Enforcing taxes has always been a topic with many arguments in different sectors. In 2014 the UK government reported the new changes they made in the Air Passenger Duty (APD). This tax increase became the highest aviation tax levied so far in this industry.

In this edition of Issues & Trends the Air Passenger Duty will be the topic of discussion. It summaries the arguments and searches for the reason why the APD should be reduced instead of keeping it the way it is right now.
