In the year 2100, the world's population will be flying nine times as many kilometres as in 2015 and the average travel distance for all tourist journeys is set to double over the same period.

This is according to Paul Peeters, who will be awarded his PhD for his thesis on this subject at TU Delft on Wednesday 15 November.
