If your answer to all above questions is “yes” you are obliged to pay the Austrian Air Transport Levy for every passenger departing from an Austrian airport.
There is a federal law in force in Austria (“Air
Transport Levy Act”) which requires all aircraft operators and airlines to pay
the so-called “Austrian Air Transport Levy” for each carried passenger to the
Austrian ministry of finance via the relevant Austrian tax office.
It ranges from EUR 3,50 (Short haul) to EUR 17,50 (Long haul destinations).
Transit passengers, infants and positioning crew are exempted from this levy.
Foreign aircraft operators/airlines not residing within the European Union are not allowed to calculate, charge and pay the tax by themselves but have to do so via an Austrian fiscal representative ( §8 air transport levy act ). For airlines residing within the European Union it is possible to handle the levy by themselves, but due to language barriers highly recommended to employ a fiscal representative nonetheless as all forms and reporting tools online are in German language only.
Our company offers such services at reasonable expense! Flat fees available for every month in which departures from an Austrian airport took place.
If there was no such flight there is no payment obligation!
