The case for such taxes is strong: the tax burden on international aviation is currently limited, yet it contributes significantly to border-crossing environmental damage. A tax on aviation fuel would address the key border-crossing externalities most directly- a ticket tax could raise more revenue- departure taxes face the least legal obstacles. Optimal policy requires deploying both fuel and ticket taxes.

A fuel tax of 20 U.S. cents per gallon (10 percent, at todays fuel prices, corresponding to assessed environmental damage), or alternatively ticket taxes of 2.5 percent, would raise about US$10 billion if imposed worldwide, and US$3 billion if applied only in Europe.
