Remove this "Gordon Brown wanted a piece of the pie" tax on the one area of the transport network that was actually successful and performing for customers, which is now damaging the industry as per a number of airlines reducing flights and reducing visitor numbers.

 

 

This unfairly targets airlines operating out of the UK whereas many European competitors don't have this tax and have a commercial advantage.

This 'green tax' went directly to the treasury for Gordon Brown to waste on national debt. At least ring fence it to invest in a greener UK airline industry so that we can get ahead from our worldwide competitors.

Why is this idea important?

It's a bad sign to business that when they are successful, they get hammered for it and in the end customers all lose out.
