Glasgow Airport, together with Edinburgh and Aberdeen Airports, made the case for the devolution of APD to the Scottish Parliament to the Smith Commission in November 2014.
Amanda McMillan, managing director of Glasgow Airport, said:
"We very much welcome the announcement contained in this report that Air Passenger Duty (APD) is to be devolved to the Scottish Parliament.
“APD is the highest form of aviation tax in the world, artificially depressing demand and dissuading airlines from flying to and from Scotland. Giving the Scottish Parliament full control over APD will play a major role in strengthening Scotland's connectivity and will help to boost our economy.
"It is vital that this policy move is progressed as soon as possible to ensure our tourism industry can continue to flourish and Scotland’s economy can thrive.”
