Quotes

Just take a seat. You're not buying real estate.
- Flight attendant on Southwest

Airports are un-places; a place you only visit to leave it again.
- Marcus Bauer, flughafen-leer-steril

'Reduce the number of flights you take to as small an amount as possible, and if you do ever fly, stay somewhere where your visit will be contributing positively to the wellbeing of local people and their environment'. I'm just struggling to fit it on a banner.
- Jeremy Smith, Sustainable travel - We need to talk about... flying

Carbon offsetting organisations

atmosfair - facebook - twitter
Atmosfair is a German carbon offsetting company. It produces the Airline Index - Whereas car drivers can since long inform themselves thoroughly about the CO2 emissions of a car before purchase, air passengers are left in the dark when it comes to choosing an airline for a flight. The airline index sheds light upon this lack of information. In the index, every airline receives in between 0 and 100 efficiency points, differentiated between short-, medium and long haul flights. This enables passengers to compare airlines offering a flight to the desired destination and to choose the airline which produces the least CO2 emissions.
