Qatar Airways has launched a new initiative that it hopes will help its passengers offset their carbon footprints when purchasing flights.

The carrier is the first in the Middle East to begin such a programme, which prompts customers to contribute towards offsetting after calculating their equivalent carbon consumption.

It is part of Qatar’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) commitment and was facilitated following an agreement with the International Air Transport Association.

Commenting on the company’s CSR aspirations, chief executive Akbar Al Baker said: “Qatar Airways strives to be the best in everything we do and an integral part of being an industry leader is to help lead the charge towards environmental sustainability.”

Meanwhile, Qatar has also been voted the world’s Best Economy Class in the annual Skytrax passenger survey, as well as Best Airline in the Middle East for the fourth year running.

Its cabin crew were also highly commended at the recent ceremony.
