CARING Project

Project CARING (Contribution of Airlines for the Reduction of Industry Nuisances and Gases) aimed at understanding how airlines deal with current and future environmental constraints (emissions and noise).



Project CARING - which was conducted in 2010 and 2011 - was the only airline-related topic in the first call for projects. The consortium was led by OpenAirlines and included airlines (Airlinair, Transavia and the TUI Group: Thomson Airways, TUIfly, Corsairfly, etc.), an airline trade association (FNAM), a university & research lab (ENAC), and expert SMEs (ENVISA, Icon Consulting and SustainAvia).

The goal of CARING was fourfold:

The consortium invested almost 1 Million € in two years to pursue this research.

SustainAvia focused on the survey of environmental constraints in the aviation industry (EU ETS, APD, eco-tax, carbon tax, airport emissions tax, engine tax, etc.) and on the analysis of how airlines cope with these constraints from a business, operational and strategic point of view.
