Duty Free may be fast-tracked

The Government is reported to be considering a proposal to fast-track the reintroduction of duty free from January 1 for all UK routes to help airports and ports crippled by the dutyfree0920pandemic.
Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe and Transport Minister Eamon Ryan are considering the proposal as part of a series of measures aimed at helping the country's airports cope with the escalating financial fallout from the virus pandemic and collapse in air passenger numbers.
Ireland abolished duty free sales to the UK - in line with EU directives - 21 years ago as being incompatible with the EU Single Market.

 

Duty free sales remained for all non-EU destinations. With the UK's transition deal set to expire on December 31 after Brexit, airports have now identified duty free to the UK as a critical source of revenue generation. Ports also strongly favour the move.
The UK Treasury has confirmed duty free goods can be purchased by EU bound travellers from January 1 at departure points in England, Scotland and Wales. Northern Ireland is covered by a separate agreement with EU duty and the prospect of duty free sales remains uncertain.
