Frequently Asked Questions

Are all emissions associated with domestic air travel attributed to our municipality rather than spread across the state?

At this stage domestic air travel remains attributed to the municipality in which the aircraft take off and land (i.e. where the airport is located) and other municipalities with airports within their boundary if applicable. We are aware that this is a complicated issue, and based on the feedback we receive we will continue discussions to determine the best way to account for and present air travel within Snapshot profiles in future releases. But at the moment, until or unless there is a reasonable and GPC-compliant alternative approach to attributing airport emissions, the Snapshot approach is consistent with GPC. The table in the Snapshot reports provide a breakdown of travel emissions which should help councils highlight the contribution of air travel as opposed to on-road travel so a council can communicate that transport emissions might appear artificially high because of an airport.
