Skyscanner sees searches to Tunisia, Australia and Sri Lanka plummet

CEO Gareth Williams said “The decision to undertake a consultation process to review air passenger duty in March will be well received and the results eagerly awaited by both holiday makers and the travel industry who have already seen passenger tax increase four fold in the last four years with a number of additional unrelated flight taxes proposed already this year.”

“If the government proposal of taxing all flights from UK and EU airports goes ahead, consumers may have to pay up to five times more for their flights in addition to APD. Those in the South East will be worst affected, as the government have also proposed a higher air tax for passengers flying from London airports.”
