IATA: Dutch ticket tax proposal is ineffective and inappopriate

“The International Air Transport Association (IATA) condemned the Dutch Government’s plans to impose further taxes on air passengers. The government is planning to tax passengers departing the Netherlands by air as much as € 45 citing environmental reasons.The passenger tax also breaches resolutions of the International Civil Organisation (ICAO) and Article 15 of the Chicago Convention on International Civil Aviation. ‘I am surprised that the Netherlands, as an ICAO Contracting State, chooses to ignore its obligations and trample over international agreements’, Bisignani, IATA Director General and CEO, commented.”Source: Avionews.
