France announces 'eco-tax' on tickets for all flights leaving the country

France will introduce an “eco-tax” of up to 18 euros on tickets for all flights leaving France, the government has said.

“We have decided to put in place an eco-tax on all flights from France,” transport minister Elisabeth Borne said during a news conference on Tuesday. 

She added the tax, which is expected to raise around 180 million euros annually from 2020, would finance daily transport in France.
