1 Section 30 of FA 1994 (air passenger duty: rates of duty) is amended as follows.After subsection (4D) insert—

“(4DA) Subsection (4D) applies if—

(a) the passenger’s journey is a relevant Wales journey; and

(b) apart from subsection (4DB), subsection (2) would not apply to the journey.

(4DB) The applicable rate in subsection (2) applies to the journey instead of the applicable rate in subsection (3), (4) or (4A) (as the case may be).

(4DC) A passenger’s journey is a “relevant Wales journey”—

(a) in the case of a journey which has only one flight, if the flight begins in Wales; and

(b) in any other case, if the first flight of the journey—

(ii) is not followed by a connected flight beginning at a place in the United Kingdom or a territory specified in Part 1 of Schedule 5A.”.

The amendments made by this Part of this Schedule have effect in relation to the carriage of passengers beginning on or after 1 April 2014.
