It was around 400 in 2019 - not sure what it is now but given that they were in the process of putting up an additional hanger it must be still around that number?

If 400 Ryanair personnel earn £25k on average, that's £10 million per annum into the local economy and rental fees to the airport for the hangers. If Ryanair need maintenance and passenger operations to make staying at PIK worthwhile you can see how the politicians might see a loss on the passenger side as a price worth paying.

How many jobs does the Ryanair maintenance hanger provide? Is it enough to keep sustaining the losses on their passenger movements? If not they need to send them packing.
Do you have a source for this? I've never seen PIK give a breakdown of costs per segment. They handily break down revenue, and show that half of revenue is from passenger related services, but they don't give a similar breakdown for costs.

The sad reality is Prestwick is never going to go back to the glory days. Ryanair will stay as long as itís cheap enough for them. Not to mention the current global situation, airlines are not really going to be looking to set up an additional base in Scotland anytime soon.

Would be interesting to see how much the terminal costs to run and would it be cheaper to demolish and build a smaller more modern facility.

There was discusion from #170 above onwards, based on live broadcasting from the Rural Affairs Committee at Holyrood in 2018. It was said that the losses were due to passenger operations.

Isn't the terminal a listed building thus cannot be demolished? All the lighting has been changed to energy saving lighting now, so that should save a bit of money. Do they need as many car parking spaces nowadays?

I'd doubt LED light bulbs and some parking will save it...

Well that should save them a £100 a year. Just another £4,466,900 to go :-P

Notice there has been no mention of the 5 x CAF movements in Prestwick since Friday.

Easy to slate the place when it loses a few movements but we also must remember to be positive when it appears all is not lost.
