LONDON (Reuters) – British budget airline easyJet <EZJ.L> on Tuesday said it would become the world’s first major airline to operate net-zero carbon flights across its whole network by offsetting the emissions from flying.

The airline said that it would cost around 25 million pounds to offset the emissions in the next financial year, as it reported full-year results for the year ending Sept. 30 in line with previous guidance.
