The truth behind airline subsidies

When Europeans travel for what they think is a really great price, sometimes it’s really not. What you save on direct spending for that ticket may have come out of your pocket via taxes.
The European Commission publishes its new state aid guidelines for airlines and airports on February 19 and the truth will come out about how state aid fuels the fight for subsidies among airlines. Large legacy carriers have been asking for aid in order to keep a level playing field amongst the aggressively priced low-cost carriers and those carriers from outside Europe. Additionally, airports are asking for funding as they can’t keep up with the cost of operations. Almost 50 percent of the airports in Europe work at a loss.
The new guidelines are sure to restrict state aid for both airports and airlines.
The above article is a summary. Please see the source article at Google News.
