UK Air Passenger Duty exemption

for children under 16

From 1 March 2016, the UK Air Passenger Duty (APD) will no longer apply for children who are both:

  1. under 16 (on the date of travel) when departing from a UK airport
  2. travelling in the lowest class of travel.

If you've been charged a UK APD fee for passengers aged 12 - 15 travelling after 1 March 2016, you can obtain a refund of that amount.

If your booking has been purchased through a travel agent please contact them for a possible refund. For any travel booked directly through or the Qantas contact centres you can submit a refund request; have your Booking Reference, passenger name(s) and their date of births ready when you email us.
