Default Air passenger Duty Refund

Just had an e-mail from Easyjet to say we will be getting a APD refund as one of the kids will be under 12 when we fly in July next year. I was watching the Autumn statement and noticed the news about the APD for under 12's but wasn't expecting a refund. Happy days!!!!

Default Easyjet - I'm impressed!

Yes, I've just had my email too, Dunc. Easyjet tells me exactly what to do and promised a refund to my card within 28 days.

I'm impressed!

My twins turn 12 a couple of weeks before we fly next April - grrrr! Am now regretting choosing an elective Caesarian two weeks early rather than hanging on until the due date….

This from the Majorca Daily Bulletin

Quote:
Child APD cut means families can fly for less.

British families with children will fly for less from today with the removal of the UK’s air tax, Air Passenger Duty (APD), on economy flights for children under 12.
These changes will represent a welcome saving for families flying; a family of four (with two children under 12) will save £26 on flights to Europe and £142 on flights to long haul destinations such as the USA, Thailand and Australia.
Announced in the Autumn Statement late last year, following a ‘Scrap the Tax on Family Flights’ initiative by the Fair Tax on Flying campaign that includes ABTA, the cut in APD comes into effect today.
It will mean children under 12 will no longer have to pay APD on any flights taken from that date. Children under 16 will also be exempt from APD from March 2016.
However children travelling in any other class than economy remain chargeable passengers and APD is due. Most airlines and travel companies have refunded or will refund APD on flights for under 12s that were booked and paid for before the reductions were announced. Holidaymakers should contact their travel company or airline to find out more.
Mark Tanzer, ABTA Chief Executive commented: “Families flying as part of their holidays this summer will be pleased to see a reduction in their air tax. Whilst this is undoubtedly good news for holidaymakers.”
