The Canaries will form a “united front” against a rise in airport taxes, according to Jéssica de León, the Canarian Government’s Tourism and Employment Minister.
Spain’s airport authority AENA has recently approved a 4% rise in airport taxes, which de León claimed could add €10 to the average fare to the Canaries. She stated that the Canarian Government would stand alongside tourist federations, chambers of commerce and airlines in opposing the tax hike.” Ryanair has also been vocal in opposing the tax proposal.
“The Canarian people and the Canarian tourism industry depend on aviation and air connectivity to live, to trade and for the tourism industry to be competitive in the world,” she added.
