Cutting the UK’s carbon emissions by 2050 is a pretty hefty task, there’s no doubt about it! But would you be willing to give up a city break or two to make it happen?
Here’s the suggestion: the more and further you fly, the higher the tax.
This comes after the UK Climate Assembly, a group of 108 people, voted on a set of recommendations for the UK government - and according to the report, 7% of the UK’s emissions come from air travel.
Personally, I’d like to see increased awareness around carbon offsetting, and the development of electric planes (feel free to disagree ).
Will introducing a frequent flyers tax put you off flying?
