It's time again to prepare your emissions report for Aviation EU ETS compliance or, at least, check whether your flight department is exempt from the reporting and surrendering obligations in relation to the previous calendar year.

But until recently, it was not sure whether your emissions report for 2017 must also include extra-European flights (that are flights between the EEA* and third countries) as the derogation from full scope (as codified in EU Regulation 421/2014) only lasted until 2016.

Aircraft operators with flights to and from Swiss airports might find themselves confronted with new monitoring and reporting obligations. This is because the Swiss Emissions Trading System (ETS) now also covers CO2 emissions from domestic and international aviation. The first compliance deadline is 30 September 2017. This is the date by which participating aircraft operators must submit a tonne-kilometre monitoring plan to the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN).

This article gives you all the information you need to know. It explains what the Swiss ETS is all about and helps you determine whether you have any obligations under this new regulation.

UK Air Passenger Duty (APD) applies to business aircraft operators since 1 April 2013. Many of them are in full compliance since day one. Surprisingly, there is still a number of operators who either haven't heard about APD or have received misleading information.
