Ryanair today (8 Aug) released its July CO2 emissions statistics, which show an ave. of 67g CO2 per passenger/km.
|Total Kilometres||18,832m km|
|Total CO2 Emissions||1,267 kt|
|CO2 Per Pax/km||67g|
With the highest passenger load factor (96%) and one of the youngest fleets (ave. of 6 years), Ryanair delivers the lowest CO2 per passenger/km in the EU airline industry. Ryanair’s CO2 per pax/km has been cut from 82g to 67g over the last decade while other high fare competitors currently generate over 120g per pax/km.
Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said:
“Ryanair is Europe’s greenest/cleanest major airline with the youngest fleet and highest load factors. Our CO2 per passenger/km for July is 67g, half the rate of other flag carrier European airlines, and we are committed to reducing this by a further 10% to under 60g per pax/km by 2030.
As part of Ryanair’s environmental commitment, we are investing over US$20 billion in a fleet of 210 new Boeing 737 aircraft, which will carry 4% more passengers but reduce fuel burn by 16% and cut noise emissions by 40%.”
