Possible Siberian Flight Limitations

In response to the carbon tax imposed by the bloc, Russia is considering limiting the flights over Siberian airspace for all EU carriers.  Earlier this year, the European Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) began charging all carriers in the EU a tax for the carbon dioxide emissions they produce.  Ivan Kim, transport and infrastructure analyst from Renaissance Capital, said that this tax will cost Russian airlines about 30 million euros, with Aerloft, the country’s flagship carrier, bearing the brunt of the blow.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) are gathering in Moscow to work out a final decision.  Russia, Brazil, the US, and other non-EU countries say that they should not have to pay the tax.  There are as many as 30 countries that plan to take measures in response to the decision.  Limitations on aircraft flying through Siberian airspace is one such measure.  They also plan to ban their airlines from paying the tax.
