In a June 14th press release, Ryanair supported the expansion of the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) to include flights departing the EEA, as proposed by EU Parliament. Ryanair’s CEO, Michael O’Leary, further described the current intra-EEA scope “absurd, unfair and inexplicable” and called on EU member states and Frans Timmermans to support the Parliamentary vote. However, in a June 9th press release, International Air Transport Association's (IATA) CEO, Willie Walsh, opposed the application of the EU ETS to flights departing the EEA, appearing to argue it may derail decarbonization efforts in faster growing markets outside of Europe. Instead, Walsh supported regulation through CORSIA. Likewise, in a June 8th statement on the EU Parliamentary vote, Airlines for Europe (A4E) appeared to also oppose an extension of the EU ETS to flights departing the EEA, the phase-out of free emissions allowances by 2025, and the inclusion of non-CO2 emissions within the EU ETS. In the statement, A4E welcomed the adoption of Sustainable Aviation Fuel allowances by Parliament.
