Another surcharge on airfare?

Tourism Minister Felix Jimenez told the Spanish press that a surcharge of US$5 may be added to airfares as of February 2005, as reported in Diario Libre. The money would become part of a fund for the construction of infrastructure and improvements in beaches in tourism areas in the north, northeast and southeast. A two-year time limit would be set for the tax.
