De-incentivise air transport
People who travel frequently for non-essential reasons should be taxed increasingly heavily with each additional air trip that they take each year.
The carbon impact of air transport should be flagged up when people purchase a ticket, and offsetting stepped up.
People willing to travel by rail for their professional movements should see their additional time and expense compensated (e.g. price difference reimbursed, extra annual leave allowance).
Why the contribution is important
This matters because air transport needs to be de-normalised owing to its high emission levels.
