Fight unfair APD

In the last six years, Air Passenger Duty – paid by airlines for each passenger departing a UK airport – has risen more than 300 per cent on many routes, while inflation has increased barely 20 per cent.

This level of increase has no justification and no international parallel. Yet the UK Government has firm plans to keep on raising APD every year to 2017.

This tax also acts as a brake on growth and jobs for the whole economy by making it more difficult for businesses to reach new markets, and making the UK less attractive to overseas visitors.

How can you help? Just take a few seconds to visit and click on “Not a UK Resident?”. This will generate an automatic letter to the UK minister responsible for APD, George Osborne, calling for action on a tax that is now far too high and inflicting real damage on the UK’s efforts to move out of recession. Add your name, send and you’re done.

This is an important campaign and I hope you will support us in it.
