Airbus ministers seek EU emissions plan suspension -Hintze

Aerospace officials of the UK, France, Germany and Spain are planning to push for a suspension of the EU's Emission Trading System (ETS) for airlines to avert retaliation from China, Reuters has reported. The officials would propose to their national governments that payments under the ETS should be delayed beyond the planned April start, said German government official in charge of aerospace policy, Peter Hintze. "I am in favour of a suspension until the autumn of 2013," Hintze told journalists following a news conference with fellow ministers. "That would buy some time from April until September."
