Petition Action

Reduce tax on Airline Flights

Additional Information

How can my friend fly from Miami to Manchester, Bank Holiday weekend in August, with British Airways for $297 when the similar flight from Manchester to Miami costs well in excess of £500? If the taxes are there to combat Climate Change then why is the SECOND highest producer of Carbon emissions in the World able to offer such discounted deals? We contribute aproximately 1% of GLOBAL emissions yet get absolutely CRUCIFIED by GREEN taxes!! Explain?
