Lufthansa and SWISS customers can now purchase SAF when booking their flights
After successfully completing the test phase, the "Compensaid" platform developed by the Lufthansa Innovation Hub will become the Lufthansa Group's central compensation service. Lufthansa and SWISS customers can now find "Compensaid" directly in the airlines' booking portals. This enables them to largely offset the unavoidable CO2 emissions from their flight with SAF. It is the world's first online platform of its kind that provides end customers with a transparent and rapidly effective way to offset their CO2 emissions when flying with the help of alternative fuels.
Two options are available to travellers for CO2 compensation via "Compensaid": On the one hand, they can replace fossil aviation fuels one-to-one with SAF. The platform calculates the price difference between SAF and fossil kerosene. Customers only pay the surcharge for the innovative fuel. Lufthansa Group's Fuel Management feeds the SAF into flight operations in Frankfurt within six months.
