What an embarrassment! EU rumbled as £11m private jet budget destroys new green pledge

BRUSSELS is planning to spend €13.5million on so-called “air taxis” for top EU officials, despite its pledge to slash emissions. According to Politico’s Mari Eccles, the EU is replacing its existing private jets policy of €10.71million between 2016 and 2021, with a substantially higher sum for the next four years. The new budget for private air travel will be allocated to the European Commission, the European Parliament, the Council and the External Action Service.
