How does the IATA CO2 Connect calculator work?
IATA CO2 Connect provides users with CO2 emissions calculations based on a best practice industry methodology approved by the IATA Passenger Standards Conference (PSC). The calculator incorporates audited airline-specific fuel consumption data. It also considers airline-specific cargo weight, load factors, and cabin configurations.
The calculator uses actual fuel consumption data, covering 74 aircraft types which represents ~98% of the active global passenger fleet, and traffic data from 881 aircraft operators representing ~93% of global air travel.
How are CO2 emissions calculated
- Calculation of total CO2 emissions for a given flight
- Distribution of CO2 between passenger and cargo payload based on weight
- Allocation of CO2 between passengers considering expected occupancy and cabin classes
