Qatar Airways operates one of the youngest and most fuel efficient fleets in the sky and strives to provide its customers with a sustainable and environmentally conscious travel experience. Due to the impact of COVID-19 on the demand for travel, the airline has discontinued its fleet of Airbus A380s because it is environmentally unacceptable to operate such a large four-engine aircraft in the current market. Qatar Airways recently launched a new program that allows passengers to voluntarily offset the carbon emissions associated with their trip at the time of booking.
