• Rail alternatives

    Transport committee MEPs have voted for a set of rules that will require airline reservation systems to show both CO2 emissions and available alternative train journeys.

    In a debate last month on updating the existing code of conduct on computerised airline systems, they said any journey of less than 90 minutes must show alternative options by train, including connections, if they are ranking two or more flight options. They also voted for an amendment requiring computerised systems to show ‘easily understandable’ information about the flight’s CO2 emissions and fuel consumption.
