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.

The calculator uses the average jet fuel consumption of 4.77 liters per 100 passenger-kilometers in world air traffic in 2016. Thus the calculated values are probably a little too high for long-distance flights and a little too low for short-distance flights. The real-life emissions also depend on the load factor and type and age of the passenger plane.

In 2018, every second 132 passengers step into a passenger plane and fly in average a distance of 1938 kilometers.

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

 
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-equivalents (whole life cyle) 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.

 
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
