APD rates set to rise next year for medium and longhaul

Air Passenger Duty is to rise next year on medium and longhaul routes, while the rate on shorthaul flights will stay the same.

Starting on 1 April 2021, medium and longhaul economy travellers will pay £82 each way, a rise of £2.

Premium class passengers on medium or longhaul flights will pay £180, an increase of £4.

Airlines had called for an APD waiver, while ABTA had called for a cut in APD to incentivise travel.
