Amsterdam, March 1st, 2023 – Travel company Corendon partners up with SkyNRG and climate-tech company CHOOOSE, enabling Corendon’s holiday travelers to reduce their carbon emissions from flying. By adding Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) to their booking, travelers can enjoy their holidays more sustainably.
Making the holiday flight more sustainable is simple. During the booking, travelers can simply check a box to reduce part of their carbon emissions with SAF (on average 3%). Or, they can enter their travel details via the online Fly on SAF tool at another moment. The tool automatically calculates the carbon emissions of the flight and offers travelers the choice whether their carbon emissions should be partially or completely reduced by using SAF.
CHOOOSE’s enterprise-grade APIs are used to power the carbon calculations and SAF option in Corendon’s digital booking process and on their website. The only input needed from the traveler is the flight itinerary. With SkyNRG’s Fly on SAF solution, Corendon is able to track, report and analyze the total impact across all integrated channels.
SkyNRG uses a system for supplying SAF called Book & Claim. With this system, SAF is not used on the aircraft the travelers fly with, but rather tanked into the fuel system of an airport close to the SAF production facility. The SAF is tracked and the corresponding carbon emission reductions are allocated to Corendon’s holiday travelers. The benefits of this system are that it reduces unnecessary carbon emissions and costs from fuel transport. By partnering with SkyNRG and CHOOOSE, Corendon enables its holiday travelers to contribute to reducing their carbon emissions and enjoying their holidays more sustainably, when and wherever they fly.
Steven van der Heijden, CEO of Corendon: “Making aviation more sustainable is difficult, but every step counts. To reduce air travel emissions a little bit, we as a company have invested in Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) and from today our customers can do the same. We reduce our emissions by adding SAF and our customers now also have the choice whether they want to reduce their emissions. Even with small steps, each step is one towards a less polluting future for aviation. I am proud that we can offer this via the SkyNRG and CHOOOSE platform.”
