Climate change is one of the greatest global challenges facing the international community. Aviation accounts for over 80% of our carbon footprint, and our focus is therefore on reducing the climate impact of our TUI airlines. In 2017/2018, TUI airlines’ relative carbon emissions were 66.7g per revenue passenger kilometre (gCO2/RPK).
We already run the most carbon-efficient airlines in Europe, have a strong history of backing new, carbon-saving technologies, and support progressive climate policies for aviation. But we will continue to focus consistently on reducing airline emissions, also through the renewal of our airline fleet. TUI Group was the first tourism group to launch the Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft to its fleet. The Dreamliner consumes around 20% less jet fuel than comparable aircraft. With the Boeing 737 MAX, we will have 72 new and 15% more efficient and quieter aircraft in our fleet by 2023. In addition, all TUI holiday airlines are certified according to the internationally recognised ISO 14001 environmental standard.
