Indeed, the Labour-led Norwegian government is committed to carbon neutrality across all sectors of the economy by 2030. Aviation ...

Abstract

Air travel is forecast to grow globally at around 5% per annum over 30 years, in direct conflict with targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by between 60% and 80% by 2050. Many authors identify individual behavioral change, with consumers choosing fewer flights, as a contributor to reducing...

Abstract

Tourism has been critiqued as an environmentally destructive industry on account of the greenhouse gas emissions associated with tourist mobility. From a policy perspective, current and projected growth in aviation is fundamentally incompatible with radical emissions reduction and decarbonisation...

Growing acceptance and concern about anthropogenic climate change is beginning to influence tourists' travel practices, with a hardening of attitudes towards long-haul aviation now evident in a number of key European outbound tourism markets.

Holidaying is an important leisure pursuit and, for a growing minority, air travel is the default mode for holiday mobility.

Abstract

Forecast growth in global demand for air travel is incompatible with emissions reduction targets. Scholarly attention is urgently needed to address attitude and behaviour change that supports sector-wide emissions reduction.
