China ends Airbus boycott over CO2


China has relented on its anti-EU carbon emissions tax boycott on Airbus, and has ordered 60 planes from the European plane maker, including eighteen A330 long-haulers for a total of US$8 billion, reports Bloomberg.
Beijing formally gave approval at a ceremony in the presence of China's new leader, President Xi Jinping and French President Francois Hollande. The EU postponed its carbon tax for a year so the UN could come up with an alternate scheme.
The order includes 42 single-aisle aircraft in the A320 series, shorthaul aircraft not included in the boycott against a tax that would be levied CO2 emissions for entire flights and not limited to EU airspace.
The new deal allows Airbus to list in its backlog aircraft that may have already been the subject of firm contracts, but lacked the final government backing required for Airbus to consider orders certain.
State-owned China Aviation Supplies Holding Company, which signed for the single-aisle planes, will at a later point have to assign them to carriers that need them.
