Irish carriers continue flight to claim back travel tax

Following the partial annulment of the European Commission order that the Irish government collect €8 per head for millions of passengers carried between 2009 and 2011 by Aer Lingus and Ryanair by the General Court of the European Union (click herefor the ruling), the two airlines are likely to continue suing the Irish Government for repayment of the millions in travel tax. Their claims are based on the fact that when it was introduced there were two rates: €2 per passenger for journeys up to 300km and €10 for longer trips. Aer Lingus and Ryanair claim that the lower rate should have applied across the board and the Government should repay them the difference between the two charges.
