Sample Conclusion

*QN: Air travel should be discouraged, not promoted. To what extent do you agree?

With technological breakthroughs and the increased capacity to fly more people at increasingly cheaper prices, the popularity of air travel will only continue to grow. [closing line] With all these in mind, it is hardly sensible or even possible for us to discourage the continued expansion of this exciting and beneficial industry.
