Charity calls for end to airline tax breaks

Link: Call for airlines to pay tax on their fuel

The environmental charity called on airlines to pay their own way, rather than benefit from a variety of tax subsidies, valued at £9.2bn, PA reported.

These include no tax on aviation fuel, exemptions from VAT on flight tickets, buying new aircraft and profits from selling duty-free goods.

It said British regions were missing out on billions as a result of these subsidies.
