We’re passionate about managing our business responsibly. This means supporting our people and local communities while celebrating equality, diversity and inclusion. And continuing the fight against human and wildlife trafficking.

It also means doing everything we can to reduce aviation’s environmental impact. From investing in sustainable fuels to flying greener, more fuel-efficient aircraft, we’re helping drive change within our industry.

We’re offsetting our domestic flight emissions

We began offsetting carbon emissions on all flights within the UK on 1 January 2020. Emissions are offset by investing in a range of global carbon reduction projects – such as rainforest protection and reforestation programmes.

Travelling further afield? You can still reduce your carbon footprint with the help of our carbon offset calculator.

Supporting a Flying Start in life

We’re committed to supporting people and communities where we fly. Our flagship charity programme Flying Start, a partnership with Comic Relief, helps disadvantaged young people in the UK and around the world have the best possible start in life. Thanks to the generosity of our customers and the incredible fundraising efforts of our staff, we’ve raised over £24 million. This means Flying Start has helped over 800,000 people to a brighter future.
