Calculate your flying impact - Finnair flights 2018

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

The calculator is based on actual per passenger-kilometer data of Finnair (2018). The calculator takes into account the flight distance, the share of cargo and calculates the geenhouse gas emissons for the whole life cycle. Finnair gives only the direct CO2 emissions from burning jet fuel.

In 2018, every second 138 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, one-way flight

 Number of persons traveling in your group:

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

Liters of jet fuel consumed by the group/family, one-way flight

Kilograms of carbon dioxide-equivalents (whole life cyle) released to atmosphere by the group/family, one-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.

Kilograms of carbon dioxide released to atmosphere from jet fuel burning by the group/family, one-way flight

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
