Scottish agents’ anti-APD campaign goes national

An online anti-Air Passenger Duty petition instigated by the Scottish Passenger Agents Association (SPAA) is being opened up nationwide.


Following “significant interest” and requests for access, the association has announced it is opening up a link to interested parties across the UK.


SPAA president Kevin Thom said: “The initial response to our ePetition has been heartening as we continue and re-double our efforts to raise public awareness of just how much each passenger is paying to the government in tax each time she or he flies, and we are happy to throw open access to the ePetition invitation, so that anyone who wishes to sign is able to do so with minimal effort.


“We continue to urge members to get behind this initiative, pass the petition on to colleagues and help maximise its impact by gathering as many signatures as possible.


“By working together we will send the strongest possible message to government that this draconian tax is simply unacceptable, and doing real damage to the travel sector and the wider UK economy.”
