LONDON - Britain is working on additional measures to help an aviation sector battered by the COVID-19 pandemic, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said on Wednesday when he was asked if air passenger duty tax could be lowered.

"We are working on a whole range of measures with the aviation sector," he told Sky News.

He said he could not confirm whether the tax would be changed, as any announcement would be made by the finance minister. "But I can say I have been working very closely with the aviation sector, there have been billions of pounds in various different ways (...) and there are more things of course coming down the line," he said.
