Kerosene tax: going it alone would be a mistake

Eric Heymann from Deutsche Bank Research writes that a tax-free fuel for air traffic is a privilege which cannot be accepted from an environmental point of view. But he argues that, for Germany, going it alone at national level would be a mistake with traffic volume moving to neighbouring countries.

At current prices, he estimates the price surcharge to make a flight climate neutral to be roughly 5-20 euros per ticket.
