Skylegs Calculates Flights CO2 Offset Cost and ASL Group Is the First to Benefit

The good news is that, as the clients (individuals and organisations) are becoming more environmentally conscious, they are willing to compensate the CO2 emissions that their flight produces. But how much would this cost?

Especially in Business Aviation, customers are more and more frequently requesting a flight quotation which includes the CO2 compensation cost, or at least the approximate amount of CO2 emitted during a particular trip. However, calculating this value in a separate tool for each quote flight would be highly time-consuming for aircraft operators and brokers.

The main goal of sales team members is building quotes and replying to customers’ requests as quickly as possible; aware of this, Skylegs launched a new feature at the beginning of the year, which is part of the Skylegs Green project, an innovative initiative launched in collaboration with the Belgian Vlaio Funding Support.

Both the amount of CO2 emitted, and its cost are automatically calculated during quote preparation, and it can be included in the price totals or not.

This feature has been developed in the past months in conjunction with ASL Group, who took the great initiative to start the Responsible Initiatives for a Sustainable Environment (RISE) project. The group will offer its passengers the opportunity to offset the CO2 emissions resulting from their flights as of now.
