TUI fly’s sustainability strategy remains on its successful path: The independent climate protection organisation atmosfair again rated TUI fly as Germany’s most climate-efficient airline. TUIfly has again been named one of the world’s top airlines, ranking third on the global list. The pole position is held by its British sister airline TUI Airways.

TUI fly has launched numerious measures to ensure a more environmentally friendly business. Among other things, the average jet fuel consumption was reduced to 2.52 litres per one hundred passenger kilometres. The new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft launching in 2019 will also contribute towards that goal. TUI Group already operates five aircraft of the latest generation of 737s which have even exceeded expectations regarding fuel and emissions savings at 16 per cent.

The measures are not limited to flight operations. Numerous measures have also been launched on the ground to ensure environmentally-friendly operations. For this reason, charging stations for electric vehicles have been installed recently at the employees’ car park of the TUI fly headquarters. The introduction of electric vehicles for aircraft maintenance on the apron is also currently being examined.

With its measures, TUI fly makes a significant contribution to the TUI Group's sustainability strategy “Better Holidays, Better World“, the aim of which is to reduce the ecological footprint and support people and regions in the destinations. “Our flights are already 27 per cent more climate-efficient than those operated by the six largest European airline. We are committed to continuing these efforts in order to further optimise the climate efficiency of our flights”, said Roland Keppler, CEO TUI fly.
