Climate change activists spray a Cessna Citation business jet with orange paint at Sylt Airport, Germany

Environmental activists break into Sylt Airport in Germany and spray an orange color on a Cessna Citation corporate plane.

It appears that the aircraft operator will incur higher costs. On one of the Twitter accounts, a video of some of the activists painting an airplane with orange paint is shared. The engine is fortunate to be covered while they are painting it.

Why do environmental organizations oppose private jet operations?

In comparison to other modes of transportation, private planes are known to have higher carbon emissions per passenger. They contribute to climate change by consuming a lot of fuel and emitting greenhouse gases. Private jets represent enormous carbon footprints, which climate activists call for reducing in order to alleviate the effects of climate change.

Alternatives to private jet travel, according to activists, are more environmentally friendly. They support funding for public transportation, advancing high-speed rail systems, and urging organizations and people to select more environmentally friendly transportation options whenever feasible. Without taking into account the available alternatives, private jet travel is viewed as a luxury that exacerbates the climate catastrophe.

Some demonstrators also attended the EBACE Geneva Private jet display last month. They scaled the fence, entered the building, and locked the aircraft and themselves inside. It took more time and effort to remove the almost 40 climate activists who had been detected at the location.
