British Government will increase one of travel’s most controversial taxes, the Air Passenger Duty Tax on April 1, 2014. A tax that will cost every Americans flying to the U.S. from London £69 per head ($113.24) up from £67 for economy class tickets.

Business and first class ADP tax will increase from £134 to £138 ($226.49). It’s bad news for the 72 percent of visitors to the UK who arrive by air. Those particular visitors account for some 83 percent of all inbound visitor spending.

The tax, which has been increased six times in the last six years, has grown over time. When it was first introduced in 1994, passengers were required to pay £5 per person to fly short-haul and £10 long distance.
