The article group A4E opposes the plan and says:
Airline group A4E has said new carbon taxes for the sector are “ecologically and economically counterproductive” and that market-based carbon pricing should be the only main form of CO2 pricing placed on the industry.
“An intra-EU kerosene tax could lead to a competitive distortion within Europe’s internal market and globally,” said A4E. “A possible kerosene tax that would set minimum tax rates for intra-EU flights is likely to have the most negative impact, as it may open the door to different rates inside the single market.”

Depending on how it is implemented could this help Qatar, Emirates and Turkish airways in competition with European airlines? If nonstop Europe to Asia will be very expensive, it might be cheaper with a stop in the Middle East? Maybe it will be cheaper to fly by Istanbul to the U.S.?
I can see that inside Europe it will create a level playing field for bio fuels, but out of Europe it can leave European airlines less competitive. It will be interesting to see what they propose. Ideally I would like this resolved in ICAO of IATA and agreed upon globally.
