! Today many people state that the authorities have to lighten air trafﬁc by introducing new charges, because airports generate a lot of noise and damage environment. The reason is huge demand for cheap ﬂights, so there are too many people to use airline services. In my opinion, this idea is completely wrong, because of several reasons. ! To begin with, if there be less people, who can afford themselves to travel by air, then they will choose cars and other ground transport, what will cause a lot more pollution and trafﬁc jams on the roads. Just compare 100 people on one plane and 100 people on 100 cars. It goes without saying that second option is much more damaging for environment. ! Moreover, such soluton will cause dramatical fall in business activity, because people will not be able to control production performance, visit important meetings and so on. Some people will say that these are just minor set-backs, but in fact, we will face the catalyst of new world economic recession. ! Finally, I see reducing air trafﬁc as a slow-down of progress. If airlines and airports have less ﬁnancial resources then they will not be able to maintain their development teams. As a result, world will be one-step further from creating new ways of air travel. Following topic’s logic, we should start living in lairs and eat with the stick. ! In conclusion I want to say that services that enjoys great demand are essential for people and they became natural part of society’s infrastructure.
