Lufthansa warns of Chinese backlash from inclusion of aviation in EU ETS

25-May-2011 1:07 PM

Lufthansa CEO Christoph Franz cautioned that the Chinese government could mount “countermeasures” to the unilateral inclusion of airlines in the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (DW-World, 25-May-2011). Mr Franz also said the scheme will place European airlines at a competitive disadvantage. Lufthansa expects the system will add “several hundred million” euros to its costs.
