Eindhoven Airport offers passengers the possibility of CO2 compensation

The flight industry shows a growing awareness of its responsibilities concerning climate change. Producers of airplanes are working, although not exclusively for this reason, hard to reduce fuel consumption of their aircraft and airlines are also starting to take action.
