Amsterdam Airport Expects Decline in Business Due to Environmental Tax

From this week people traveling from Dutch airports will have to pay an environmental tax of 45 Euro for intercontinental flights, and 11.25 Euro for flights within Europe. One cheap airline, the British EasyJet is decreasing its flights to and from Amsterdam and rerouting them to Brussels. It expects to transport 200,000 passengers less from Amsterdam airport in July and August – a decline of 15%.
