Transport Ministry proposes tax to finance center for aeronautical investigations

The Transport Ministry wants to instate a new tax that will finance an investigation center for civil aviation, Realitatea.net informs. Under the proposal, every passenger that will board an airplane will pay a tax of 30 eurocents, included in the price of tickets sold by airlines, with the money going directly to state coffers. Air carriers oppose the plan. “The idea affects us, by diminishing our incomes on one hand, while increasing the airfares paid by passengers on the other,” said Adrian Ionascu, deputy CEO of Blue Air. Last year, 5 million passengers took off from Romanian airports. If each of them paid an additional 30 cents, this might bring an additional EUR 1.5 M each year.
