SHOULD UK domestic flights be banned to help protect the environment?
That’s the question many have been asking this week, after the Campaign for Better Transport (CBT) called for a ban on flights within the UK if an equivalent train journey is available, to help reduce emissions.
The CBT added that more should be done to make sure that train tickets are always a cheaper option than flying. It also says that anyone who flies regularly should have to pay more.
Paul Tuohy, the chief executive of CBT said: “Cheap domestic flights might seem a good deal when you buy them, but they are a climate disaster, generating seven times more harmful greenhouse emissions than the equivalent train journey.”
