Airport Closures

At the operators meeting with the airfield this morning (Fri 21/10) we recieved more information today from the Airport on the Air Traffic Controllers situation. We were told that SERCO have recruited two new controllers and the first of these is being trained at the moment.

This is positive news and the airport management say that, given the controller passes his validation test, we will be opening up one day a weekend from the end of november and then hopefully back to fullweekends sometime in February.

We were also highly encouraged by the willingness of the airport management to work co-operatively with us to help get through this difficult period.
