IATA’s Tyler: ETS delay ‘puts pressure’ on airlines to find common voice

ATWonline.com by Aaron Karp | November 15, 2012

The European Commission’s (EC) decision to suspend its Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) for flights into and out of the European Union (EU) for one year shifts the burden to the air transport industry to find commonality on controlling aircraft carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, IATA DG and CEO Tony Tyler said.

Speaking Thursday at the opening session of the Latin American and Caribbean Air Transport Assn. (ALTA) Airline Leaders Forum in Panama City, Tyler reiterated the EC’s move “creates space at the ICAO level” to forge a “political agreement” on how to control aviation emissions globally (ATW Daily News, Nov. 12). Airlines that found unity in opposition to the ETS must now come together to push ICAO toward a sensible agreement, he added.

“The [ETS delay] decision … puts pressure on the [airline] industry,” he said. “Now we must find a common position … No solution is going to satisfy every airline 100%. We will need to find the fairest possible compromise, remaining consistent at global and regional levels. If we fail or lose unity, that opens the door for individual governments to pick us apart and impose solutions that will, quite probably, be more expensive and less workable for our complex global industry.”
