Climate warning

Sueing Dutch government for putting tough measures on flight travel to deal with climate change

article view

It was announced on Friday that KLM would join the other four airlines in challenging the government's plans.
Companies said in a statement that they are "confident" in their ability to lower noise levels and CO2 emissions while still providing service to the millions of passengers and thousands of tons of cargo that pass through Schiphol each year.
Airport residents' worries about noise pollution and climate change played a role in the government's decision to close Amsterdam Schiphol.
Many airlines, including KLM, EasyJet, Delta, Tui, and Corenden, have spoken out against the proposed changes, claiming they go against EU and international law.
The annual number of flights would drop from 500,000 to 440,000 if the cap was implemented.

The government has stated its intention to prioritize addressing noise pollution while also striking a balance between the economic benefits of a large airport and a healthy living environment.

          This is so absurd! KLM should not have myopic thinking of putting profits before people.

              They should adhere, this isnt a laughing matter and the earlier they focus on transition the better. Businesses are getting disrupted as the world transitions.
