Do you think the Dutch government is right to levy a £17 tax on air passengers? apparently its a reaction to CO2 emmissions. However the government stand to make 350 Million euros a year from this.
Airwolf, do you know where I can get a list of taxes and other charges to passengers by each city?
To my knowledge I haven't come across a single source for this as each country can set individually, there are also several types of tax which are currently gathered some for the governments, some for the environment and some that are aimed at financing help for the poorer countries (Solidarity Contribution) but I will investigate and put one up if I find one.
Both the International Civil Aviation Organisation and the International Air Transport Association publish documents with this information - but they are aimed at airlines, and are not for free or available online.
Of course the Dutch are 'holier than thou' again, and as the AEA pointed out on this story on Air Transport Intelligence (subscription required) "If the entire Dutch aviation sector were to close down, the impact on global CO2 emissions would be so small you could hardly measure it.", and the Dutch would then drive (which causes even more pollution!) to Brussels or Cologne.
