Chancellor Rishi Sunak has announced a lower rate of air passenger duty.

Flights between England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland from April 2023 will be subject to a new lower rate of air passenger duty.

He said: “This will help the cost of living, with nine million passengers seeing their duty cut by half.

“It will bring people together across the UK.

“And because they tend to have a greater proportion of domestic passengers, it’s a boost to regional airports like Aberdeen, Belfast, Inverness and Southampton.”

Financial support for regional airports was also announced.

The extended support will be for six months.
