Sign a petition against David Cameron’s Air Passenger Duty, free the skies!
In the last six years, Air Passenger Duty (APD) – the 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 of David Cameron has firm plans to keep on raising APD every year to 2017.
How can you help? Just take a few seconds to visit www.afairtaxonflying.org 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.
