EU tax to add to price of air tickets

EU tax could add to price of air tickets as the EU tries to become self financing so as not to have to ask the member states governments about giving it more money for its budget, which it has not been able to get signed off by it's auditors for a decade now. The excuse they use is climate change, despite the fact that aviation only accounts for 2-3 per cent of EU emissions. I've covered the EU's proposed taxes before,but like everything from the EU it just keeps on creeping away slowly heading towards the goal of a single nation state of Euroland.
