How Leeds Bradford Airport Can Be Catalyst For Green Aviation

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the Yorkshire Post.

The article was written by a geography student from Yorkshire, who is studying at Cambridge University.

He makes some interesting points.

  • Leeds Airport is not a good customer experience.
  • Manchester Airport will take passengers away from Leeds.
  • Leeds is the biggest financial centre in the UK outside London.
  • Leeds Airport should be improved to the highest environmental standards.
  • Aviation biofuels should be provided.
  • Short haul flights should be replaced by a train journey if possible.
  • By 2030, a lot of short haul flights will be replaced by electric aircraft.

I agree with a lot of what he says.

There will still be a need to fly and we must make it as environmentally-friendly as possible.

If we don’t find ways of making flying carbon-neutral, we’ll hurt the economy.
