After a heated debate, the flagship measure of the climate bill was officially adopted by the National Assembly, at first reading on April 10: domestic flights which can be replaced by an alternative route taking less than 2h30 by train will be deleted in France. Which Air France routes will be affected?

Concretely, this means that the lines connecting Paris Orly to the cities of Nantes, Bordeaux and Lyon, which last between 1h10 and 1h50, will soon disappear. There is, however, an exception for correspondence. So, if you have to make a flight Marseille-Montreal, for example, which is not direct, you can make your stopover at Paris-CDG.

UFC-Que Choisir, however, calls for the threshold for prohibition of domestic flights to be increased to 4 hours when an alternative exists by train. According to her, the 2h30 provided for by the Climate bill will result in a “derisory environmental gain”. The 2h30 threshold will lead to the elimination of only five domestic lines (Paris-Bordeaux, Paris-Lyon, Paris-Nantes, Paris-Rennes and Lyon-Marseille) representing a total of 12% of passenger traffic (around 2.7 million travelers) and 3.5% of CO2 emissions from aviation in France. If this threshold were set at four hours, 18 domestic airlines in France would be affected, including the very busy Paris-Marseille, resulting in a 30% drop in domestic passenger traffic (6.9 million travelers) and 12 , 5% of air carbon emissions.
