Like many people, I've been flying less over the last couple of years. My tips for (would-be) flyers in general: Fly less Choose efficient aircraft and efficient carriers Avoid short-haul Fly less Take direct flights And, er, fly less I looked into carbon offsetting and was surprised how cheap it is, with most places charging ~£7.50/ tonne. Or 93p for London-Geneva. I have no idea how genuine or effective any of the commercially-operated/ promoted schemes are; you might consider an investment in (or donation to) green technology instead. Obviously not taking the flight is better - prevention is better than cure - but it seems a good first step. I think expecting people to be perfect overnight is unrealistic and unnecessary. Easyjet have announced plans to fly an electric plane commercially by 2030. 500km range, so only small steps, and I'd expect that date to slip, but promising! No idea what the carbon emissions of the QM@ are. Probably not good!
