Abstract: It is recognised that Europe’s aviation sector brings significant economic and social benefits. However its activities also contribute to climate change, noise and local air quality impacts, and consequently affect the health and quality of life of European citizens. The historic rate of improvement in the environmental performance of the aviation sector has not kept pace with the growth in demand for air travel, and this trend is forecast to continue. Consequently the environmental challenge for the sector will increase. Therefore the future growth in the European aviation sector is inextricably linked to its environmental sustainability. A comprehensive and effective package of measures is required to address this challenge. The foundation of such an approach requires published, reliable and objective information, accessible to all. This is the core objective of the European Aviation Environmental Report. Subsequent editions will periodically monitor and report on the environmental performance of the European aviation system.
