UKinbound has described the call by the Scottish Conservatives for Air Passenger Duty (APD) to be abolished on long-haul flights as a big step forward for Scotland’s tourism sector.

UKinbound chief executive officer Deirdre Wells OBE said: “The Scottish Conservatives’ policy announcement calling for the abolition of APD on long-haul flights is a positive step forward and is warmly welcomed by UKinbound. We now urge the Scottish Government to swiftly see through their proposal, in a move that will undoubtedly stimulate visitor numbers, spend, and strengthen links to Scotland.

“Westminster is looking increasingly isolated in Europe over its position on APD and we would urge the Chancellor to reconsider his Autumn Statement position, in time for the Budget.”
