Belfast City Airport issues statement on APD

Following the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee calling for the scrapping of Air Passenger Duty (APD) on all flights to and from Northern Ireland, Belfast City Airport has issued the following statement:

Brian Ambrose, Chief Executive at George Best Belfast City Airport, said: “Management at Belfast City Airport welcomes all of the recommendations detailed in the report published today.

“We hope both Westminster and the NI Executive give serious consideration to providing an Air Passenger Duty solution in which the duty no longer acts as a barrier for local business or has a negative impact on UK tourism into Northern Ireland.

“All elements of the strategy would have a positive impact on the Northern Ireland economy and strengthen air links to and from this island.”
