Climate protection: CSU calls for punitive tax on cheap flights in Europe


Alexander Dobrindt wants a media report according to "climate protection instead of competitive prices." All flights under 50 euros should be subject to a penalty tax.

The CSU state group in the Bundestag apparently demands a punitive tax on cheap flights within Europe. Affected are flights that cost less than 50 euros, it is said according to the Bild newspaper in a paper of the party. The plan is to be discussed at the autumn meeting of the CSU National Group on Tuesday.

Country Group chief Alexander Dobrindt told the newspaper: "I want climate protection instead of competitive prizes." 9-euro tickets for flights in Europe have nothing to do with either market economy or climate protection, we want real freedom of choice in terms of mobility through sustainable pricing of offers. "

The CSU national group would therefore introduce a minimum price for airline tickets, according to newspaper data in the paper. "Flying needs a minimum price and train driving a reduction in VAT." Who offers airline tickets below 50 €, should in future pay a competitive price tax, "said Dobrindt.
