[VIENNA] Austria's government announced Monday it would introduce a 40-euro (S$63) minimum price for flights in order to combat "social and environmental dumping" in the aviation industry.

At a press conference announcing a government-backed rescue package for Austrian Airlines, Environment Minister Leonore Gewessler said: "It will no longer be possible to offer tickets which are cheaper than the actual costs," referring to the social and environmental impact of the industry.
