UK airlines have missed all their climate change targets, except one. They have set over 50 targets since the year 2000. A climate campaign group said airlines failed to cut their carbon footprint. It said airlines set big targets, and then talk about them for a couple of years. The targets then disappear.
The airline industry creates seven per cent of the UK's greenhouse gases. The UK will not meet its goal to be net zero by 2050 unless the airlines help. The campaign group also wants frequent fliers to pay more. Only one airline, EasyJet, met a target. It cut the amount of fuel an airplane burns by three per cent.
