Dissenting voices that recently got louder against the EU- ETS are being heard, according to Matthew Baldwin, Director, Aviation Directorate DG MOVE of the EU speaking at a panel discussion at AAPAs 56th Presidents Assembly here today.
"We have recognized the strength of opposition to the ETS. There is a compromise coming from Europe and the leadership of ICAO. We hope we surprise people in this room on how far we are willing to go."
Baldwin added: "Later today, in Montreal, the ICAO Council is meeting and we hope to set a sustainable roadmap for the Assembly meeting next September.
Goh Choon Fong, CEO SIA was clear. "We have been vocal in our opposition to ETS. Yes, we are complying.....glad to hear compromise is coming out of Europe. This is one of the challenges the airline (has had to face) that is out of its control."
