France, Netherlands call for EU climate clampdown on private jets


Image of post in post detailed view

Netherlands,Austria, France and the Ireland have called on the European Union to toughen laws to curb the impact of private jet travel on the climate.
Schiphol said in April it will ban private jets and small business aviation, which the airport said causes 20 times more CO2 emissions than a commercial flight, while France this week banned certain short-haul commercial domestic flights on routes where sufficient train services are available.
Private jet flights in Europe increased by 64% in 2022, and emitted more than 5.3 million tonnes of CO2.
Airlines in Europe are set to face higher CO2 costs in the next few years under a reform of the EU carbon market.

        Private jets generally produce significantly more emissions per passenger than commercial flights.

              A person flying on a private plane emits 10 to 20 times as much carbon pollution as a commercial airline passenger,Thus restriction is needed more than before.

              Calling off private jet users is a legitimate cry for climate justice due to this industry's huge carbon footprint.They should be compelled to make a drastic switch to eco-friendly alternatives like train
