Berlin (AP) - CSU country group leader Alexander Dobrindt has defended his push for a "competitive price tax" for low-cost flights. He wanted to make rail travel more attractive to air traffic, said Dobrindt in Berlin. Therefore, it makes sense on the one hand to reduce the VAT on long-distance tickets and on the other hand to ensure fair fares. From the CSU leadership had been contradicted the thrust. This was not a coordinated proposal of the CSU, said Secretary General Markus Blume.
