Air Passenger Duty (APD) is a per-passenger tax levied on flights departing from UK airports, including those between Northern Ireland and Great Britain.

At Budget, the Government announced that, from April 2023, it would introduce a new reduced domestic band of APD, covering flights between England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, in order to support connectivity across the UK.
