Calculate your flying impact - ecological impact OF TRAVELING AND YOUR HOLIDAY




Give the flying distance and the number of persons traveling to the yellow boxes below. Then click the "Calculate" box.

One-way flying distance in kilometers (Google maps distance calculator, other distance calculators):

 
Liters of crude oil consumed by one person, two-way flight

 Number of persons traveling in your group:

 
Liters of crude oil consumed by the group/family, two-way flight

 
Liters of carbon dioxide released to atmosphere by the group/family, two-way flight

 
Tonnes of carbon dioxide released to atmosphere by the group/family, two-way flight

 
Euros would cost to buy carbon emission allowances (if aviation was not excluded in the EU carbon dioxide trading scheme).

 
Euros more the flight would cost, if aviation fuel had the same tax as road transport fuel in EU. To feel more "carbon neutral", you can give the above sum to for example Friends of the Earth.

 
Days, equivalent to idling a family car nonstop (motor running - car not moving)

 
Equivalent to driving with a family car, kilometers

 
Hectares cropland needed for equivalent biofuel production (wheat ethanol)

 
Number of loaves of bread the cropland could produce

 
m2 clear-cut forest area would be needed to produce equal amount of fuel ethanol from wood

 
m3 firewood in woodpile that forest area would give
