I wonder if the airport will consider diversification as the business model now..away from just footfall in duty free?Maybe similar to Teesside,Bournemouth,EMA, et al? Just a thought.

Pays not to have all your eggs in one basket..as has been shown these last few months?

This new business park and other nearby developments will certainly help.
