Airlines Cannot Pocket VAT on Unused Tickets

The European Court of Justice has ruled that an airline has to account for VAT, paid to it by a customer, on an unused ticket where there was no refund to the customer. In Air France-KLM C-250&289/14 (Dec/14) the Court decided that VAT paid when the ticket was bought by the customer was still accountable, i.e. had to be paid over, by the airline because the VAT had become chargeable on payment of it by the customer.
