The flight tax : An analysis of the potential effects on three Swedish airports (English)
Abstract [sv]

I december 2016 publicerade den svenska regeringen ett förslag om en skatt på flygresor. Med stöd av empiriskt material från andra länder inom EU där liknande flygskatter införts, visar utredningen på varierande effekter. Syftet med uppsatsen är att undersöka vilka eventuella effekter en införd flygskatt i Sverige kan medföra på resenärers och flygbolags beteende på svenska flygplatser. I uppsatsen tillämpas Herfindahl-Hirschmans koncentrationsindex, efterfrågeelasticiteter och sekundärdata från nationella och internationella institutioner i Europa, för att estimera hur en skatt på flygresor kan komma att påverka tre svenska flygplatser. Resultatet visar på ett resenärs- och intäktsbortfall för studiens utvalda flygplatser. Bortfallens olika storlek härleds till flygplatsernas skilda förutsättningar gällande tillgängliga substitut, geografiska läge och etablerade position på den internationella flygplatsmarknaden.

Abstract [en]

In December 2016, the Swedish government published an investigation proposal regarding a flight tax on air passenger travel in Sweden. Supported by empirical data from other EU-countries with a similar tax application, the investigation concludes inconclusive effects of a flight tax. The purpose of this thesis is to examine the potential effects of an implemented flight tax on travelers and airlines behaviour in Sweden. The Herfindahl-Hirschman concentration index is applied in the thesis together with estimated demand elasticities and statistical secondary data from national and international institutions in Europe, in order to estimate how the tax would affect three swedish airports. The conclusion indicates a loss in both revenue and number of passengers for the selected airports. The differences in the size of the losses are derived by the airports separate conditions in available substitutes, geographical location and the established position on the international airport market.
