The new “Bewusst Reisen” magazine provides information about the DER Touristik Foundation and the charitable organisation’s new projects as well as ways to travel more gently. The fourth issue of the online magazine also featueres the MARRS mission to save the coral reefs in the Maldives. Another focus of the magalogue is how to reduce your own CO2 footprint when travelling.
Those who want to discover other countries in an environmentally conscious way and together with like-minded people will be interested in the small group tours presented here. The small group tours to Portugal and Madeira, Bulgaria, Menorca and Andalusia as well as the individual self-drive tours through Ireland have been developed with a special focus on sustainability. They meet high social and ecological standards – from the accommodation to the excursions and flights. Specifically, DER Touristik uses SAF (Sustainable Aviation Fuel) purchased from the Lufthansa Group to improve the carbon footprint of selected products. For example, a 20 per cent share of SAF will be fed into the flight system for the Lufthansa flights of the round trips presented in the 2024 Magalogue. This meets the individual flight-related CO₂ emissions of the passenger. As part of a strategic partnership, DER Touristik was the first major tour operator to acquire corresponding quantities of SAF from the Lufthansa Group in July 2023. With the acquired SAF, DER Touristik offers its guests air travel with SAF use at no extra charge.
