Airlines have told the Chancellor they can help “drag Britain out of recession” if he abolishes Air Passenger Duty (APD) at next month’s Budget.


Scrapping the controversial tax, which applies to all passengers flying from a UK airport, would deliver a 0.45pc boost to GDP within 12 months and could generate 60,000 jobs by 2020, according to a report commissioned by British Airways, easyJet, Ryanair and Virgin Atlantic

Absolutely crazy that the tax pp on long haul is now £92 No

No wonder people are hopping to Amsterdam and then flying on to America.

Hilarious that the treasury spokesman said that they don't recognise the figures behind the report. What? The same company that advises the IMF and the World Bank? Rolling Eyes
They would recognise it if it suited them wah

Take your blinds & ear defenders off then Government Officials, & see what is happening. £92 as you say Mark, that is ridiculous amount of money, & for what?

Go on a site like BA and price up two times returns to Orlando mate, any time of year, you won't believe, the tax and add ons are more than the flight now.
