Special Reserve of free allowances for fast-growing operators and new entrants: new tkm plan must be submitted as soon as possible
Reminder: for Phase III of EU ETS (2013-2020), 3% of the total quantity of free aviation allowances are set aside in a ‘special reserve’ for aircraft operators.
The ‘special reserve’ is reserved for:
- New entrants: new operators who commenced flight activity after 2010; and,
- Fast-growing operators: operators who have had a growth in tonne-kilometre (tkm) activity in excess of 18% on average annually between 2010 and 2014, which is equivalent to a total growth of 93.8% over the 2010-2014 period.
Aircraft operators are recommended to contact their Competent Authority for tkm plan submission deadline information.
Please note that the application for the special reserve is optional.
