"It sounds like a breakthrough, and it’s a step in the right direction, but there are drawbacks. The scheme doesn’t come fully into operation for another decade, it doesn’t include every country (Russia and India have not signed up), only applies to international flights, and offsets cover only CO2 emissions.

Airlines can still carry on polluting if they wish, and the agreement does little to stifle the huge growth in aviation. "
