Abstract:     
In a preliminary ruling on Air Transport Association of America (ATAA) v. Energy Secretary the European Court of Justice (CJEU) delivered a groundbreaking decision. The case is concerned with the legality of the inclusion of the aviation sector in the EU emission trading scheme (ETS). As such, it poses many interesting legal questions from a EU external relations and EU environmental law points of view but ultimately what the case represents is a resounding victory for the EU and its Member States in confirming the legality of the inclusion of aviation in the EU ETS.

Keywords: EU, Climate Change, ETS, External Relations, International Aviation, Law, Sustainable Development
