Poll: Should private jets be completely banned?

The Green Party is calling for it in its manifesto for the European elections.

THE GREEN PARTY launched its manifesto for the European elections today.

One of the most eye-catching policies is that if elected, Green MEPs will seek a full ban on private jets in Europe. 

While it doesn’t expand on this in the manifesto, proponents of a ban usually point to how private jets have unnecessarily high greenhouse gas emissions, and are between five and 14 times more polluting per passenger than commerical flights. 

Supporters of private jets argue that people who can afford it can choose to spend their money how they want. 

So today we’re asking: Should private jets be completely banned? 

Poll Results:

Yes  (5405)
No  (5323)
