TAM Airlines absorbs APD increase for UK flights

TAM Airlines has chosen to absorb the increase in Air Passenger Duty (APD), which takes effect on 1 April, for all its passengers that had booked and paid in advance for their tickets prior to the British Government’s Autumn Statement of 29 November 2011.
 
From London Heathrow, TAM Airlines flies direct to both Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, which currently fall into band C for APD, while many onward services to Argentina, Paraguay, Chile, etc, fall into the highest band, D. APD is applied to all flights outbound from the UK. There is no equivalent tax levied by the Brazilian authorities.
 
The rate of APD on flights to Brazil imposed by the British Government will be as of 1 April £81 in economy class and £162 in all other cabin classes. The rate for destinations from the UK in band D will be £92 and £184. As recently as 1994 the cost of APD on flights to South America was £10.
