ANTOR's view on Air Passenger Duty
"Under the guise of environmental protection, Air Passenger Duty has multiplied in record time, 140% since 2007. There still remains no evidence to support its benefit as a green tax. We note that the Coalition Government has stated that it now regards APD as a revenue raising tax alone. We welcome plans by the Treasury to reform the tax and call for it to be structured in a fairer way that means fying can be affordable for Britons travelling abroad and for visitors to visit the UK for business or pleasure.
We believe that APD is already impeding travel to destinations of choice. We are concerned that Governments over the past twenty years have used APD as a revenue raising tool as the public remain largely unaware of how much tax they are paying. We are concerned that there has been no independent study by Government into the effects of APD on international travel and the effects it is having on the effects of destination economies overseas.
We believe Air Passenger Duty in its current form is unfair to individuals and to business. The impact of the proposed double inflation increases in 2012, will seriously weaken the UK public’s choice to travel abroad and for international communities established in the United Kingdom, from travelling to and from Britain, for both business and social needs. We believe the UK economy will be a net loser from these tax hikes but that the impacts will also be felt by the international destinations that the UK has close links with that we represent.
We are concerned that higher and higher APD rates combined with economic difficulties presented by the global economic downturn will create serious consequences not only for the UK economy but also for those economies who are heavily dependent on UK tourism.
We believe that APD is unfair because it hits the income that developing countries can receive from developing quality tourism propositions. We believe the tax is onerous because it is disproportionately large, compared to similar charges of countries within the European Union.
The Association of National Tourist Offices and Representatives (ANTOR) with global representation in the United Kingdom, and a total annual revenue contribution to the United Kingdom taxpayer approaching £100 million, is part of the Fair Tax For Flying Campaign and calls for the Chancellor, in reforming APD, to make the tax fairer.
