Aviation Industry May Propose Carbon Plan Next Week, EU Says

The International Air Transport Association may propose measures to cut emissions from airlines, a step that could help a global deal on tackling pollution by the industry, a senior European Union official said.

IATA is expected to announce its initiative next week at its annual general meeting in Cape Town, South Africa, said Jos Delbeke, director general for climate at the European Commission. The aviation industry is seeking an international solution to curb greenhouse gases from airlines after it condemned the inclusion of foreign flights in the EU emissions-trading system last year.
