How much does the UK receive in tax from the likes of Tui, Jet2, Ryanair, EasyJet, BA etc... from flights? Is it really that much less compared to a so called 'staycation'?

I think it's more to do with keeping other industries going. People using hotels, restaurants, shops etc here rather than abroad and thus safeguarding their jobs.

Of course there is a bit of swings and roundabouts because the airlines etc will have less business and thus endanger jobs in that sector, but I guess they think protecting the wider economy to be more beneficial/important to that one sector.
