International short-haul flight economy - with RF effect

0.1829kgCO2e/passenger-km

Emission factor summary

Emission intensity of short-haul (<3700) international economy class flights to/from the UK 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.
