Airlines for America (A4A) commended (22-Sep-2012) the US Senate for passage of legislation which would allow the US Transportation Secretary to direct US airlines to not participate in the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS). A4A President and CEO Nicholas E Calio said US airlines, "should not be subjected to this illegal scheme that amounts to little more than a cash grab for the European Union as none of the funds collected are required to be used for environmental purposes". The US House of Representatives has already passed a similar bill. Mr Calio said A4A supports a global sectoral approach to aviation climate change policy under ICAO, as do all other non-EU countries impacted by the scheme. [more - original PR]
