Although the tour has been carefully routed and pre-planned to minimise air travel, some flying is unavoidable. The band will mostly fly on commercial flights, but there will inevitably be occasions when charter flights are required for band, crew and equipment.
For all flights, commercial and charter, we will pay a surcharge to use or supply Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), either for our own use or for others’. Our partner Neste will supply us with Sustainable Aviation Fuel produced 100% from waste and residues, such as used cooking oil from restaurants. When used unblended with fossil jet fuel, SAF helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions of air travel by up to 80% over the entire life cycle compared to the conventional fossil jet fuel that it replaces.
Wherever possible, we will use electric vehicles or biofuel for ground freight and transportation.
