ABSTRACT
The article reports on the opposition and potential retaliation of 25 European Union (EU) member states to the inclusion of international aviation in the European emissions trading system (ETS) scheme despite the legal opinion backing the EU. The Air Transport Association (ATA) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) argue that the move violates the Chicago Convention. The IATA urges Europe to support a global scheme through the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
