The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Monday paved the way for new curbs on emissions from passenger jets by ruling that greenhouse gases from airplanes endanger public health.The finding, which requires the EPA to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from aircraft under the federal Clean Air Act, removes a hurdle to implementing internationally agreed rules on airliner pollution in the United States, the world's biggest domestic travel market.In February, after six years of talks, the ICAO agreed on a global standard aimed at makers of small and large planes, including Airbus Group SE and Boeing Co, that will apply to all new aircraft models launched after 2020 .The next U.S. administration, which will take office next January, will largely oversee the aviation rule-making process.
