    All travellers flying out of Singapore will pay higher air fares due to a new levy that the Government is to impose as part of a move to require departing flights use environmentally sustainable jet fuel.
    It is reported that Civil Aviation Authority will impose levies according to the flight length with Economy class passenger needing to pay an additional around US$12 on all long Haul flights. Premium passengers will pay more and shorter haul flights a lesser percentage.

    Reportedly the initiative is part of a sustainable air hub blueprint launched on Feb 19 by Transport Minister Chee Hong Tat Ho.
    This levy however seems to me to very premature as the supply of sustainable fuel is reportedly minimal and uncertain. Seemingly this is likely to be so for the next 10 years at least making the levy seem something of a money grab by the Singapore Government.

    If the new levy is going to be invested in SAF (or even other, related eco initiatives) then I don’t have a problem with it.

    All part of the climate Scam. Make flying more expensive and unaffordable for the masses.
