Following the European Green Deal, transport- related emissions must be reduced by 90% in 2050. While aviation contributes to a significant share of these emissions, the substitution of flights for rail travel is often considered to achieve a reduction in emissions of greenhouse gasses. Mostly, travelers consider this option when the full trip...
