Should Travellers Avoid London Heathrow’s Eco Tax?

The British Government’s Air Passenger Duty (APD) is a distance based tax imposed on passengers when they book their airfare. It could add an extra AU$90 onto the cost of an economy flight from Sydney to London. Ouch! It may also encourage travellers to move outside the UK in order to find cheaper flights that use airports such as Amsterdam Schiphol, and possibly avoid using airlines to travel to mainland Europe.
