European Carbon Tax May Cost Russians Extra Rubles

Starting from 2012 Russian airlines are to pay 25 -30 million Euros for flights to and from European airports due to European carbon tax. This may increase ticket prices, says The Kommersant.

According to the newspaper about 80% of these charges will be paid by Aeroflot, which is responsible for most flights from Russia to Europe.

Russia has been against unilateral introduction of the carbon tax by the European Union.  Apart from Russia, the US and China have expressed their protest against the tax. Though the US air lines have already raised the ticket cost to pay the tax. And only China has officially claimed about its refusal to pay the carbon tax.

International carriers will be given emission permits making up 85 percent of the industry cap in 2012 and will have to buy the remaining 15 percent at auction.
