The recently released UK budget has come under fire as it was revealed that long haul flights are going to get more expensive with a hike in APD on long haul flights.
The new budget has Air Passenger Duty set to rise in line with inflation, however many in the travel industry have slammed this move as the sector still pushes to recover to pre-pandemic levels.
Flights to destinations to the Middle East and transatlantic journeys will see APD rise to nearly £100.
For destinations less than 2,000 miles away, APD goes up from £13 to £14.64.
Air Passenger Duty for short haul international flights will remain unchanged, while the rate of domestic APD will rise slightly to £7.
