Burn said the measure was for departure flights, not for flights to France. However, some analysts believe that because the amount of taxation is too low, it may not have a great impact.

Reported that between 2017 and 2018, British air passenger tax amounted to 3.4 billion pounds, although this tax is not a specific environmental protection tax, but the starting point is 14.45 euros, while Germanys starting point is 8 euros, Swedens starting point is 5.64 euros.

Air France, which has a 14% stake in the French government, said after the government issued the statement that it was strongly opposed to the new tax. In a statement, Air France said, This means that Air France will increase the additional cost of more than 6 million euros per year.
