Environmental constraints on air transport
To reduce the climate impact of aviation, the Swedish government has decided on the bill's obligation to reduce aviation kerosene and to charge emission-based fees for flights.
Obligations for aviation kerosene:
Suppliers of aviation kerosene will be obliged to mix biofuels into fossil aviation kerosene. The requirement for interference starts at 0.8% in 2021 to gradually increase to 27% in 2030.
Emissions-based landing fees for flights:
The government wants to introduce takeoff and landing charges to encourage a switch from jet fuels to biofuels. The fees are differentiated on the basis of the environmental and climate impact of an aircraft or a flight.
The legislations has entered into force since 1 July 2021.
