The Baltic Air Charter Association has called for the newly elected UK government to act quickly in implementing new aviation policies. In particular, anomalies in APD, runway capacity, border control and RAF Northolt need to be urgently addressed as they are placing many UK aircraft operators at a disadvantage.

UK aviation provides and supports hundreds of thousands of jobs and delivers an essential service to a huge proportion of the world population. Another increase in the rate of APD from April 1st and the ongoing debate about runway capacity at the London airports are just two examples of how politicians are not helping the industry.

BACA chairman Tony Coe comments: “Now is the time for clear, forward-looking policies regarding the future of aviation in the UK. We have waited far too long for recent governments to take action and I urge the new administration to act quickly on all matters.”
