EU program will drastically increase operating costs for airlines, reports Li Jing in Beijing.

Watch out, frequent travelers between China and Europe. You may have to pay more for flights starting next year to offset your carbon footprint.

The European Union has set Jan 1 as the starting date for all flights, incoming and departing from the continent, to meet emission limits or pay penalties for breaking them.

The four Chinese airlines - Air China, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines and HNA Group - that operate flights between China and Europe have been asked to abide by the rule.
