Emission Factor

Flight outside UK - with RF effect

0.1836kgCO2e/passenger-km

Emission factor summary

Emission intensity of an international flight (to/from non-UK countries) for an average passenger including fuel combustion and radiative forcing (RF) effect reflecting impact of contrails and high-altitude release of GHGs but not upstream fuel emissions. 8% distance uplift applied for indirect nature of flights.
