Air passenger duty cut ‘makes a mockery of climate commitments’ - Campaign for Better Transport responds

9 March 2021

Responding to plans to cut air passenger duty, Paul Tuohy, chief executive of Campaign for Better Transport, said:

“This is enormously disappointing, especially coming a week after a rail fare rise and fuel duty freeze, and makes a mockery of our climate commitments. The government’s own green agenda is veering badly off course and without a rethink it threatens to undermine all its previous efforts to tackle carbon emissions.”
