Greenpeace daagt EU uit korte vluchten te verbieden

October 27, 2021 - Environmental group Greenpeace has called on the European Union to ban short flights on routes where a train journey under six hours is available – trains emit 9-13 times less CO2-equivalent than a plane on the same route.

More than a third of the 150 busiest short-haul routes within the EU have a viable rail alternative with journey times that meet the test, including popular hops like Paris-Amsterdam, Madrid-Barcelona and Munich-Berlin, according to research published Wednesday, just days ahead of the COP26 climate summit, Bloomberg said.
