Flexjet is going carbon neutral with no surcharges to customers, including a 300% offset pledge in Europe
Flexjet says it has achieved carbon-neutral flight operations. The move comes via a partnership with 4Air, the rating system focused on sustainability in private aviation. Since January 2021, Flexjet has been purchasing credits to offset carbon emissions from all flights booked by its U.S.-based customers. Its verified credits will fund carbon offset projects. Those projects negate the impact of emissions generated by its aircraft at no additional expense to its customers.
