Volotea has passed a new audit of its sustainable development program, Voloterrabased on five pillars: an efficient business model, reduction of CO2 emissions, innovation and development, emissions compensation and transparency.

Volotea, which in 2022 became the first airline to pass thecomplete Bureau Veritas audit, continues to position itself as a key player in the transition to a more sustainable future in the field of aviation. In addition to investing a significant portion of its revenues in new aircraft and sustainable fuel (SAF), the Spanish airline is committed to reduce its direct CO2 emissions per passenger-kilometer by 50% by 2030.

However, given the progress made in recent years, Volotea hopes to exceed this objective and achieve it by 2025. Therefore, it has set itself a new, more ambitious objective, which consists of reducing its direct CO2 emissions by passenger-kilometer by 58% by 2030, compared to 2012.

Since its creation in 2012, Volotea has demonstrated its strong commitment to mitigating its impact on the environment and advocating a responsible approach to affordable travel for all by launching more than 50 initiatives aimed at reducing fuel consumption. Among these initiatives, one of the most notable was the complete transition of its Boeing 717 fleet to a fleet entirely composed of Airbus aircraft, including 41 A319s and A320s. At the end of 2022, the latest Bureau Veritas audit confirmed that the airline had achieved a significant 45.5% reduction in fuel consumption emissions per passenger kilometer compared to 2012, highlighting the substantial impact of these efforts.
