The data crossing with the Tax Agency, announced yesterday by the acting minister, José Luis Ábalos, is fully legal and is endorsed by the AIReF and seeks to know to which segment of the population this state aid to passenger air transport is arriving in flights to the Peninsula, but "not at all" link the discount to the level ofrent, as noted by the Minister of Transportation,Sebastian Franquis, after speaking with those responsible for the Ministry within the framework of the Road Commission Monitoring Commission.

The alarms jumped in the Islands after Ábalos revealed Wednesday in Congress that the prices ofthe tickets have become more expensive 20% on average, in some cases up to 40%, since the entry into force in July 2018 of the increase in the discount for residents from 50% to 75%. Promotion has launched various prospecting actions to determine the cause.
