Despite continuing efficiency improvements from the major aircraft manufacturers the expanding demand for global air travel has resulted in growing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Currently the aviation sector including US domestic and global international travel make approximately 1.6 percent of global anthropogenic GHG emissions per annum. North America accounts for nearly 40 percent of the world s GHG emissions from aviation fuel use. 78
Domestic air transport grew in China at 15.5 percent annually from 2001 to 2006. The rate of air travel globally increased at 3.7 percent per year over the same time. In the EU greenhouse gas emissions from aviation increased by 87% between 1990 and 2006. 74 However it must be compared with the flights increase only in UK between 1990 and 2006 terminal passengers increased from 100 000 thousands to 250 000 thousands. 75 according to AEA reports every year 750 million passengers travel by European airlines which also share 40% of merchandise value in and out of Europe. 76 Without even pressure from green activists targeting lower ticket prices generally airlines do what is possible to cut the fuel consumption (and gas emissions connected therewith). Further according to some reports it can be concluded that the last piston-powered aircraft were as fuel-efficient as the average jet in 2005. 77
