Finance Act 2012

Part 1 of Schedule 23 - Northern Ireland direct long haul rates of duty from 1 November 2011 to 31 March 2012

33.This rate reduction was introduced in recognition of the unique position of Northern Ireland's airports, and means that the carriage of passengers on certain flights taking off from an airport in Northern Ireland will attract the short haul rate of APD.

34.These flights are those where the journey is direct to long haul destinations or, in a case where there are one or more flights involved, the first connection is made in a long haul destination.  For these purposes long haul destinations are those not listed in Part 1 of Schedule 5A.

35.This rate reduction applies to flights that take off from Northern Ireland for the period beginning on or after 1 November 2011 to 31 March 2012.
