Emission Factor

Domestic air freight - with RF effect

0.5743kgCO2e/tonne-km

Emission factor summary

Emission intensity WTT of domestic freight flight (within UK) including emissions from radiative forcing (RF) effect reflecting impact of contrails and high-altitude release of GHGs. WTT conversion factors for delivery vehicles & freighting goods should be used to report the upstream Scope 3 emissions associated with extraction/refining and transportation of the raw fuels before they are used to power the transport mode. While the source does not mention it explicitly it is inferred from the methodology that 8% distance uplift is applied for the indirect nature of flights.
