Passengers can now offset the carbon footprint of their air travel while booking their flight. In co-operation with Klappir Green Solutions, Icelandair and Air Iceland Connect have determined the average flight emissions for each of their flight routes. Contributions made by passengers to carbon offset their flights will go entirely to the Iceland Carbon Fund, known as Kolvidur. Contributions will be used to cultivate forests in Iceland.

The Kolvidur fund was established by the Icelandic Forestry Association and the Icelandic Environment Association with the support of the Icelandic government. The objective of Kolvidur is to reduce the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere by increasing the carbon sequestration of forest ecosystems, binding the soil and reducing soil erosion.
