For foreign aircraft older than 10 years, will have to pay an environmental fee

For foreign aircraft in Russia can introduce an environmental fee.

The Ministry of Industry and Trade has already made a relevant proposal to introduce an environmental fee for airlines operating foreign aircraft older than 10 years. The reasons for the introduction of the environmental fee are still unknown, however, experts believe that in reality, this may be related to the purpose of popularization of domestic passenger liners, since in fact, the proposed fee will not affect Russian aircraft of all ages.

Experts are of the opinion that the government is not yet ready to take such measures, as this will create a lot of problems for carriers.
