CITY VIEWS: WILL AIR PASSENGER TAXES DAMAGE UK TOURISM?

CHING MAN | MIZUHO
“I think they will, yes. For the average tourist, budgets are tight as it is! Personally I will stay in the UK this year unless it is essential to travel.”

JACK STOCKTON | JM GROUP
“Probably not, because flying from Europe is cheap. Long-haul flights are expensive anyway, so if you're making that commitment, the tax isn't going to make much difference. ”

ALEX GREEN | DEVONSHIRES
“There is certainly a chance of it damaging UK tourism, as the number of people choosing to stay home is rising as it is, given the current economic climate.”
