Ban Private Jets.
End Luxury Emissions.
Private jet flights are sky-high and reaching records. While many of us struggle with putting food on the table and paying our bills, the global fleet of private jets has more than doubled in the last two decades.
Private jets and other luxury emissions are not currently regulated as such and largely excluded from key legislation that is supposed to tackle greenhouse gas emissions.
The scandal doesn’t stop at private jets: business flights, frequent flyer programmes, and other “bullshit flights” are also the problem. Only 1% of people are responsible for half of all emissions from flying.
Let’s put an end to excessive flights and:
- ban private jets
- ban air miles
- tax frequent flyers.
We are a growing movement
Together with 90 organisations, we’re calling on European transport ministers to end these luxury emissions.
