What are the industry’s views on CORSIA progress at ICAO? Does it have concerns?
Does industry feel countries are ready for CORSIA introduction?
Is industry confident that CORSIA will be the only market-based measure for dealing with emissions from international aviation as more countries introduce carbon taxes and the Aviation EU ETS possibly set to continue after 2021?
In view of the industry’s own 2050 carbon reduction target, should ICAO be moving quicker to adopt a long-term strategy that can achieve it?
