Airport Operators Association APD MPs survey
Survey of 150 MPs on their attitudes towards Air Passenger Duty, and the relationship between aviation and tourism

A new AOA poll of MPs highlights the support for the reduction of Air Passenger Duty (APD) across the UK, in the event of the Scottish Government reducing the tax in Scotland by 50%.

The survey found that:

  • Three in five (60%) MPs say they support proposals to apply the same rates of APD across the whole of the UK, in the event of the Scottish Government reducing the tax in Scotland by 50%.
  • MPs from both parties support proposals to apply the same rates of APD across the whole of the UK, in the event of the Scottish Government reducing the tax in Scotland by half (64% Conservative; 59% Labour).
