Café Scientifique - Turbulent times ahead for air travel?

Discover how climate change could threaten the future of air travel.


Scientists are now discovering that climate change and air travel could be having huge impacts on each other.

Air travel emissions contribute to climate change, but in return rising sea levels threaten coastal airports and extreme weather causes flight delays. Warmer air makes take-off more difficult, flights are more likely to run into clear-air turbulence and a changing jet stream could cost millions in fuel as transatlantic flights are slowed.

Come along to discover more about how climate change might affect your future flights

This Café Scientifique event is friendly and open to all, no prior knowledge required. Bring a curious mind and put your questions to the expert. Free entry, no registration required.
