Fly Carbon Neutral terms and conditions

1. Fly Carbon Neutral is a voluntary contribution.

2. Your payment will include a Goods and Services Tax (GST) component which will not be allocated towards carbon offset projects.

3. If you book a Qantas Points Plus Pay or Classic Reward Flight you can offset your carbon emissions with Qantas Points. The points required will vary. There is no GST component if you offset using Qantas Points.

4. Your points or payment and the applicable GST will not be refunded under any circumstances, including in the event your flight is cancelled or where you do not travel on your scheduled flight.

5. Qantas will provide you with a tax invoice by e-mail when you make your contribution. We will not provide duplicate tax invoices. If you use points to offset your carbon emissions you will not receive a receipt by e-mail. The transaction will be recorded in your monthly Qantas Frequent Flyer statement.

6. The Qantas carbon offset program has been certified under the Australian Government's National Carbon Offset Standard.

7. If your itinerary includes a Jetstar flight, you cannot offset your flights during the booking process. To offset an itinerary that includes both a Qantas and a Jetstar flight, visit the Qantas Future Planet website. 

8. The calculation method provides an emission estimate only and should not be relied upon as an accurate record of the actual emissions. We accept no liability if the calculation of greenhouse gas emissions relating to your seat on your flight is incorrect or inaccurately reflects actual greenhouse gas emissions attributable to your seat on your flight.

9. Infants are not included in the calculation of flight emissions for online bookings. An infant is a passenger aged up to 23 months inclusive. Children are included in the calculation at the same rate as adults.

10. Your contribution will be used to acquire 'Eligible Offset Units' as defined under the Australian Government's National Carbon Offset Standard. We may at our absolute discretion acquire 'Eligible Offset Units' from certified greenhouse gas abatement suppliers of our choice. You are not able to direct us to allocate the funds to any particular greenhouse gas abatement projects or suppliers.

11. While Qantas has taken reasonable care to ensure that the information provided by us on the Qantas and Jetstar websites relating to carbon offsetting is correct, all information may be subject to change at any time without notice. Qantas is not liable to you or anyone else if errors occur in the information on this website or if that information is not up-to-date.
