Jersey ponders tax on private jets

The Channel Island of Jersey is considering the introduction of a tax on private jet operators as part of a proposal to raise funds to achieve carbon neutrality. The Jersey government is looking to raise £300 million over the next 30 years to achieve net zero. It is not yet clear whether the proposed tax would fall on aircraft owners or passengers, or both. Government papers state that Jersey would look at a “proportionate tax or charge” to balance the “significant environmental impact” of private aircraft travel against the “important role” it plays in “servicing the island as a hub for business and leisure”.
