The average distance flown per passenger in Europe today is 800km.
The same figure 5 years ago was 1000km.

There are 3 times more passengers in Europe now as in the past.

800km x 3 = 2400km (Now)
1000km x 1 = 1000km (5 years ago)

140% increase from 1000km to 2400km.

0.3m x 1000 = 300,000m total km 5yrs ago
0.9m x 800( 1000 less 20percent) = 720,000m today
difference = 420,000m.
420,000/300,000 =1.4
1.4 expressed as percentage = 140
