Air Passenger Duty killing profits and revenue in the UK as well as the Caribbean


“People are traveling to the continent to get flights… so the Exchequer is losing revenue too”

StudioCaribe’s excellent news item on the UK’s Air Passenger Duty makes an important point: the APD is bad for the UK too, and there is a growing movement within UK business to have the tax removed entirely.

As the news item points out, the budget announcement that Air Passenger Duty will not rise this year is a small but important victory for the Caribbean – but the fight is far from over.

This is the first time we’ve taken a look at StudioCaribe’s YouTube channel and we’re very impressed with the high quality production values and their ability to tell a story. By the looks of some of the other videos they have a compelling documentary in production too – The Smelter Wars – about a community’s fight against a smelting operation that threatens their very lives.

This is one of those web surfing moments when we said to ourselves “What a great little discovery!”

It’s well worth your time to check out StudioCaribe’s videos at YouTube.
