The climate is changing - not just where we live at ground level, but also where we fly at 35,000ʹ. Extreme weather may cause flight disruptions and delays. Clear-air turbulence is expected to become stronger and more frequent. Flights may take longer because of changes to the jet stream. Come along to find out how climate change could affect your future flights.
