    Your carbon footprint

    • The carbon footprint of your travel is the amount of greenhouse gases you generate while getting from A to B. 
    • These are measured in grams of carbon dioxide equivalents per passenger kilometre. Or CO2eq per km.
    • This includes carbon dioxide as well as other greenhouse gases and also factors in the increased warming effects of aviation emissions at altitude.

    Tips for more sustainable air travel

    1

    Try to book direct flights whenever you can: it’s the take-offs and landings that create most of an airplane’s carbon emissions.

    2

    Travel in economy class, which maximises the number of passengers that each flight can carry.

    3

    Pack light so you can do your bit to reduce the total weight of the aircraft and therefore positively affect its fuel consumption.

    4

    Go paper-free and opt for digital tickets and boarding passes.

    5

    Avoid single use plastics by bringing your own water bottle and ear phones.
