Although aviation emission trading does not officially start until 2012, yet there are new tasks approaching in 2009.
Basically all air carriers (airlines and carriers of business jets) with planes departing from or arriving in the European Union have to present their so called monitoring plans already this year. These plans describe how the CO2 emissions of airplanes are calculated. The emission reporting is to be based on these monitoring plans.
Aircraft operators also have to present a tonne kilometer monitoring plan, describing the calculation of the tonne-kilometer data to receive emission allowances free of charge.
At Safi Airways, Jazeera Airways and SAMA Prologis was entrusted with the preparation and submission of these Monitoring Plans.
