North America accounts for nearly 40 percent of the world s GHG emissions from aviation fuel use. 78
A second financial issue is that of hedging oil and fuel purchases which are usually second only to labor in its relative cost to the company. However with the current high fuel prices it has become the largest cost to an airline.
