Dear ARC members and friends,
This week's newsletter is focused on the development of the global market-based measure that aims at reducing CO2 emissions, since the 39th Session of the ICAO Assembly is still on-going until 7th of October. Commissioner Violeta Bulc, who is leading the talks on behalf of the Member States, considers that the proposal is "the lowest common denominator, and therefore we want to improve it". Pressure comes from IATA as well, as Alexandre de Juniac, the recently appointed Director General and CEO of IATA, calls for the implementation of CORSIA (Carbon Offset and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation).
However, there's more to discover in today's issue: Helsinki becomes the 12th most important European hub, Gatwick struggles for a second runway, the "polluters pay" principle is reinforced by Atmo France and much more updates can be accessed below.
