Flying High? How Competitive is Air Passenger Duty? – March 2016

March 7th, 2016

A new report, produced by Steer Davies Gleave and commissioned by BATA, which analyses and assesses Air Passenger Duty (APD). The report provides background information on UK APD, including historical trends and international comparisons, as well as context on taxation of other public transport modes in the UK. The report also presents an analysis of how Scotland would benefit from the commitment made by the Scottish Government to halve APD from 2018, following devolution of the tax.

Whoops! There was an error.
