Pegasus Airlines, Türkiye’s premier low-cost carrier, has unveiled a fresh Nordic partnership on sustainability. The initiative, realized in collaboration with the innovative Norway-based climate tech firm CHOOOSE, empowers passengers to understand and counteract their travel-related emissions.
Through the partnership with the Norway-based CHOOOSE, Pegasus Airlines now offers a unique service to its customers. Upon booking a flight, travelers may visit flypgs.chooose.today. Here, they can calculate the carbon footprint of their journey, gaining insights into the environmental impact of their travel. Furthermore, they are offered the opportunity to neutralize their emissions by contributing to verified climate solutions.
In a statement that underscores the airline’s commitment to the sustainability objectives of the aviation industry, Güliz Öztürk, the CEO of Pegasus Airlines, stated:
“At Pegasus Airlines, we are very happy to have taken yet another stride towards sustainability. On climate action, we have committed to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050. We have strengthened our commitment further through our emissions intensity target, aiming to reduce carbon emissions per revenue passenger kilometres by 20% by 2030, compared to 2019 levels. Our targets will require significant abatement actions in our operations and the infrastructure we use. We are working on a wide range of initiatives to achieve our targets. We also know that our passengers have expectations to be presented with opportunities to take action regarding their travel. When it comes to sustainability, we strongly believe that the entire ecosystem should act together and therefore take collaborative action. Therefore, we wanted to create an additional platform to encourage our guests to contribute to climate action when they travel. We are happy to be launching this new climate program in collaboration with CHOOOSE. We hope that this program will provide us with more opportunities to engage with our guests regarding our sustainability efforts.”
“We are proud to be partnering with Pegasus Airlines and helping their passengers to contribute to climate action. More and more people are looking to understand their emissions and support climate solutions. We at CHOOOSE are excited to be making climate action more accessible to travellers in Türkiye and beyond,” said Andreas Slettvoll, CEO at CHOOOSE.
Pegasus Airlines Supports Corporate ESG with CHOOOSE Partnership
Pegasus Airlines’ partnership with CHOOOSE enables travelers and corporate travel managers to track their flight carbon footprint better. This innovative tool estimates the greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) generated by their flights and provides an opportunity to offset these emissions voluntarily.
