Policy Adviser, Marianne O’Sullivan:

‘’Aviation has been heavily impacted by public health restrictions and the Government today have published the details of the Airport Support Scheme. Whilst the scheme offers some welcome support, more is needed to protect jobs and connectivity. Additional measures include the extension of the Airport Support and Job Retention Schemes as well as a 12-month suspension of Air Passenger Duty to protect our regional airports which will be essential in the North East’s economic recovery’’
