All aircraft operators that have flights that start and end within the EU are eligible for inclusion in the trading scheme. As of 2012 all such organisations must report emissions annually. These reports need to be verified by an accredited body and shared with the EU ETS regulator by 31 March 2013. Airlines are eligible for a free allocation of allowances. These are only allocated if an operator’s 2010 baseline emissions data is verified. We have recently provided verification services to Monarch Airlines, Sony Aviation, Thomas Cook Airlines and Virgin Atlantic Media.
