Lufthansa’s new service to Frankfurt takes off from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, bringing the return of global connectivity for the city for the first time in over 10 years.
The Scottish Government is taking forward plans for a Scottish replacement to Air Passenger Duty (APD) and today launched a consultation seeking views on how a Scottish replacement to APD should be structured and operated from 1st April 2018, which will subsequently reduce the tax by 50%.
Responding to the draft legislation a Liverpool John Lennon Airport spokesperson commented,
“The Airport welcomes the opportunity to participate in this consultation and will continue to highlight that APD remains a barrier to airline growth in the UK as has been recognised by the Scottish Government.
If there are to be cuts in APD of 50% at airports in Scotland, then these need to be matched elsewhere across the UK. We would hope that sense will prevail and that the UK Government would subsequently ensure a consistent charging regime across all parts of the UK, so as not to put airports such as Liverpool at a disadvantage compared to those in Scotland, and to airports across Europe where aviation taxes are already significantly lower than in the UK.”
A new service by PLAY airlines will connect Liverpool with Reykjavík and four eastern US cities.
A £2m investment is now underway to introduce new passenger facilities that will also create a further 200 jobs at the airport.
