Airlines and environment: Silverjet inspires SAS on carbon emission offsetting programme

SAS Scandinavian Airlines is offering passengers the opportunity "to offset carbon dioxide emissions from air travel by paying [voluntary] compensation" via its website. Compensation fees are not set but the airline noted that a typical Scandinavia-Europe roundtrip would cost €4.50 ($5.93) for the passenger to offset his share of emissions generated.
