Comair Flight Services launches Pure Flight Programme

September 11, 2019:

Comair Flight Services is proud to announce the launch of its carbon offsetting initiative, the CFS Pure Flight Programme.

Whilst a number of other aircraft operators offer optional carbon offset initiatives, CFS is the first in Africa to go carbon neutral on all its flights and the offset cost is automatically included in the price of any charter flight operated by it.

The CFS Pure Flight Programme will offset its aircraft CO2 emissions by supporting various projects that not only reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but also aim to alleviate poverty. Many of these carbon offsetting projects also provide wider benefits in addition to carbon reduction, such as biodiversity, education, jobs, food security, health and well-being in developing countries.

“Our clients spoke and we listened,” said Kerry Searle, client services director at Comair Flight Services. “Sustainability is very important to our clients and they wanted a simple way to offset the carbon their flights produce and still remain competitive on pricing, and I think we've been able to achieve that.”

In partnership with Credible Carbon, a South African carbon registry, CFS sources carbon credits from independently reviewed and accredited projects that actually reduce carbon dioxide emissions and Comair Flight Services does not profit from these transactions in any way.

Justin Reeves, CEO Comair Flight Services, says “At CFS we take our environmental responsibilities seriously. Among our efforts to tackle climate change, we have set up the CFS Pure Flight Programme in partnership with the team at Credible Carbon to help offset the carbon dioxide generated from air travel in a credible and simple way. I'm immensely proud of our initiative, which clearly sets us apart from our competitors. However I challenge them all to join us in reducing the impact our businesses have on our planet.”

Established in 2007, CFS today services a sizeable share of the southern African charter market. Headquartered at Lanseria International Airport in Johannesburg, South Africa, it offers a full suite of business aviation services including aircraft charter, management, sales and FBO services. Its modern aircraft fleet includes various aircraft types, ranging from single engine turboprops to large business jets and airliners, enabling it to cater for various group sizes and to meet all its clients' business and leisure aviation requirements.
