LONDON - Electric planes will be used for domestic flights by 2030 under government ambitions for flying to “go green”.

The Daily Telegraph said passengers will be told the carbon footprint of their flight as they book and 10% sustainable aviation fuel, which can be made from green waste or used cooking oil, will be used.

Ministers said the plan would deliver “guilt-free flying” but the Transport & Environment campaign group said the plan could lead to a dependence on unsustainable sources such as crops grown on land that could be used for food.
