Environmental sustainability

We take sustainability very seriously. We want to minimise our impact on the world as much as possible, and we take this responsibility not only as a company, but individually as employees and people too.

As a long-haul holiday company, our biggest impact is from flying to our destinations. Therefore, carbon reduction is our top environmental priority. 80% of our flights are operated by our own airline Virgin Atlantic who are:

  • Investing in a new, more efficient fleet (~30% less carbon emissions per trip)
  • Improving operational procedures, like pilots flying more efficiently
  • Innovating on groundbreaking new sustainable aviation fuels
  • Actively supporting the new global UN-led Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA)

Check out for full details.

We also encourage our partner hotels to reduce their carbon emissions, as well their waste where they can. Our facilities team is also continuously working on a range of measures across our ground operations too, reducing product, waste and energy consumption for over a decade.

We report on our progress, including calculating our carbon footprint, in the annual Change is in the Air Sustainability Report with Virgin Atlantic. We know that our biggest impact as a holiday company comes from Scope 3 emissions – those created indirectly by the products and services we use. We’re always focused on working with our supply chain to improve in this area, and you can find out more here.
