Model Answer 1:
Increased in flights has brought a significant disadvantages in the earth's ecosystem. Although some people believe that mode of transport should be prohibited in the society, it can be argued that there are considerable benefits of retaining the number of flights.
Primarily, there are limited numbers of transportation to travel in overseas destinations, and one of which is airplane. In the past primitive people travelled through ships or boats, yet it had taken them for long time to reach other nations. It is widely believe that travelling at wind is the expeditious means of reaching different countries at a desired time, and through airplanes time will not be a problem for those people who have business meeting and personal appointments. Furthermore, it is often said that because of convenience in transportation, it is most likely that globalization will be established in the entire countries. For instance, some foreign investors can launch their business in country that has cheap labor and market goods, thus it will develop the nexus of trade and industry.
In addition, if air transport is banned some countries, it would be a hindrance for those people to experience the leisure in other countries with rewarding amenities. To illustrate, there are many people who want to experience the luxury in abroad, and it would cost them too much time if they opt in a sea based journey.
Admittedly, air based travel has become a culprit towards widespread of much fumes which contributes to global warming, yet there are justifications that believe that there are also other sources of pollution, such as CFC producing appliances, fossil fuel reliant vehicles and methods of waste disposal. Thus, airplane should not be blame for the deterioration of environment.
In conclusion, I firmly believe that airplane travel should not be banned because it has several advantages and opportunities intended for people.
