Qantas CEO Alan Joyce addressed the annual Centre for Aviation summit on 7 August, stressing that imposing levies on airlines and travellers is not the solution to climate change. The French government recently announced a new tax on airfares, and the Netherlands is considering a similar levy. Joyce argued that the global airline industry is aware of its environmental impact and is taking action to reduce its carbon footprint. He also stressed the economic importance of international air travel in terms of trade and job creation.
