* The difference of 88% is calculated in an advisory module from Milieu Centraal, an independent organization of Rijkswaterstaat that provides practical information about the environment. Based on a distance of 1.364 kilometers and 950 people, Milieu Centraal indicates that the emissions per person by train are 71kg CO2, while aircraft uses 612 kg CO2.
