Background: The UK Air Passenger Duty is an excersise tax which is charged on each passenger (adults) onboard an aircraft with a MTOW of more than 5,7 tonnes (12,500 lbs) departing the United Kingom. The APD is divided in distance bands where the duty rates depends on destination and travel class. The APD is applicable on both charter (non-scheduled commercial) flights and private non-revenue flights.
There are four destination bands - A "domestic" band for flights to destinations in England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland, and international bands A, B & C for all other destinations. These bands are distance based – from London to the final destination country’s capital city.
|Domestic Band (From 1 April 2023)||England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland|
|Band A||0-2000 miles|
|Band B||2001-5500 miles|

UK APD can be implemented in your Pricing Profile(s)
All four UK APD bands are supported and available as optional line item(s) to include in your pricing profile. Once the UK APD line items has been added in your pricing profile the applicable destination band and rate will automatically be applied (per passenger) to your Avinode prices for trips from & within United Kingdom. The system will recognize a trip's distance (or destination for the domestic band) and add the applicable rate by default.
The line item(s) has to be added to your desired active pricing profiles. Once added you only have to enter the actual rate of your aircraft to the line item. Read more about the APD and rate types here.
