Airlines reacted angrily to Chancellor George Osborne's refusal to use his latest Budget to cut Air Passenger Duty.
Travel website, TravelMole, reports that in a joint statement, the chief executives of British Airways' parent IAG, easyJet, Ryanair and Virgin Atlantic said the planned rise in APD "beggars belief".

"These rises in Air Passenger Duty show the emptiness of rhetoric on boosting exports to emerging economies and building the most competitive tax system in the world.
