A ban on short-haul domestic flights has come into effect in France, in a bid to curb carbon emissions.

The new rule means flights between cities where the same journey could be made by train within two-and-a-half hours are prohibited.

The effectively rules out certain air routes between the capital, Paris, and cities such as Bordeaux, Lyon, Nantes, although connecting flights aren’t affected by the law.
