Brussels Airlines and Tomorrowland invest in more sustainable transport for world-famous party flights
From now on, only Green Fares will be integrated in the Global Journey Package and the full equivalent of SAF will be purchased for all party flights
Brussels, December 5, 2023 - In 2024, the world-famous Tomorrowland party flights will be more sustainable. Brussels Airlines and Tomorrowland close a partnership to offset all CO2 emissions resulting from party flights through the purchase of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). This can save up to 80% CO2-emissions1. Next to that, Green Fares2 are the standard plane ticket integrated in the Global Journey package for the international festivalgoers. Brussels Airlines aims to close more partnerships like this in order to reduce its carbon footprint significantly.
Brussels Airlines and Tomorrowland are aware of their environmental impact and have been investing for many years now in reducing their footprint. Both companies are actively looking for a balance between their passion for music and travel and their responsibility to protect the planet for future generations. This new partnership allows festivalgoers to completely offset the personal flight-related CO2 emissions to and from the festival.
“Embarking on a journey towards a better world tomorrow begins with the steps we take today. Together with Brussels Airlines we can unite festivalgoers from around the globe at Tomorrowland in Belgium. Now we are working collaboratively to amplify the power of collective action and create positive change for all, that starts with us. The People of Tomorrow can contribute to sustainability projects and at the same time reduce the environmental impact of their flights.”
- Debby Wilmsen, Head of Media Relations & Internal Communication, Tomorrowland
For the 11th time, Brussels Airlines will bring partygoers from all over the world to Belgium, to the internationally renowned music festival. For the edition of 2024, all sold plane tickets in the Global Journey packages on Brussels Airlines will be Green Fares. This is a specific fare of Brussels Airlines and all Lufthansa Group Airlines where passengers can purchase 20% Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) and contribute for 80% to high-quality, Belgian and local climate compensation projects.
On the special party flights, both partners even take it a step further. In addition to the Green Fare, Brussels Airlines and Tomorrowland contribute to the other 80% SAF. Lufthansa Group will purchase the equivalent of SAF for the fuel necessary for these party flights.
“At Brussels Airlines, we work very hard to combine our passion to discover the world with our responsibility to protect it for future generations. We aim to halve net carbon emissions by 2030 compared to 2019, and to be carbon neutral by 2050. Sustainable Aviation Fuel, together with fleet renewal, is a key lever in obtaining these goals. Lufthansa Group is already one of the biggest SAF-buyers in the world. We encourage every individual passenger to contribute to more SAF, with our Green Fares.”
- Balázs Németh, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager, Brussels Airlines
The tickets will go on sale as from 6th December. All details can be found here.
100% SAF for as many partnerships as possible
Brussels Airlines will try to convince as much partners as possible to close similar agreements. Football team Royal Union Saint-Gilloise is already a partner that joined the coalition. As of now, 100% SAF will be purchased for their flights when they travel to international games.
What is SAF?
1 When used in neat form (i.e. not blended) and calculated using recognized life cycle analysis methods, such as the CORSIA methodology.
2 The Tomorrowland Green Fares do not include the additional status and award miles.
