EU names airlines that could face Europe ban

BRUSSELS, Aug 22 – The European Union on Saturday published a list of nearly 4,000 airlines that it says should reduce their impact on the environment from 2012 or face being banned from European airports.

Pollution from aircraft emissions currently represent three percent of European emissions.

The EU adopted the policy in January despite opposition from the majority of International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) member countries and companies belonging to the International Air Transport Association (IATA). A new European law is due to come into force soon.

Under the new law, from January 1, 2012 all airlines — both European and non-European — operating within Europe would have to limit CO2 emissions or face penalties.

The list was published in the Official Journal of the European Union.
