Michael comments on concern in the Aviation industry over the aviation verification process:

"The EC has rejected the attempts of airlines to argue for a delay to the start of the EU ETS as a result of the volcanic eruptions.

"The EC takes the view that any distributional impacts between airlines are likely to be small as most operators have been impacted by the flight restrictions and the increase in business seen in the weeks following the disruption, with many airlines carrying high amounts of passengers and freight as travel patterns returned to normal, will balance out the effects of the cancelled flights."
