INFORM


CARBON TAX ON AIR TICKETS SCHEME MOOTED


AIR PASSENGERS COULD BE CHARGED a carbon tax on all UK flights under government plans to combat greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. Ministers are reportedly


considering measures that require airlines to automatically include a carbon offsetting charge at the point of sale. The Department for Transport says it is looking at an opt-out system for the carbon tax rather than opt-in, meaning passengers would have to pay the charge unless they choose not to during the booking process. Some airlines already offer


offsetting schemes, but take-up


among passengers has been low. Under the plans, a flight between London and New York could increase by about £30, but this could drop to half that if the passenger is travelling with the most fuel-efficient airlines. The measures could force


airlines to inform passengers about the carbon emissions associated with their journey when they book their tickets. France has announced it will


impose an “eco-tax” on outbound flights from 2020, with the fee potentially adding up to €18 for a long-haul business-class flight. n IATA roundtable, p28
