  • Pressure from U.S., China, other nations led to delay of EU ETS
    Significant pressure on the European Union led to the postponement by one year of the implementation of its emissions-trading scheme. U.S. and Chinese opposition played a key role in the postponement. Airlines for America spent more than two years persuading the Obama administration and Congress to oppose the scheme and is now focusing its attention on regulation and tax overhaul. "This issue has really united unions, corporations and the industry in a new way, and the airlines absolutely want to build on that as we move into a national airline policy," said Sean Kennedy, senior vice president for global government affairs at A4A.
