IATA Calls for EC to Back Alt, Fuels Incentives (Int'l Report)
IATA
Date: 2018-06-04
Further to our 28 February, 2018 coverage, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) is calling for the European Council (EC) and Commission (EU) to back incentives for production of aviation alternative-biofuels as part of an imminent renewable energy directive.

The directive includes specific incentives for EU member countries developing their use in aviation which essentially give it twice as much credit against national targets as alternative fuels in other sectors. The directive, which followed European Commission proposals, now awaits the European Council agreement.

The IATA notes that since the first biofuels flight in 2008 there have been more than 100,000 commercial flights using some blend of alternative fuel. (Source: IATA, Flight Global, 3 June, 2018)Contact: IATA, Michael Gill, Director Aviation Environment, +41 22 770 2967, www.iata.org
