Taxation is a matter for HM Treasury (HMT) which includes consideration of a frequent flyer levy.

Last year, the Government consulted on aviation tax reform and as part of this sought views on whether a frequent flyer levy could replace APD as the principal tax on the aviation sector.

Following the consultation, the Government published a response which outlined that it was minded to retain APD as the principal tax on the aviation sector.
