In the face of a climate crisis and a global pandemic, European governments have spent almost 30 billion euro bailing out airlines, without any meaningful environmental or social conditions. On top of that, airlines have slashed jobs and are refusing to reduce emissions. The European Commission consented to airline bailouts, despite their incompatibility with a European Green Deal.
