Airlines want to remove ‘air borders’
With flights well and truly back in full swing after the pandemic, airlines are revisiting a plan to remove ‘air borders’ in Europe.
Europe has one of the world’s busiest airspaces, with around 30,000 flights each day, which takes thousands of traffic controllers to manage.
Airlines want to make air travel across Europe more efficient and economical by removing ‘air borders’. Simpler borders in the sky could shorten the average flight by 49km and cut 10% (50 million tonnes) of the aviation industry’s CO2 emissions.
This plan is yet to be confirmed, but it has been called for by IAG (owner of Ryanair, Easyjet, British Airways, and more).
Race Across the World set to boost UK tourism to Canada
Series three of the BBC’s popular travel show, Race Across the World, challenges five couples to travel across Canada without flying and on a tight budget.
The popular reality show, where contestants compete to win £20,000, shines a light on all that’s great about Canada in its latest season. The incredible scenery, including some away from the tourist hotspots, and the generosity of the locals make it a compelling travel destination.
Arrivals into Canada were down by 40% in 2022 compared to 2019, but bookings seem to have been giving a boost thanks to the success of Race Across the World.
