SINGAPORE, 25 April 2022: To mark Earth Day on 22 April, Trip.com, a global online travel agency, and Etihad, the national airline of the UAE, launched a month-long ‘Travel with a smaller footprint’ campaign that allows Trip.com users who are booking selected Etihad flights get their flight’s carbon emissions offset for free.
Valid until 22 May, the sustainable campaign went live in Singapore, the UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy and Ireland and will be followed by successive launches in APAC markets, including Malaysia, South Korea, Japan, Thailand and Australia.
Hundreds of Etihad flights are listed on Trip.com sites with the ‘carbon offset’ tag.
In line with this year’s Earth Day theme, “Invest In Our Planet” the carbon emissions for selected flights are based on the ICAO Carbon Emissions Calculator, and a corresponding investment will be made in accredited sustainable projects to offset the flight emissions. Trip.com users whose flights are included in this campaign will see their offset investment made in two key projects – the Katingan Petland Restoration and Conservation Project in Kalimantan Province, Indonesia, and the Cordillera Azul National Park REDD+ Project in central Peru. Both of these projects focus on environmental protection and habitat restoration.
Through this campaign, Trip.com users will be able to take off on their flights, knowing they are doing so with an investment to offset their journey. See below for links showing all Etihad flights with free carbon emission offsetting available today on Trip.com:
