UK airline easyJet has become the first to fully commit to the Direct Air Carbon Capture and Storage (DACCS) program that was launched in July last year by Airbus. The airline has signed a contract with the OEM that commits it to offset carbon emissions through DACCS technology.

easyJet says that it has pre-purchased removal credits for 400.000 tonnes of carbon dioxide. The credits will last for four years between 2026 and 2029 and will be issued by 1PointFive, which is partnering with the program. The airline hasn’t disclosed how much it is investing in the technology.
