Volume 495: debated on Wednesday 1 July 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport what recent estimate he has made of the volume of carbon dioxide emissions arising at each airport in the most recent period for which figures are available. (283255)

The Department for Transport published in January 2009 its assessment of the carbon dioxide emissions from each of the 31 UK airports included in the Department’s UK air passenger demand and CO2 forecasting framework. These airports accounted for 94 per cent. of total UK air traffic movements in 2005.

This assessment is reported for the year 2005 and can be found in Annex G, Table G10 of “UK Air Passenger Demand and CO2 Forecasts”:
