The aviation routes covered by the UK ETS are UK domestic flights, flights between the UK and Gibraltar, flights departing the UK to European Economic Area (EEA) states, and flights to offshore installations. Flights from EEA airports to the UK are covered by the EU ETS. The UK ETS applies to all aircraft operators, regardless of their nationality. The UK ETS does not apply to international flights to airports outwith the EEA, on the basis that ICAO is developing the CORSIA scheme to provide a carbon market and carbon price to cover these emissions.
