UN aviation committee approves airline climate deal

MONTREAL, Oct 6 (Reuters) - The world’s first aviation pollution agreement was endorsed by a key United Nations committee on Thursday, bolstering the deal’s chances of approval by member states after years of talks.

The International Civil Aviation Organization’s global carbon offseting system is expected to cost airlines less than 2 percent of revenues and would apply to international passenger and cargo flights, and business jets that generate more than 10,000 tonnes of emissions annually.
