Scrap Air Passenger Duty.


A study by Edinburgh Airport has suggested that the Scottish Government’s pledge to cut the tax by 50% could generate up to 3,800 jobs by 2020 and bring an economic benefit of £200m per year. Reform Scotland believes that by going further and scrapping the tax altogether, the economy will benefit even more, a stance shared by the Scottish Chambers of Commerce. We believe that such a policy change would also help improve Scottish businesses’ international reach.
