Is a foreign holiday a luxury, only for those who can afford them? Or a necessity that should be available to everyone regardless of income? According to the Campaign for Better Transport (CBT), it is the latter. At least if you are British.
The CBT is up in arms at proposals to deal with increasing aviation emissions by introducing some sort of carbon tax. According to the CBT, this approach will mean foreign holidays are no longer affordable for many people. A problem that, in its view, will only be exacerbated by the Airport Commission’s recommendation to expand capacity (and therefore emissions) at Heathrow Airport.
