Denmark’s domestic air travel to be carbon neutral by 2030

Denmark plans on voting in a Carbon tax to set a price for carbon emissions against the backdrop of rising global temperatures.

The Danish PM announced in his New Year’s address that by 2025 Denmark would have the opportunity to fly green on a domestic route. And by 2030 all domestic air travel will be carbon neutral.

The PM acknowledges that the task is difficult but not impossible and didn’t specify how air travel was to be carbon neutral.

It is expected this could include a combination of carbon credits and possibly electric-powered aviation for shorter domestic excursions.

Copenhagen plans to become the world’s first carbon-neutral capital city by 2025, with Copenhagen airport becoming emission-free by 2030, and transportation to and from the airport becoming emission-free by 2030.

Elsewhere in Europe, Air France has announced plans to reduce domestic short-haul capacity on some routes, and several airlines have reduced domestic flights.

Sweden has committed to making domestic flights ‘fossil-free’ by 2030. It implemented differentiated landing taxes at major airports starting January 1, 2022, based on the aircraft’s climate impact.
