Air Travel

Rich Seager made this Official Information request to Eugenie Sage

The request was partially successful.

From: Rich Seager

Dear Eugenie Sage,

I’m sure that as a Green Minister that you realize that per trip, flying is one of the most efficient ways that a person can commit to increasing their own CO2 emissions. For example one trip from Auckland or Wellington to London or New York is likely to contribute anything up to 10 tonnes (or more?) per person of equivalent CO2 emissions, for example see;

https://www.newscientist.com/article/220...

In some instances just one trip may be more than the remainder of a person's total non air travel annual CO2 (and other greenhouse) emissions.

With that in mind I request from you the total (nautical) miles/kilometres that you flew in the Calendar year 2018 for;

* Total Domestic nautical miles or kilometres reclaimable travel as an MP & total one way trips
* Total Domestic nautical miles or kilometres for private travel & total one way trips

* Total International nautical miles or kilometres reclaimable travel as an MP & total one way trips
*Total International nautical miles or kilometres for private travel & total one way trips

Please outline whether travel was in economy, business or first class.

I don't expect you to be exact, you don't have to ask the airlines for this information. I'm happy if you use an air miles/kilometres calculator for this, or even if you detail the trips without adding up the actual miles/kilometres.

I only want your own air miles/kilometres. I'm not interested in others who may have been traveling with you.

Yours faithfully,

Rich Seager

Dear Eugenie Sage,

just to be clear, my meaning of 'one way trips' would classify a return trip as two 'one way trips'.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Eugenie Sage,

the link in my OIA request is to the wrong article. Here is the correct link to a newscientist article about planes, not one about dogs.
