Air traffic is an important part of our mobility with an increasing rate in transport volume of around 5% per year. Air traffic also contributes to anthropogenic warming by around 5%. Here we present a climate impact assessment tool AirClim and give an overview on the recent technology assessments. Finally, we present a best practice for a robust climate impact assessment, which combines a comprehensive four-layer approach to model the air traffic system with AirClim and includes aspects of atmospheric uncertainties, sensitivities, and verification procedures.
