As of July next year, the Government will introduce “a
carbon tax for air travel consumers on aircraft with a maximum capacity of up
to 19 seats”, which will be levied “on each commercial and non-commercial
flight departing from airports and aerodromes located in Portuguese territory”.
“The fee is charged and settled by aircraft owners or
aircraft operators or air carriers that perform the flights and market the
flight, respectively”, with the fee reverting to the Environmental Fund.
