Saad Hammad, the chief executive officer of Flybe, said that the Treasury had overlooked the way in which APD has disadvantaged regional travellers on a per mile basis in comparison to those travelling short-haul to Europe, and particularly those travelling long-haul.
The airports, which also include Newcastle, Birmingham and Bristol have commissioned new research into the costs of devolving APD, which states that without policies to mitigate the effects of APD cuts in Scotland and Wales, English regional airports could see their passenger numbers fall by around 2.
Should the North East Combined Authority bid for APD control as part of its devolution submission to the Government, the responsibility could blow an estimated PS45m hole in council funds at a time when leaders are already contemplating huge budgets cuts.
A cut in APD will result in rises in other taxes - more jobs means more income tax, more tourist spending equals higher VAT.
APD turned to Red Hat Consulting to help update its proprietary ecommerce platform and lead the design, implementation, testing and production of eLink(TM) Gateway, APD's cloud-based, proprietary Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution for building, implementing and maintaining customized direct URL and punchout catalogs for the products and services of a company's preferred suppliers.
The publication, which outlined recommended new powers for Wales, explains that the next Westminster government will consider the case and options for devolving APD to the Assembly.
It adds: "In advance of this, there will be a review of potential options to mitigate the impacts of APD devolution on regional airports.
Following Chancellor George Osborne s decision to abolish APD for under-12s from May and the devolution of the power to cut APD in Scotland to the Scottish Parliament, Ryanair is urging the UK Government to axe the tax for all UK customers.
But Ms Bates confirmed that airports like Newcastle, which is campaigning against devolution of APD, would not be the Scottish Government's responsibility and someone else would have to deal with the impact.
But Bristol are simply missing a vital point in claiming that a devolving of APD to the Welsh Government - which could only be used to reduce the tax so making Cardiff Airport more attractive to airlines - would be unfair and anti-competitive.
Those on ultra long-haul flights to destinations such as Australia and south east Asia pay even more in APD.
Their research shows that scrapping APD would lead to an increase in travel, adding PS16billion to the UK economy in the first three years and creating up to 60,000 extra jobs by 2020.
