Aviation: IATA hits out at India, says GST on international air tickets wrong
Global airlines’ body IATA has strongly opposed levying of GST on international air tickets, dubbing the taxation as “wrong” as it contravenes many global agreements to which India is a party. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) represents more than 280 airlines in different parts of the world.
Under the GST regime, tax at the rate of 5 per cent and 12 per cent is levied on economy and business class air tickets, respectively. Image source: Reuters
