So in the run up to COVID the airport had been in profit for 12 to 18 months and so no Scottish Govt provision was required for 2020. Two airport property sales took place, one alone securing its future, and presumably returning part of the loan. HMS Gannet operational daily, the Coast Guard too. B747Fs and B777Fs daily, next in an hour, two tomorrow, inc PPE flights. Most RAF A330s and C17s landed. The A400s aren't landing anywhere on their training flights. Ryanair MRO active daily, Chevron still storing 5 B787s. Visits from RAF, RN, Army, USAF, USN, US Army, RCAF, Kuwait, Qatar, VDA and civil in the past week or so. That's PIK at its low point due COVID, but one might suggest holding up much better than many others, and maintaining its strategic importance.
