Reply To: Budget 2011: Osborne to unveil private jet flight taxBack to Forum
No increase to the APD, but looks like the government will try to squeeze aviation in other ways!
Hard to make a justification for the government not to tax private jet travel (what about turbo props – like the popular King Air, is this on the radar screen too?) however I in principal hate to see this ‘tax creep.’
While priviate jet travel is unfortunately not on my normal travel itineries – a couple times per year I get to ‘tag along’ with some well-placed friends. I wonder if this tax will cost them extra for having me onboard or if the tax will be per-aircraft, per flight (based on distance)?
