France Slashes Aviation Tax For Transit Passengers

03 April 2015


The French Government has announced that aviation tax in respect of transit passengers was cut by 50 percent from April 1, 2015.

The 50 percent reduction will be followed by the repeal of the charge from January 1, 2016. Transport Secretary Alain Vidalies said the measure is intended to improve the competitiveness of Parisian airports, compared with rivals in Amsterdam, London, and Frankfurt.

He said: "I salute this measure, which arises from a study of the necessity to support the air transport sector. This is a first step in the work of improving competitiveness in this sector."
