Denmark’s PM: All domestic flights must be fossil fuel-free

In her New Year’s speech, Denmark’s Prime Minister, Mette Frederiksen, announced she wants to “make flying green”, with plans to make all domestic flights fossil fuel-free by as soon as 2030.

Mette Frederiksen acknowledged the solutions to reach this target are not yet in place and it will be difficult, but researchers and companies are working on solutions for this already.

The goal, if successful, will see a 70% cut in emissions by 2030, compared to 1990 levels.

“To travel is to live and therefore we fly,” said Frederiksen, announcing her plan. “When other countries in the world are too slow, then Denmark must take the lead and raise the bar even more,” she continued.

Neighbouring country Sweden has also announced their own plans to make domestic flights fossil fuel-free by 2030 and they are hoping to make international flights green by 2045; meanwhile the Swedish government has also introduced plans to increase the airport fees for high-polluting airplanes.
