Incredibly sad news for those involved:

Does this include tenants or is it just pure Airport staff. What departments would be just airport staff as so much is now third party? Still more sad news for the NI aviation sector and probably more to come over the next few weeks

Just watched this on the local news, absolutely tragic for those affected. I must admit to being surprised to the amount of directly employed airport staff, other than the obvious administrative department and marketing department, where would these jobs be? And more importantly how would you choose which department to downsize? I would have thought this isn't the time to cut your marketing people! Does anyone know if Aldergrove are still planning the big infrastructure projects they had planned? Unfortunately I think this is the start of things to come, not only in airports but across the board.

I would agree given security, retail, cleaning, handling, immigration, ATC are all contracted out or paid by Government unless they are including some of those roles such as security which will probally see the biggest reduction.

Looked and you can fly out on the 29th but (for example) can't return in or around the 12th.

All daft if the FCO remains on essential travel only

How does this work with the Government travel advice of stay at home or you die of covid from Jonny Foreigner if you go abroad or further than Milisle?
