

Additionally, as part of the airline’s Fly Worry Free promise, Cathay Pacific is allowing unlimited ticket changes without any extra charge until 31 December 2020. With an impressive five-star Covid-secure rating, passengers can fly confidently with Cathay’s enhanced safety measures from check-in to landing.
