Aviation policy options for not exceeding the EU +2 ◦C threshold

By Dr. Paul Upham, Dr. Alice Bows, Dr. Kevin Anderson and Mr. John Broderick

thermometerThis essay discusses the disjuncture between EU aviation emissions growth and the EU climate change commitment to not exceeding a 2 ◦C rise in global mean surface temperature above the pre-industrial level (EC, 2007a), particularly the roles of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) and the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).

Single European Sky and its impacts on CO2 emissions

Aaron Scholz, Patrick Jochem, Dr. Anselm Ott and Paolo Beria

Aviation has been subject to comprehensive changes over the last decades. Passenger numbers and freight volumes are booming. Adverse impacts are correlated to growth rates. One of the themes in the debate on external effects is the discussion on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Promoted by the industry, the implementation of a Single European Sky (SES) is one step in reducing CO2-emissions in aviation. In this article Aaron Scholz and his co-authors examine the potential of a SES for in-flight emission reductions.

In collaboration with the Dutch Ministry for Housing, Spatial Planning and Environment (VROM) Aerlines Magazine is proud to present the publication ofonearticle about spatial planning and/or the environment, in the next four issue of this magazine. The objective of this partnership is to raise awareness and to facilitate the sharing knowledge by facilitating the publication of independent scientific research by prominent members of the scientific community.

The Dilemma of Noise Pollution: Commentary on Alders Roundtable

In the Netherlands, the parties that determine the future of the national hub Schiphol Airport have been wrestling for decades with the dilemma that growth means more noise pollution, at least in the short term. In a new effort to reconcile the irreconcilable, the Dutch Cabinet asked former minister Hans Alders to devise a plan for making future controlled growth of the airport possible, and to do this in co-operation with interested parties such as the airport and inhabitants of the surrounding municipalities. Last October, this ‘Alders-table’ delivered its report. Highlights are that Schiphol should be allowed to grow to 510.000 aircraft movements in 2020 (430.000 in 2007) and that the present legally set noise control instruments be replaced by a constellation of agreements between the airports and the people living around it.

Noise Disruptions at Barcelona Airport (ongoing PhD Research)

By Pere Suau-Sanchez

In this paper, Pere Suau-Sanchez highlights the importance of environmental capacity of airports, using a more detailed analysis of the Barcelona case and its local complexity. The chronology of events that have arisen since the opening of the new third runway is explained with special emphasis being placed on the relation between external territorial factors and internal airport dynamics. The article concludes with the future perspectives for the airport, and highlights the urgency for thinking how this infrastructure should be enlarged.

4.3 – The Role of the Railway in the Future of Air Transport

By Moshe Givoni

givoniPolicymakers support substitution of air by rail services, which are usually promoted through competition between the modes. However, as the potential benefits from air-rail cooperation are greater than the benefits from air-rail competition, policymakers should promote integration instead of competition. Moshe Givoni explains why this is the case and what obstacles must be taken when developing successful intermodal policies.
