Environment Tax Results in Negative Impact on Environment

The VNC, the largest trade union of airline cabin personnel, has written to the Prime Minister and the Minister of Finance regarding the negative effects of the new Dutch environmental tax on airline tickets. Low cost airlines are now moving to Belgium and passengers from the Netherlands are traveling there by bus in order to take advantage of lower fares. This has a more negative effect on the environment than the reduction in airline traffic, resulting from the tax. The VNC claims also that there will be a major decline in employment opportunities for its members.
