IATA slams French eco aviation tax as impeding transition to biofuels

July 10, 2019 |

In France, the International Air Travel Association says that the new eco aviation carbon tax announced recently in France is misguided and goes counter to helping airlines transition towards cleaner fuels. It will also damage EUR100 billion that aviation generates for the French economy, and 500,000 new jobs are at risk from the lack of competitiveness of French aviation. IATA says it will hold the French government to account to spend this tax on accelerating aviation sustainability, especially prioritizing more efficient air traffic control and promoting sustainable fuels.
