Travel from UK: Air Passenger Duty* (APD) for children & young persons

 

Just a REMINDER should some airlines “still work on their system” and the airline is still charging you. 

UK Air Passenger Duty has been abolished for children aged 2 to 11 years when travelling in economy class, on all flights departing from UK airports on or after 1 May 2015. In addition to this, UK Air Passenger Duty has been abolished for young persons aged between 12 and 15 years when travelling in economy class, on all flights departing the UK on or after 1 March 2016.

Air Passenger Duty still applies to all bookings in Premium Economy Class, Business Class and First Class.

Also, if you have made a booking prior to the due date but the flights are consumed after 1 May 2015 you also will be eligible to get a APD tax refund. If you are affected get in touch with your respective airline if booked directly with the airline or get in touch with your travel agent if booked via a travel agent. Of course, if you need help simply get in touch with us anytime.
