Is Sustainable Air Travel (Really) an Illusion?
All countries are now suffering from various climate irregularities which resulted in a major emergency – the climate emergency. In the UK, transportation is the No.1 source of greenhouse gas emissions and from all transport sources, aviation is responsible for 12% (ATAG, 2018). However, in present times, expecting people to just stop travelling is not exactly realistic; as travelling allows us to experience, understand and connect with each other better. Nevertheless, the clock is ticking, and governments are declaring climate emergencies, therefore creating a sustainable future for aviation and limiting its environmental impact becomes a shared responsibility.
