Debate on aviation activities in the EU ETS


On 21 September, the European Parliament had a debate on aviation activities in the EU ETS to discuss an oral question tabled by the rapporteurs on the aviation/ETS of the main political parties in the EP. There were strong calls for the EU to keep its position in ICAO and reject attempts by some third countries to undermine the legislation. The transcript of this debate is online.

A newspaper report in FT Deutschland wrongly reported that the Commission was seeking an operating ban on US airlines. The transcript of the hearing correctly indicates what was said.
