SCC comment on UK Government proposals to reduce Air Passenger Duty

Updated: Mar 23

Responding to the UK Government launch of a consultation on proposals to reduce the cost of Air Passenger Duty (APD) on domestic flights, Dr Liz Cameron, Chief Executive of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said:

“Any moves to reduce the charges on domestic flights is fantastic news. The Scottish Chambers of Commerce Network has long been asking for the removal of APD and we are pleased to see the UK Government picking this up and progressing with it.

“If we are serious about boosting inward investment, not to mention supporting a tourism industry devastated by the pandemic, we need to act on this now.

“Further, the removal of APD would show Scotland is open for business. Airports in Scotland face an existential threat as a result of Covid-19 and efforts must be made to ensure they remain competitive in a global marketplace in order so they can continue to support trade and Scotland’s links to the world.”
