The transport NGO, ICCT (the International Council on Clean Transportation) in the US has updated a study of commercial aviation carbon emissions. Their data, looking at the years 2013, 2018 and 2019, shows that global passenger operations are becoming slightly more fuel-efficient, in terms of carbon intensity per passenger, this is not happening fast enough to offset air traffic growth. Commercial traffic has increased nearly four times faster than fuel efficiency improvement. Overall the CO2 emissions from all commercial flights (passenger and freight) rose by 29% between 2013 and 2019 (to 918 million metric tons in 2019). Passenger aircraft CO2 emissions rose 33% between 2013 and 2019. The ICCT looked at the emissions in premium (First and Business class) seating, and found it produced 19% of CO2 from commercial aviation in 2019.  A passenger in premium class emitted 2.6 to 4.3 times more CO2 per kilometre than a passenger in economy class, depending on aircraft class. The CO2 per passenger is even higher in private jets.   85% of emissions derive from passenger transport, and 15% is from freight.  The aviation of the US, the EU and China make up 55% of the global aviation CO2 emissions.  .Tweet   CO2 emissions from commercial aviation: 2013, 2018, and 2019 Published: 8th October 2020.  ●By   Brandon Graver, Ph.D., Dan Rutherford, Ph.D., and Sola Zheng  CO2-commerc
