ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact of the airline carbon-offsetting scheme by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to the trade relationship between the air travel industry and the government in Great Britain. Several airlines have declined from the media announcement about carbon offsetting. Moreover, the airlines' decline from carbon offsetting is related to the air passenger duty tax increase.
