Ryanair’s environmental policy include: Investing billions in the newest, most fuel-efficient aircraft, committing to ambitious environmental targets and to eliminate all non-recyclable plastics within 5 years and allowing customers to offset the carbon cost of their flights.

“Operating the youngest fleet in Europe, high load factors and efficient fuel burn, has enabled us to continuously lower our CO2 emissions to become the greenest airline in Europe. Furthermore, customers can now offset the carbon cost of their flight by making a voluntary donation to a climate charity at the end of the booking process, and we have committed to going plastic-free across our operations over the next five years,” added Jacobs.
