The Government has limited the rise in air passenger duty (APD) to inflation over the period 2010-11 to 2012-13. Budget 2012 set out rates from April 2013, which will also only rise by RPI, ensuring that level of APD will remain constant in real terms.

The 2011 consultation gathered extensive views and evidence from stakeholders, which included views on the impact of APD. Over 500 responses were received from a wide range of stakeholders. The Government published its response to the consultation, including a summary of views received, on 6 December 2011.
