The Origin Of The Short-Haul Flights Ban In Europe

The aviation industry is one of the top sources of greenhouse gas emissions in Europe, growing by 29% na 2019. While governments tried to fight these numbers, the reality is that less than 7% of passenger transport is operated by trains. This is a surprising figure since one-third of the busiest short-haul flights have trains under 6 awa.

Ya mere, Greenpeace joined forces with prominent European governments to fight climate change. Recent research by Greenpeace commissioned presents the following outstanding numbers: 73 nke 250 busiest short-haul flights in Europe, in countries like Switzerland, and the UK, have train alternatives under six hours, na 41 have direct night train alternatives.

How Rail Ousted Short Haul Flights


Europeans Supporting A Ban On Short-Haul Flights

The short-haul flight ban is a massive change in European regional and international transportation. While most Europeans travel by train between countries and use intercity trains, tourists on euro trips might find train traveling challenging. Otú o sina dị, train travel is about to become the primary way of traveling in Europe, and the locals are all for it.

A recent European Investment Bank survey shows that 62% nke ndị Europe na-akwado mmachibido iwu ụgbọ elu dị mkpụmkpụ. The majority of people in Germany (63%), France, na Netherlands (65%) prefer night trains. The challenge European rail companies are facing is providing ụgbọ oloko ụra and all the necessities that make a good night’s sleep possible while traveling. The EU is so supportive of this act, that anyone can now access Greenpeace’s mmekọrịta map nke Europe and add the train routes they would like to see created or improved.

Cross-Border Travel: Rail Or Short-Haul Flights

Everyone has a story about that time an hour’s trip turned into a 48-hour nightmare. While passengers are more accustomed to traveling by plane, cross-border travel by train is by far more accessible, greener, and a considerable time and money saver. Na mgbakwunye, most rail passengers are unaware of the fact that high-speed trains, like the French TGV, bụ 40 minutes faster and cheaper than a plane.

Dị ka ọmụmaatụ, the German ICE rail can take you from Brussels to Cologne in less than 5 awa. Na mgbakwunye, you can add a stop in Paris on the way to Cologne, again via a high-speed train. Na ntụle, if you travel by plane, requires additional time to collect baggage, and the risk of airport and flight delays, whereas trains are punctual across Europe. N'ihi ya, cross-border rail traveling is ideal in Europe.

The Future Of Short-Haul Flights In Europe

While France is the pioneer, ousting short-haul flights in 3 ụzọ gasị, Austria has ousted Salzburg to Vienna flight route. Germany is still considering the move, like Norway and Poland. The future of short-haul flights is still unknown, but with Generation Z preferring green travel, cultural experiences, and exploring local communities, alternative train travel could provide for all these needs.

Ọzọkwa, exploring the not-yet-taken train routes might promote tourism in less-popular destinations in Europe. This will not only reduce airport traffic, and chaos but will also reduce over-tourism in popular places in Europe.
