    UK cuts APD on long-haul flights from Northern Ireland:)

    Air Passenger Duty has been slashed on long-haul flights departing Northern Ireland, as the UK government attempts to address competition for services from Dublin.

    Until now economy tickets on Continental flights from Belfast to New York (the only long-haul service from the Northern Irish airport) have been subject to £60 in APD charges, with business class fares subject to a £120 fee. This compares to a charge of just €3 for flights departing from Dublin.

    But from November 1 the APD on these flights will be reduced to that equal to short-haul services - £12 for economy flights and £24 for business class routes.
