Brussels Airlines and Tomorrowland invest in more sustainable transport

For the 11th time, Brussels Airlines will bring partygoers from all over the world to Belgium to Tomorrowland. For the edition of 2024, all sold plane tickets in the Global Journey packages on Brussels Airlines will be Green Fares. This is a specific fare of Brussels Airlines and all Lufthansa Group Airlines where passengers can purchase 20% Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) and contribute for 80% to high-quality, Belgian and local climate compensation projects. On the special party flights, both partners even take it a step further. In addition to the Green Fare, Brussels Airlines and Tomorrowland contribute to the other 80% SAF. Lufthansa Group will purchase the equivalent of SAF for the fuel necessary for these party flights.
