ABSTRACT
The article discusses the environmental challenges facing the aviation industry. If the suggested 10% reduction on 2005 levels by 2020 is accepted, the industry will have its work cut out, a fact recognised by IATA, which described 10% as not realistic. The target would need to be agreed by the European Commission, but it is a sign of the growing pressure on airlines ahead of the United Nations (UN) summit on climate change in Copenhagen, Denmark in December 2009.
