Reply To: Budget 2011: Osborne to unveil private jet flight tax

Back 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)?
