Airline passengers

As an airline passenger, you can use the Compensaid platform where it is not only possible to offset your emissions, but also reduce your flight's carbon footprint by investing into Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).

Business aviation customers

Jet Aviation's 'Book & Claim' enables business aviation owners and operators for whom SAF is not physically available for uplift to access SAF at will and thereby reduce their carbon footprint.

Through 'Book & Claim', unnecessary transportation costs of SAF can be avoided.

Private pilots

We pilots can directly influence our carbon emissions through power settings in flight or fueling alternative fuels in compliance with POH/AFM.

For remaining emissions, we provide pilots an easy way to calculate and offset their emissions when flying piston-powered aircraft.

Our Mission 

As our planet offers a variety of climate conditions, Diamondo Earthrounding illustrates that disparate locations favour different solutions to make aviation greener. With visits and reports from local initiatives, Diamondo Earthrounding aims to create further awareness for sustainable technologies and promote ways for investing into them voluntarily to accelerate aviation’s path to net-zero carbon emissions.


Diamondo Earthrounding operates on a non-profit basis and is made up of a team of 9 young aviation enthusiasts.

By supporting Diamondo Earthrounding, you help us in making sustainable air travel more affordable for you.

The ecological turnaround is possible - also within aviation - the technologies for it are available. It will not be a walk in the park, but if we implement it correctly, it offers a great opportunity for our economy and society. To do this, we have to implement the energy transition not only in Switzerland, but also on the basis of international cooperation.
