The UK's Air Passenger Duty (APD) is the highest passenger tax on flying in the world. It is a tax on business activity, tourism and families, not just aviation – which is why only a handful of countries in the EU levy a passenger tax on international air travel. We believe APD is making UK goods and services more expensive, discouraging inbound tourists and investment and making the family holiday abroad less affordable. That’s why A Fair Tax on Flying is campaigning for reform of APD.

New research published in February 2013 by PwC shows that significantly reducing or abolishing APD would provide an immediate and lasting boost to growth and not cost the Exchequer a penny! In light of this new analysis, we are campaigning for urgent Government action on APD.
