Keen to jet off to Europe or the U.S.? Cathay Pacific is offering massive ‘Green Friday’ discounts, which include the added benefit of offsetting carbon emissions for every ticket issued until 29 November 2021.
Cathay Pacific is today launching its Green Friday ‘Two Together’ promotion for Aussie-based customers.
The ‘Two Together’ offer will see a discount on the second ticket, with up to 50% off across Economy and Premium Economy and up to 30% off Business Class flights via Hong Kong to some of Australia’s favourite destinations, including London (from $1298pp), Paris ($1661pp), and New York ($1782pp).
Discounted fares are available from Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth.
Plus Cathay Pacific is adding complimentary carbon offset for every flight purchased via Cathay Pacific between 19 and 29 November 2021.
From the iconic jade colour on Cathay Pacific’s livery to the airline’s wide range of sustainability initiatives, Cathay Pacific says it’s proud to be green and make a difference to global climate change.
Cathay Pacific has made pioneering efforts in supporting Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) development for more than a decade 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.
Continuing its pursuit of greener aviation, the airlines Fly Greener program has offset more than 300,000 tonnes of carbon emissions since 2007, equivalent to the annual carbon emissions of more than 21,000 households in Australia.
Furthermore, from 2019, the airline pledged to remove 50% of its annual usage of single-use plastic by 2022.
“As the first Asian airline to launch an offsetting carbon scheme, we are proud to continue our sustainable development journey with our investment in Fulcrum BioEnergy and using it widely throughout our fleet,” said Rakesh Raicar, General Manager South West Pacific at Cathay Pacific.
We are delighted to welcome our Australian passengers to travel green with us this Green Friday.”
The airline says it will be making a difference not only within the organisation but also among communities. The contributions will directly fund third-party validated Gold Standard projects to offset carbon emissions while making a difference to local communities in developing countries around the world.
If you’re still a little hesitant about booking your flights, Cathay Pacific is easing the stress with its Fly Worry Free policy allowing travellers to make unlimited ticket changes until 31 December 2021 without the usual change fees.
