Move is part of plans to achieve net zero emissions by 2040
Loganair has launched a new carbon offset programme which will include a mandatory charge of £1 per passenger to help it reach net zero by 2040.
The airline is planning to launch the scheme from 1 July, which it hopes will be able to achieve carbon neutral flying at a “practical” and “modest” cost.
The money raised will be invested in projects around the world to help remove the same amount of carbon from the atmosphere as is generated by Loganair flights. This includes reforestation projects and wind farms that will replace carbon-heavy coal and gas-fired power stations.
