This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Andrew Crow to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Inland Revenue Department,

It has been shown that Air travel is a large contribution to global climate change.

I am keen to get measurements or numbers to show what government is doing about this.

Under OIA I request:

1. Total number of airline tickets purchased in 18/19 financial year.

2. Breakdown by domestic vs international.

3. Any internal plans to reduce airline travel.

4. Job titles of the top 5 travellers.

5. Any other information that would help the public understand the departments use of airline travel.

N.B ; this request is being sent to a number of government departments.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Crow

Good afternoon

 

Thank you for your Official Information Act (OIA) request for information
on air travel.

 

Could you please clarify the following:

o For question 1, could you please confirm whether your definition of
‘tickets’ relates to individual legs of a trip or for the trip as a
whole. E.g. a return trip could have at least 2 tickets, and any
connecting flights will be counted as an additional ticket; or a
‘ticket’ could refer to the whole trip including connections.
o For question 4, please confirm your definition of ‘top 5 travellers’,
and whether this relates to the number of ‘tickets’ (as determined by
your definition above).

 

Please note that, in accordance with section 15(1AA) of the OIA, the
timeframe for making a decision on your request will reset to 20 working
days from the day after you provide clarification.

 

 

Kind regards

Government & Executive Services
