Swedavia welcomes proposal for reduction quota scheme for aviation

4 March, 2019

Swedavia responded (04-Mar-2019) positively to a report submitted by Swedish lawmaker Maria Wetterstrand on the implementation and use of biofuel in aviation through the introduction of a reduction quota scheme, as opposed to a national aviation tax. Swedavia president and CEO Jonas Abrahamsson said: "Introducing a reduction quota scheme as an alternative to the national aviation tax is thus a step in the right direction since it both reduces emissions and contributes to Swedish, large scale production of biofuel… If Sweden takes the global lead regarding biofuel production, we can create a brand new industry and many new jobs in Sweden". [more - original PR]
