[holding answer 16 December 2008]: France and the Netherlands have aviation passenger taxes which are similar to the UK's air passenger duty. The Republic of Ireland will introduce a similar tax in March 2009. All of these duties make a distinction based on the final destination of the passenger.
The French have a civil aviation passenger tax and a solidarity passenger tax both of which charge on whether the passenger is flying within Europe or elsewhere. The Netherlands uses a system based on distance to destination from airport of departure and the Irish plan to use distance from Dublin airport.
