Saga welcomes budget move to standardise air passenger duty

Wednesday 19 March 2014

Saga Holidays Chief Executive, Andrew Strong comments on the announcements in today’s budget to standardise Air Passenger Duty:

“For some time we’ve been campaigning for changes to Air Passenger Duty (APD) that stopped the unfair discrimination experienced by those choosing to travel to Caribbean Islands who were paying more than to travel to the US. 

 “Today the Chancellor has standardised APD which will help reduce the costs to travellers of visiting these stunning destinations, and may help boost the economies that rely so heavily on tourism from the UK.”
