Jet2 appointed to Jet Zero Council
Jet2 has been appointed to the Jet Zero Council, the partnership body tasked with delivering decarbonisation in the aviation sector.
As part of the Council, Jet2 will ask the Government to show greater transparency on where money collected for the UK Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) is spent.
It will call for revenue to be put specifically towards decarbonisation policies.

Jet2 will work towards delivering greater investment in sustainable aviation fuels.
