Flights generate fall in CO₂ emissions across EX-YU


Flights across European airspace in 2020 generated a fall in CO₂ emissions that was largely in line with declining flight numbers, according to Eurocontrol. The largest falls in CO₂ emissions, of 70% or more, were seen in Montenegro (74.9%), Croatia (73.2%) and Slovenia (70.6%). In other former Yugoslav markets, emission levels were reduced 65.2% in Bosnia and Herzegovina, 62.5% in Macedonia and 51.3% in Serbia. Benelux countries saw relatively small CO₂ emission declines primarily due to a big increase in cargo flights, which compensated for the fall in passenger services. The CO₂ data for each country is based on flights departing from its airports, Eurocontrol states. The organisation’s CO₂ data does not cover Ukraine, Russia or Belarus. The latter two are not members of Eurocontrol.

    Well. This is just another metric on how much overall number of flights has decreased.
