What are the associated exemptions and thresholds under the UK ETS ?


In all scenarios (linking or no linking), the thresholds for commercial and non-commercial aircraft operators would be the same as those in the current EU ETS. 
 
Commercial aircraft operators would not be subject to any obligations if they meet either of the following criteria: 

• Operate fewer than 243 flights per period for three consecutive four-month periods based on full scope activity. The four-month periods are: January to April, May to August, September to December, 

• Operate flights with total annual emissions less than 10,000 tonnes of CO2 per year based on full scope activity. 

Non-commercial aircraft operators would not be subject to any obligations if they operate flights with total annual emissions lower than 1,000 tonnes of CO2 per year based on full scope activity.
