France moves to ban short-haul domestic flights

Published on April 13, 2021 by

French MPs have moved to ban short, internal flights in a bid to reduce carbon emissions.

Lawmakers voted in favour of a bill to end routes where the same journey could be made by train in under two-and-a-half hours.

This could affect travel between Paris and cities such as Nantes, Lyon and Bordeaux. However, connecting flights would not be affected.

The planned measures will face a further vote in the Senate before becoming law.
