An interesting report about holiday travel in the Netherlands: (in Dutch).

The Netherlands is a relatively wealthy country, and is fairly well connected to the European railway network. 86% of all holiday trips have the European subcontinent as destination.

Nevertheless, 43% of all holiday trips are taken by plane. 74% of all passenger miles. (1/n)


We should stop blaming boomers for everything: they're much less likely to go abroad period. And much less likely to fly.

Well-educated yuppies are the most likely to fly, they fly most frequently, and even though the top flyers only comprise 8% of the population, they make about 40% of the passenger miles. (2/3)

40% of the people traveling abroad describe themselves as 'environmentally conscious', but almost none of them have modified their travel plans or methods because of this. (3/3)
