(Beware) British Airways Only Carbon Offsets Domestic UK Flights

BA (British Airways) is not proactively offsetting your flights carbon if the plane stops or begins anywhere other than the UK. This sort of loophole is somewhat confusing. We admire BA for their goal to become carbon neutral by 2050 and understand they have to start somewhere… but ultimately they’re leaving international passengers to their own resources if they want to offset their flight.

If your British Airways flight operates outside of the UK, you can still erase the footprint of your flight and support the Amazon Rain Forest’s crumbling ecosystem with 8 Billion Trees’ flights offsets (calculate your emissions here). Or, you can check out the list of airlines that are offering eco-friendly options for travelers here.
