GERMANY departing air passengers, will have to pay a tax of €8 for short haul European flights, including domestic, €25 medium haul and €45 on long range services following government approval of the controversial, so called ‘green’ tax on air travel. The German airlines are concerned that passengers will transfer their travel to convenient airports in Belgium, Holland, Poland and Switzerland all of which do not impose this levy. Giovanni Bisignani, CEO of the International Air Transport Association (IATA), pointed out in a statement that environmentally the scheme did not pass scrutiny with passengers transferring by less efficient surface transport. www.iata.org
