This October, the CEOs of A4E member airlines met in Brussels to discuss ‘connectivity disruptors’ for the continent’s aviation sector. During the 2nd Annual CEO Forum a new PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) study “The economic impact of air taxes in Europe” was published. It shows that abolishing all air passenger taxes in the European Economic Area (EEA) would boost European GDP by €215 billion (cumulative) over the next 12 years. It would grow from an additional €10.5 billion in 2018 to €25 billion per year by 2030. This would create 21,000 jobs in the year following the taxes abolition with a total of 58,000 new jobs created by 2030. This is good news for the European economies and tourism which will be benefitted from the abolition of aviation taxes.
