The Government remains open to considering all feasible measures to ensure that the aviation sector contributes fairly to UK emissions reductions, and is committed to meeting its emissions reduction targets under the Climate Change Act.

There are a range of measures available to reduce carbon emissions from aviation, including biofuels, airspace reform and improvements in technology.

As mentioned in the Clean Growth Strategy, the Government will set out its strategic approach to the aviation sector in a series of consultations leading to the publication of a new Aviation Strategy for the UK.

The Strategy will consider what the best approach and combination of policy measures are to ensure we effectively address carbon emissions from aviation.
