As set out at Budget 2011, the Government will not introduce a per-plane duty at the present time, given concerns over the legality and feasibility of this approach. The Government are continuing to work with our international partners to build support for this approach. In the meantime, Budget 2012 set out air passenger duty rates for 2012-13 and 2013-14.
