Afghanistan hikes air tax by USD 100

The Afghan government has increased air tax by USD 100 in a bid to increase government revenue from the airspace.

Previously, an air tax of USD 400 would be charged for every flight passing through the Afghan airspace. With effect from 01 April 2015, the rate is hiked to USD 500.

The decision was made during a cabinet meeting chaired President Ashraf Ghani before his departure to the US.

Over 200 flights pass through the Afghan airspace on a daily basis, generating millions of dollars in revenue to the Afghan government.
