Reliable estimates of the value of each of the four APD rates for each scenario requested from 1997 are not available due to the restructuring of APD in 2001. However, estimates since 2001 are shown in the following table.
|EEA—Reduced rate||EEA—Standard rate||Non-EEA—Reduced rate||Non-EEA—Standard rate||Average per passenger|
|EEA—Reduced Rate||EEA—Standard rate||Non-EEA—Reduced rate||Non-EEA—Standard rate||Average per passenger|
