Abstract

Discusses whether the US air transport industry will be obliged to reduce carbon emissions if the liberalisation of transatlantic air transport is to continue under the European Union-United States Open Skies Air Transport Agreement 2007. Considers the EU proposal to require airlines which fly to or from Europe to join the EU emissions trading scheme or a comparable national scheme under Directive 2003/87 art.25. Compares the arguments for environmental taxes or emissions trading schemes, and examines the feasibility of including aviation in a US scheme.
