4 February 2022 marked a new ear for the European Aviation. In Toulouse, European officials, representatives of ICAO, industry businesses and associations, joined online by countries’ officials from the world over gathered at the European Aviation Summit. The Toulouse Summit was organized in the framework of the French EU Presidency that will run through the first half of 2022.
The high-level discussions were focused on the goals within the so-called ICAO’s “basket of measures” for sustainable aviation: aircraft technology and standards, sustainable aviation fuels, air traffic operations.
European officials, national ministers, and industry experts have presented the Toulouse Declaration on carbon neutrality. Through its signature, many air transport industry stakeholders have upheld its commitment to the green transition for the European aviation and laid down a pathway to the global cooperation in the framework of the ICAO Assembly that will place in September this year.

As the finale of the Summit, the Toulouse Declaration on carbon neutrality was officially adopted and its signatories, and AIRE among them, were presented to the public. The Declaration marks an ambitious commitment to achieving net zero CO2 emissions in aviation by 2050. This goes in line with the European climate goals set out in the “Fit for 55” legislative package which is currently being debated on in the European Parliament.

AIRE would like to thank its members for their support and reassure that our Association is committed to continuing its dialogue with policy makers, partner associations and officials on the European and national levels to work together towards competitiveness and positive development of the air transport industry.
