International aviation should be taxed because this is a great example of a fair tax that could be used to benefit multiple countries simply by asking for the people that are well off enough to afford to travel by air to contribute more to society. Those that cannot afford to are not affected by this tax.
Taxation of International air travel would prohibit the number of flights in and out of our country. This would result in decreased trade and tourism ultimately hurting our fragile economy. We should allow other countries free access to our airports if we want to see our economy improve and trade expand.
