ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Europe's cap and trade greenhouse gas permitting system known as the EU ETS (European Union Emissions Trading System). Under the EU Directive, the EU is being paid for carbon emitted over journeys beginning or ending in the EU. Sufficient allowances are allocated to cover 97 percent of aircraft emissions. Greenhouse gas emissions from flights are monitored by operators.
