Flight tax


The government proposed a 13 DKK tax for a plane ticket, regardless of the destination from 2025. Why? To gather 1,8 billion DKK for development of green technologies so that all the Danish domestic airplanes fly climate-neutral from 2030. How? Power-to-X technology which converts electricity from wind turbines into liquid green fuel for airplanes. 

  • Radikale Venstre says the amount is too small and too late introduced. Enhedslisten asked for a 125 DKK tax on domestic flights. SF proposed a 100 DKK tax on domestic flights and up to 700 DKK on intercontinental flights. 
  • Besides Denmark, only Cyprus, Ireland and Malta do not have a flight tax in the European Union.
