India Keen To Assist Barbados
The British Government has announced a further ease in the air passenger duty (APD) – a move that will ease some of the burden on families travelling to the Caribbean for a holiday.
The British Government recently announced that the APD will be scrapped for children under 12 from May next year, and will be extended to the under 16 age group from 2016.
The new tax break will save a family of four flying to the Caribbean £142 approximately (BDS $445). This measure comes in the wake of an announcement in March to cut the tax on long-haul flights – to take effect in April – after lobbying by the Caribbean and the industry as a whole.
The news of the impending change, which was announced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, was welcomed by Barbados’ Minister of Tourism and International Transport, Richard Sealy, who is also the Chairman of the Caribbean Tourism Organization.
