ICAO To Challenge Calls For Global Aviation Taxes

by Mike Godfrey, Tax-News.com, Washington

26 November 2015


The International Civil Aviation Organization has said it intends to lobby policy makers, to challenge the use of taxes on international aviation to raise funds for global, economy-wide climate change efforts.

"There have been a number of calls for global air transport revenues to be taxed by states for use in non-aviation-related climate change mitigation programs," ICAO Council President Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu said during the 206th Session of the ICAO Council on November 18, 2015.

"This is an unfair approach and one which is ultimately counter-productive given the historic and exemplary environmental performance of our sector and the significant socio-economic benefits it brings to states and regions all over the world," he said.

However, the ICAO affirmed its commitment to championing new measures to improve the aviation industry's environmental performance.
