Don't you just love the "job creating" quote, when they have just directly been responsible for 800 people losing their jobs, and indirectly probably another 1500.
The hypocrisy is unbelievable.

Get off the outrage bus - those quotes are from the original statement made on Monday and have been clearly stated as Peels intention since they announced the review. No surprise

I struggle to see what you can usefully use the terminal for. Given that it attracts rate liability and encourages protestors to campaign for compulsory purchase, I could easily see it being demolished quite quickly.

Timmy…can I ask what your next project is please?

Government could do with a little bit of sage at this time?

Hope it’s not my airport! 😀

Many been given notice this morning including all fire service.

Last operational shift for them on 22nd November.

Leaving 2excel and NPAS without fire cover.

PEEL are nothing short of ruthless.

Ruthless!! All planned down to the last detail it seems!

Flew out of DSA to Krakow this morning. Terminal
busy and flight full.

Nothing but praise for the staff who are under incredibly difficult circumstances while keeping the show going and remaining as professional as ever.

A superb asset to a superb airport.

August stats are out and the airport handled 160,000 pax in a month. I think thatís some sort of record? 921,000 year to date which is off their high of 1.4m but still. My mind boggles that the airport isnít viable at these sorts of numbers?

How many of those might have been trips postponed from the pandemic?
How much revenue do those passengers generate for the airport? Does a Wizzair passenger buy car parking and spend heavily in the departure lounge?
