Fly Greener

Is the aircraft type taken into account when calculating my contribution, given that some aircraft are more fuel efficient than others?

Fuel consumption per passenger per kilometre is calculated according to the operating data of all aircraft in the Cathay Pacific fleets. Taking aircraft types on individual flights into account would significantly complicate the calculation. Also, for operational reasons we may not use the originally assigned aircraft on particular routes.
