The Scottish Government will gain control of air passenger duty, a tax charged per passenger on flights taking off from airports, thanks to the Scotland Bill currently making its way through Parliament.
Mr Evans said control over Air Passenger Duty (APD) is a key fiscal power that needs to be devolved to the Welsh Government and added: "The development of the economy here in Wales will be better served by the Welsh Government having control over this tax.
Mr Harrison said: "We do believe air passenger duty distorts the market.
5 percent increase in Air Passenger Duty from next April, which follows the last APD increase of 8 percent that was announced earlier this year.
He said: "UK air passenger duty has been the most expensive tax of its kind in Europe and the whole point of reducing it in Scotland is to secure new direct air routes which will grow our economy.
The MPs were speaking in a Commons debate on the Scotland Bill, which is due to come into effect next year and will allow the Scottish Government to cut Air Passenger Duty.
A Commons committee has warned airports such as Newcastle would be "squeezed" if Scotland was allowed to cut or abolish the air passenger duty tax without similar changes in England.
The First Minister said the Welsh Government would also be pushing for further action on air passenger duty.
PASSENGERS on long-haul flights will benefit from an overhaul of the much-hated Air Passenger Duty.
Air Passenger Duty has risen by up to 260% for short-haul flights and 360% for long haul since 2007.
