Air transport is a highly efficient user of resources and infrastructure
Aviation boasts high occupancy rates of 65 to 70% – which is more than double those of road and rail transportation
Air transport entirely covers its infrastructure costs. Unlike road and rail, it is a net contributor to national
treasuries through taxation. Modern aircraft achieve fuel efficiencies of 3.5 litres per 100 passenger-km or 67 passenger-miles per US gallon. The
next generation aircraft (A380 & B787) are targeting an efficiency of less than 3 litres per 100 passenger-km or 78 passenger-miles per US gallons which exceeds the efficiency of any modern compact car on the market.
