The Independent on Sunday Opinion

Letter: Flying gin bottles are a waste of space
Phil Hill
Saturday, 14 June 1997

Sir: I have just returned from Chicago clutching my bottle of duty-free gin, labelled "Imported from England".
This must be one of thousands of bottles of spirits that have been needlessly flown across the Atlantic to the US, at considerable expense, only so that people like myself can get a few pounds off the cost of a bottle and then fly it straight back.
Why could I not order the duty-free goods I require as I leave Chicago, who then notify Manchester of what to have ready for me?Or why can't I buy the duty free on arrival into the UK, to pass the time while I am waiting at baggage recall?
The whole system seems to be geared to the needless transportation of duty-free goods all over the world, wasting money, fuel and aircraft hold space, and contributing more to carbon dioxide emissions.
Isn't it about time we introduced some common sense into this arrangement?

It has taken a long time but we are getting there.

Consultation sur l'accès aux «duty free shops» à l'arrivée en Suisse

On devrait y voir plus clair cet automne sur l'opportunité d'autoriser les voyageurs arrivant en Suisse de passer par les «duty free shops» avant de sortir de l'aéroport.
Le Conseil fédéral a mis mercredi cet assouplissement en consultation.
Les milieux intéressés auront jusqu'au 6 septembre pour donner leur avis concernant la loi sur l'achat de produits dans les boutiques hors taxes. Il s'agit d'élaborer des dispositions permettant de ne plus limiter la vente dans les «duty free shops» aux passagers s'envolant à destination de l'étranger.
Selon le droit en vigueur, les marchandises achetées dans les boutiques hors taxe doivent être exportées du territoire douanier suisse pour que l'exonération des redevances puisse être accordée. Par conséquence, seules les personnes en partance pour l'étranger peuvent effectuer des achats dans ces magasins.
Le projet dit de «tax free at arrival» est destiné à concrétiser une motion du conseiller national Hans Kaufmann (UDC/ZH) approuvée par le Parlement en 2007. Divers pays, dont la Norvège, Malte et Chypre, autorisent déjà l'accès aux boutiques hors taxe aussi à l'arrivée.
Si la Suisse s'aligne sur cette pratique, les aéroports pourraient engranger quelque 20 à 23 millions de francs de recettes supplémentaires par année, selon les estimations de l'époque. Le gouvernement s'était également dit prêt à modifier la législation dans l'idée de renforcer la compétitivité des aéroports suisses. Source: SDA/ATS

Hors Taxes Duty Free up and running on Twitter

There is an ongoing debate as to whether major Brands should engage more with social networking sites. Duty Free on arrival have embraced this media to build awareness of their new websites, some of which are preparing for the potential introduction of arrivals duty free in Canada. It is noticeable that many major and low-cost airlines have joined the Twitter frenzy, as perhaps they feel the need to be represented there. How many other Brands will join and does this marketing really work for global brands?

Des avions verts en 2011 IATA


Toutefois, ces biocarburants ne sont pas encore produits à une échelle commerciale, en quantité viable avec des normes communes de qualité. De même des stockages doivent être mis en place.

"La production commerciale doit être une priorité pour les gouvernements qui doivent l'encourager avec des incitations fiscales efficaces et un cadre de régulation", a réclamé le président de IATA.

Bisignani a précisé que cette année les émissions de CO2 causées par le secteur de l'aviation seraient en baisse en raison principalement de la réduction du trafic aérien due à la crise.

IATA représente 230 compagnies, soit 93% du trafic aérien international, à l'exception des compagnies à bas prix.
