Abstract

This paper proposes that in the near future –from now to 2020– the prices of aviation fuels shall undergo dramatic increases due to the fact that energy will become more expensive on global level and, most of all, due to the severe imposition of tax burden provoked by the necessity of lowering the impact of air transport over climate change. From this starting point the increase of costs it is estimated that they will bring along two destinations such as sun and beach, for this reason Ibiza and Punta Cana. The paper also shows sufficient material to evaluate the impact of the increase of aviation fuel over other destinations such as the Canary Islands, Cancun and the Seychelles. The project incorporates features as the future technological evolution of commercial aviation and the incidence of the new tax philosophy already tested by the European Union concerning this mean of transport.
