The briefing document I saw included :

"A Frequent Flyers Levy would be a much fairer tax.

The proposal is to allow every person one tax-free flight a year (if they want to take it). Then the tax would rise with every additional flight taken in the year. The tax on a second flight would be around 20 rising to 400 on a 9th flight.

How would it impact on demand?

There would be growth but insufficient to require a new runway in the UK for the foreseeable future.

How would it impact on passengers?

Most people would benefit: 85% of the British public would benefit: Last year:

52% of us took no flights

22% took one flight

11% took 2 flights

Less than 15% of people took 3 or more flights

15% of people took 70% of flights. These are the frequent flyers....."
