Stop cutting Air Passenger Duty

Stop cutting Air Passenger Duty

Reverse the decision to offer any Government/ Taxpayer Subsidy to FlyBe and instead increase Air Passenger Duty to discourage frequent flying.

Why is this important?

This is important because this continues to make a form of Transport which has by far the highest carbon footprint a relatively cheap option.
The Government should be subsidising and investing heavily in road and rail based public transport if there is any chance of the UK reaching a carbon neutral target by 2030.
