SPAA puts weight behind latest APD campaign

SPAA puts weight behind latest APD campaign

The Scottish Passenger Agents Association has put its weight behind the Fair Tax On Flying group’s on-going campaign to change the government’s course on Air Passenger Duty.

Association president Kevin Thom said: “As we approach mid-year the Fair Tax on Flying campaign, in which the SPAA is an active partner, is about to enter a new phase – the goal to get 100,000 people to send an email to their MP outlining concerns about the current levels of APD and the damage it is doing.

“We in the SPAA support this new phase of the campaign 100% and we’re actively encouraging our member colleagues and their clients to respond positively.”

He added: “Responding couldn’t be easier – they need only click on a single web link and they’re less than a minute from sending the specially-written email supporting the campaign to their local MP.

“Meanwhile, to keep it fast and easy for our members to engage their customers we’ve prepared a template e-communication for them to use – to encourage clients to send emails to their MPs too.

“We urge every air traveller in Scotland – leisure or business – to get behind the campaign. We must keep up the pressure on the UK government to finally see sense and reduce – or better still, eliminate – this deeply damaging APD tax.”
