The Lufthansa Group announced it is extending its Green Fares program to include long-haul flights in a move to promote sustainable travel. This initiative will initially be tested on 12 selected flight routes from November 30, 2023, including the Brussels – Kinshasa (BRU-FIH ) and Nairobi – Frankfurt (NBO – FRA) routes.

Passengers booking flights with Lufthansa Group airlines through their hubs will automatically be offered the Green Fares option. The program also encompasses routes with connecting flights.

Gaining Insights for Future Development

The Green Fares test on long-haul flights will provide us with valuable insights for further developing our portfolio for sustainable travel,” stated Christina Foerster, Member of the Lufthansa Group Executive Board responsible for Brand & Sustainability.


Ensuring Full CO2 Emissions Offsetting

The Green Fares include complete offsetting of individual, flight-related CO2 emissions through a combination of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) and contributions to high-quality climate protection projects, as outlined by Lufthansa.

Participating Routes and Airlines

The Green Fares long-haul option will be available from late November 2023 on select routes operated by Lufthansa Group airlines: Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, and SWISS, which offer the connections – if included in the respective route network.
