From next month, any journey that can be done in under 6 hours by train means that a train must be taken. 

The move is part of the government’s plan to cut carbon emissions. 

Also, staff will have to fly economy for all flights except long-haul of more than 9 hours. Just long enough to mean Zurich to Washington DC won’t be covered. That takes 8 and a half hours.
