To complement its Black Fliday flight deals, Hong Kong’s flag carrier has announced a “Green Friday” initiative, which will offset carbon emissions for all tickets purchased via its website between November 20–30, 2020 at no extra cost to customers. Cathay Pacific is pledging to double the usual monetary contribution for carbon offsets in this period, with the goal of making a positive impact on local communities in developing countries.

All contributions will directly fund two projects the airline supports as part of its FlyGreener program, which offset nearly 34,000 tonnes of carbon emissions last year. One of these is the Bodhu Chula Cookstoves project in Bangladesh, aimed at giving villagers efficient “friendly stoves” that are designed to reduce fuel consumption by about 50 percent. Each unit will be installed with a chimney to remove harmful pollutants from peoples’ homes. In neighboring India, Cathay Pacific is also involved in efforts to convert organic food waste into clean energy by distributing 15,000 biodigestors across the country to produce cooking gas, heat, and even electricity in an eco-friendly manner.

Cathay Pacific’s Black Friday offers will promise big savings not just for flights to its home base of Hong Kong, but also to Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Japan, and Australia in 2021, while the Two Together deal promises an additional discount off the second ticket booked in economy, premium economy, and business class, with Cathay doubling the amount of carbon it offsets for both passengers. Discounts will be applied to each ticket if three or more passengers are traveling together, and all will be eligible for a complimentary carbon offset.
