Airlines oppose EU plans to monitor non-CO2 emissions – Reports

Moscow: International airlines have privately asked the European Union to ease plans to require the industry to monitor non-carbon dioxide emissions, the Financial Times newspaper reported, citing a letter from International Air Transport Association (IATA) Director General Willie Walsh.

The EU is introducing rules requiring all airlines from January 2025 to quantify and report non-carbon dioxide emissions of flights departing from countries within the bloc, the newspaper reported.

Walsh warned of “growing concern across the airline community” and called on Brussels to make participation in its initiative voluntary and apply rules only to flights within the bloc, the report said on Sunday.

Walsh reportedly added that airlines are particularly concerned that non-carbon emissions cannot be calculated with the same “high certainty” as carbon emissions. He also noted that the proposed methodology “is feared insufficiently mature to measure non-CO2 emissions accurately, or to help address their mitigation effectively,” the report read.
