First, the distances between the selected airports are estimated using the larger circle approach. The appropriate emissions factor for the kind of flight (UK domestic, short haul, or long haul) and the class of seat taken is then multiplied by this (e.g. economy class, business class etc.). Distance uplift to compensate for planes not flying the most direct route, such as flying around foreign airspace, stacking, and so on, is one of the emissions considerations.
