Flying domestically in France could soon be a thing of the past as the country moves to ban short-haul domestic flights

2.5 Hours or less? Ride the rails.

The EU has approved the proposal to abolish flights between French cities that are less than 2.5 hours by train in an effort to combat climate change. France is planning on setting new rules on private jets, as well. 

France’s transport minister Clément Beaune called it a “major step forward in the policy of reducing greenhouse gas emissions.” The changes echo President Macron’s moves to combat overall energy use in France.

When will things change?

The minister and state are moving quickly to roll out the changes and want to put them into practice as soon as possible. 

France has already been given the green light to ban environmentally-damaging domestic flights which are routes between Paris Orly and Nantes, Lyon, and Bordeaux.
