Poll: Is An Eco-Tax On Domestic Flights A Good Way To Reduce The Aviation Sector's Carbon Footprint? 

In July last year, France announced plans to introduce an “eco-tax” on flights departing from French airports from 2020, sparking criticism from Air France and the French airport industry.

The move comes at a time when aviation’s contribution to climate change is in the spotlight across Europe.

Transport minister Borne said the tax would be calculated progressively, starting at a €1.50 ($1.68) contribution per flight on an internal or intra-European service and rising to as much as €18 on a business class seat to a non-EU destination.

However, is an eco-tax on domestic flights a good way to reduce the aviation sector's carbon footprint? Vote below to have your say.

If we are to tax carbon emissions, we should do so across the board, regardless of industry or market. The environment is insensitive to the source.
