Per plane duty angers Americans – good

per plane duty or ppdThe Interfering US government is trying to persuade the UK government to water down plans for its – per plane duty – replacement for Air Passenger Duty.

Per plane duty means the duty will be paid per aircraft and not per passenger, so those stinking polluting cargo planes will have to pay. (they are currently exempt).

The per plane duty taxes the plane rather than the passengers which critics have said is both fairer and more environmentally friendly.

According to a report in the Sunday Times, the US embassy in London has been privately lobbying the government to revise proposals for a Per Plane Duty.

US officials are concerned that the tax will penalise American airlines, which do not fly aircraft at full capacity, such as those that offer a first and business class cabin.,,,

However, the new government has pledged to go ahead with PPD, although no date has yet been given for its introduction.

Last week Abta called for details on the government’s consultation into the replacement for APD to be revealed before the end of this month when MPs go on holiday for the summer.

US airlines are believed to be considering legal action to try to prevent the switch to a per-plane tax.
