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 19 - 29 November for travel from 10 January through October 2022.
Green Friday: Flight deals and complimentary carbon offsetting
Cathay Pacific will be extending its Green Friday promotion globally, allowing passengers to benefit with exclusive flight offers, while the airline doubles its carbon offset for every ticket purchased.
At no cost to the customer, Cathay Pacific will automatically make attributable monetary contribution to carbon offset all flights purchased on cathaypacific.com between 19 – 29 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.
“Sustainability is one of the key pillars at Cathay Pacific. We recognise the effect carbon emissions have on the planet and constantly set strategic goals and plans to reduce and offset wherever we can. With the Green Friday initiative, we look forward to not only incentivising our customers with exclusive discounts to exciting destinations but also offsetting their carbon emissions. We are elated and are optimistic to making a change together with our customers,” said Vishnu Rajendran, Area Manager, Middle East.
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 numerous countries including UAE. At 25% more efficient than previous generations of aircraft and emitting 33% fewer CO2 on average. 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 offset more than 300,000 tonnes of carbon emissions from the atmosphere. Cathay Pacific has made pioneering efforts in supporting the development of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) and was the first airline investor in Fulcrum BioEnergy. Reaffirming its commitment to reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, Cathay Pacific is pledging to use SAF for 10% of its total fuel consumption by 2030. Furthermore, in 2019, the airline pledged to remove 50% of its annual usage of single-use plastic by 2022.
