Ryanair CEO wants end to airline tax hikes

O’Leary demands action from chancellor

Recently announced increases in airline taxes aimed at helping reduce
greenhouse gases should be repealed, according to
Michael
O’Leary
, the chief executive of
Ryanair.

Speaking at a press conference in London, O’Leary said greenhouse gases were
not the real reason and demanded an explanation from the Treasury about how it
plans to use the extra £1bn in revenue that will be raised.

Gordon
Brown
won’t spend any of this money on the environment. He is just using the
environment to steal more taxes from ordinary passengers,’ O’Leary claimed.
