The total distance of air travel used during 2007-08 to offset travel taken by Department for Children, Schools and Families was 1,790,103 km.
The proportion of travel is broken down as follows:
km (a) Domestic 477,167 (b) Short haul 289,996 (c) Long haul 1,022,939
(b) Short haul
(c) Long haul
The Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) and Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills (DIUS) were created as a result of the machinery of government changes in June 2007. The number of air miles used to calculate the DCSF payment for the 2007-08 also includes air travel for DIUS (former DfES staff only). To separate these data would involve disproportionate cost.
