The Climate Action Network has evaluated potential benefits for the abolition of airlines in France, in favor of train trips for less than four hours. Verdict: In addition to significantly reduce CO2 emissions, such a measure could improve the comfort of the traveler, without necessarily costing it more.
The examination of the climate and resilience law is in full swing in the Senate. While the first title "consume has just been adopted (with amendments), the debates continue and should soon process Article 36 of the" Move "component.

but at the origin, the idea of deleting the Interior flights in the hexagon had been formulated by the Citizen Climate Convention. More ambitious, it proposed to delete all airlines for which an alternative journey of less than four hours exists.
Review downward at the end Voting in the National Assembly last April, the initial measure of the Citizen Convention is however realistic and easily applicable, considers a study of the Climate Action Network (RAC), published on Wednesday 16 June and carried out with the Egis design office.

Travel time by train has been estimated relatively "equivalent" or even "more advantageous" than the aircraft for a "door-to-door" trip on feasible links in less than three hours, and "lesser" or " Very close to that of the plane "for longer durations.
The cost of a train ticket vs an airline ticket has been the hardest to estimate, due to large price variations (time and booking period, ticket category, traveler's profile, etc.).
