When the idea of environmentally focused aviation taxes was first floated, airlines were largely in support of the idea. Recognizing something had to be done to drive forward sustainability goals, most saw this as an opportunity to work together with their governments to lay a path to climate-friendly travel for the future.
However, in those countries where an aviation tax has been implemented, it’s not working the way it should. In those which are proposing to introduce it soon, it’s not been structured in the way it should. Aviation taxes are letting the industry down.
The need to travel is not going away. With some cash injections at the right times and in the right places, we could make the future of travel a whole lot less damaging.
