In addition to participating in SAF program, Hong Ngoc Ha Travel is taking the following steps towards environmental sustainability:

– Tree Planting Initiative: We are committed to planting a tree for every business trip booked through our agency. This initiative not only offsets carbon emissions but also promotes biodiversity and ecosystem health.

– Reduced Office Footprint: We are constantly evaluating ways to reduce our office’s environmental impact. This includes transitioning to energy-efficient appliances, implementing paperless practices, and adopting eco-friendly cleaning products.

– Sustainable Partner Selection: When working with travel partners, we prioritize those who share our commitment to sustainability. This ensures a holistic approach to reducing the environmental impact of our clients’ trips.

Aligning with a Shared Vision

"We are thrilled to welcome Hong Ngoc Ha Travel as a partner in our SAF program," said by Mrs. Femke Kroese, General Manager Southeast Asia & Oceania. "Their commitment to comprehensive sustainability practices sets a strong example for the travel industry."

The SAF program offers a customizable approach, catering to the specific sustainability goals of each participating company. Based on Hong Ngoc Ha Travel’s expected travel volume, their contribution will be directed towards the purchase of SAF within the agreed-upon timeframe.

With this pioneering agreement, Hong Ngoc Ha Travel and Air France-KLM are demonstrating a shared commitment to a more sustainable future for air travel. Hong Ngoc Ha Travel’s additional sustainability efforts further solidify their position as a leader in responsible travel practices.
