The impact that the growing demand for more flights has had on the environment is a major concern for many countries. Some people believe that one way to limit the number of people travelling by air is to increase tax on flights. To what extent do you think this could solve problem?

The advent of budget

in many countries, in the early 21st century, seems to have created more problems than it solved. While, the growing middle class is cheering the availability of low fare, and long distance transportation, green activists in these countries are raising alarm on the burden it has on the environment. Flights guzzle a huge amount of highly refined fuel and produce a heavy noise compared to other modes of logistics.

In addition
to it, growing economies like India need faster transport to provide food for its billion population. Due to

a lot of push back could be expected on any idea of hiking taxes.
Finally

would be to improve land based transportation like modern railways, or even
hyperloop
type solutions. While taxation works in the short term, it would not deter people from
