Chapter Summary

One of John's specialist interests has been Article 15 of the Chicago Convention. Whilst some may consider this Article to be esoteric, its practical ramifications are very significant. There has been a recent trend, which is extremely worrying for airlines, for governments to impose air passenger duties on passengers in a manner which may be considered contrary to Article 15; and the imposition of the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) on the aviation sector has also raised questions as to the compatibility of unilateral governmental legislation with the corpus of international aviation law. This chapter explores some of these issues. John has advanced a wholly opposite conclusion to that of the Dutch courts on the compatibility of the Dutch Ticket Tax with Article 15 of the Chicago Convention.
