Corendon founder opposes ticket tax on long-haul flights

May 27, 2024  –THE HAGUE – Atilay Uslu, the founder of Corendon, is against the higher ticket tax for long-haul flights. He believes that short-distance flights pose a greater problem for the environment and that a higher rate should apply to those flights. 

Uslu prefers to see flights of less than 500 kilometers disappear altogether. He referred to daily flights between Schiphol and Brussels as an example. Additionally, he mentioned that vacations are at risk of becoming too expensive for people, making travel accessible only to the elite. 

Political parties PVV, VVD, NSC, and BBB have stated in their coalition agreement that the tax on plane tickets should be increased for long-distance flights. This also affects Corendon, which offers vacations to Curaçao and Bonaire.
