Poll reveals public support for curbing the growth in air travel
A new MORI poll commissioned by the Airfields Environment Trust shows conclusively
that the public back action to slow the growth of air travel, and explicitly support
taxing flights to do so. Half of the respondents were given a preamble explaining
the climate change effect of aviation and support was stronger amongst this group,
but even those without the preamble supported policies to curb growth by a clear
majority. In other words, the public have got the message about aviation and climate
change, and they want the Government to take action.
