China tells carriers not take part in ETS

[ February 6, 2012   //   ]

China said it had banned all its air carriers from taking the EU’s Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS). The controversial ETS, which came into effect on 1 January, levies a charge on flights in EU airspace based on carbon emissions. It has been strongly criticised by carriers outside Europe and by the airfreight industry as a restriction on trade.
