Reacting to news that the government may cut air passenger duty on all domestic flights, Friends of the Earth campaigner, Jenny Bates said:

“It would be completely unacceptable and even reckless if the government cut air passenger duty on domestic flights.

“These short UK trips are exactly the ones we need to avoid in the drive to cut aviation climate emissions to help prevent climate breakdown. Instead the government could invest more in our rail system, and make such trips more affordable.”
