Travelling by plane is environmentally the worst mode of transport, not in the least because a plane is so fast and huge amount of kilometres can be bridged in a single “travel session”. A holiday flight from, say, London, Amsterdam or Berlin to Malaga is ca. 4600 km in total or 1150 kg CO2 per passenger. The average daily commute of 34 km by car (Netherlands) in contrast is 5.8 kg. Commuting over an entire year causes only slightly more emissions than that inner-European holiday flight. If autonomous driving would finally take off, further reductions per passenger would be possible. Flights to the US, Egypt, Thailand, not to mention Australia, transcend that calculation by a multiple. Commuting can and increasingly is done with an e-vehicle.
