Ryanair calls on UK Government to scrap APD

Ryanair has called on the UK Government to scrap Air Passenger Duty (APD) for all air passengers.

The airline claims that the VAT received from additional tourist spending would far outweigh any revenue lost by axing the tax.

Since the Irish Government axed its own APD in April 2014, Ryanair has launched 21 new routes to/from Dublin, Knock and Shannon airports, which, the airline claims, will this year increase passenger numbers travelling through the Irish airports by 1.7m.
