Ryanair Releases CO2 Emissions Statistics For May

Ryanair has released monthly CO2 emissions statistics for May which show an average of 66g CO2 per passenger/km.

Ryanair's current average CO2 per pax/km is 67g p.a., and the airline plans to reduce this figure to under 60g per pax/km by 2030.

"Environmental Commitment"

Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs stated, "Over the past decade, Ryanair’s CO2 per passenger/km has been cut by 18% from 82g to 67g, while competitors such as Lufthansa, British Airways and Air France-KLM currently generate over 120g per passenger/km.

"As part of Ryanair’s environmental commitment, we will invest over US$20 billion in a fleet of 210 new Boeing 737 'gamechanger' aircraft, which will carry 4% more passengers but reduce fuel burn by 16% and cut noise emissions by 40%."
