Emission Factor

Domestic flight - with RF effect

0.2459kgCO2e/passenger-km

Emission factor summary

Emission intensity of domestic flight (within UK) for 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.
