Saga comments on the Chancellor's announcement about Air Passenger Duty

"Scrapping Air Passenger Duty for children under 12 will be of great benefit to families - both parents and grandparents, many of whom pay for family holidays - we know that a quarter of grandparents take their grandchildren on holiday and 42% of over 50s take their children away*.
 
Also, with the Scottish Parliament potentially being given powers to vary APD there could be a boost for Scottish airports and tourism.
 
In the future the Chancellor should consider reducing or abolishing the tax for all travellers."
