The odd flight is still scheduled to operate, and some staff will be paid an hourly rate for the time needed to cover these flights.

Not sure what the long term plan is at this stage.
the airport has said elsewhere.

We'd like to clarify the situation re this forum post. We can confirm the Aviation industry globally is facing significant challenges and we are currently working hard on our business continuity plans with our people are at the forefront of those plans. The terminal building and runway are fully operational. As per our statement yesterday, there has been disruption to flights at DSA - as is the case at all UK Airports but none of the Airport's staff have been put on leave. Furthermore, there is no member of staff across the airport with the name of the forum contributor. Please follow our official social media channels for updates.
