Edinburgh Airport stays open

A consolidation plan to ensure that Edinburgh Airport remains open and operational during the coronavirus outbreak has been put into action.

 Edinburgh Airport news from Airport taxis Edinburgh

Enforced travel bans across the world have resulted in airlines dramatically reducing their schedules to and from Scotland, directly impacting on passenger numbers at the airport.

There was a small drop in passengers in February with 935,455 passengers passing through the airport, which was 0.4% behind February 2019. However, the airport is predicting a period of zero or close to zero passenger demand.

To protect as many jobs possible and ensure the airport is open throughout, the airport will implement a consolidation plan which will also form part of our recovery plan to ensure the airport is ready to return to full operations at the end of the outbreak. This plan includes:

  • Terminal consolidation with certain areas closed and the centralisation of operations
  • Deferring expenditure on some capital projects
  • Powering down high consuming energy items like elements of the baggage system and heating and cooling systems on parts of the airport that are closed
  • A number of retailers and food and beverage outlets suspending operations

Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said: “This is an unprecedented time not only for the aviation industry but for everyone as we all do what we can to ensure the health of ourselves and of those around us. For us, that includes the health of our airport. Our plan is based on keeping the airport open throughout and being there for those people who are still travelling and those staff members who are making that travel possible.

“We’re in a situation which is ever changing and as more countries enforce travel bans or special measures then it stands to reason that airlines will feel that impact and airports then feel that pain too. Unfortunately, that is happening now and we are trying to mitigate as best as we can and steer the airport through this situation in preparation for what comes next – and that is the biggest unknown in all of this.

“The airport is a facilitator of many things, that is our main role. Yes, we transport people around the world but it’s what those people bring that is the true value – they are our inward and outward tourists, they are our business leaders, they are our students and lecturers, they are our scientists and researchers. All of these things are important in the wider Scottish economy and we are doing what we can to ensure we are ready to return towards normal when the time comes.”

The airport has welcomed announcements by the UK and Scottish Governments on financial support for the sector through this situation. Gordon added: “We welcome the collaboration there has been with both governments at this critical time but we will need continued support to ensure that the aviation industry is able to play its part in the country’s economic recovery.  Along with other UK airports, we ask both governments to come together and show unity and support with the industry to help us weather this storm and come out of it still standing and ready to move forward again.”

Covid-19 travel UPDATE: Ryanair, Jet2 and Tui cancel flights

ALL flights from Ryanair Group to and from Poland have been cancelled from midnight tonight, and Jet2 planes on their way to Spain turned back mid-air.

The announcement was “in response to the decision of the Polish government to ‘lock down’ the entire country and contain the spread of the Covis-19 virus”.

In a statement, the group said: “We are contacting all affected customers by email to advise them of their options and we urge customers not to call us. This is a fast-moving and complex situation and the safety and well-being of our people and customers is our main priority. We will continue to comply fully with all WHO and EASA guidelines and we will follow any travel restrictions that are imposed.

Today Spain revealed that their number of coronavirus cases has risen by 1500 to more than 5700 in just one day.

Meanwhile, Unite the union has written to the First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, requesting the immediate establishment of a Civil Aviation Crisis Task Force as the industry faces an unfolding crisis in the aftermath of Flybe falling into administration and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Unite, as the UK’s leading civil aviation union, is warning that Edinburgh Airport and other airports across Scotland could be on the brink of collapse without support and stabilising measures from the Scottish Government. In his letter yesterday to the First Minister, Unite Scottish Secretary, Pat Rafferty called for the establishment of a Civil Aviation Crisis Task Force within 72 hours as the industry faces an unfolding crisis tantamount to that which faced the banking and financial services sector in 2007, he wrote:

Dear First Minister,

RE:  CIVIL AVIATION INDUSTRY CRISIS TASK FORCE

I am writing to you with the utmost urgency regarding the crisis facing the civil aviation industry in Scotland. Unite has been informed that hundreds of jobs are at immediate risk of redundancy in Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh Airports. The situation as you know directly results from Flybe falling into administration and the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The scale of the crisis facing the aviation industry in Scotland, and across the UK, is tantamount to the crisis facing the banking and financial sector crisis from 2007 onwards. Unite understands that several airports across the UK are on the brink of collapse which would have a devastating impact on workers and the general public. In these extraordinary times as the pandemic moves into different phases in Scotland it is incumbent upon us to bring forward contingency measures to enable airports to remain functioning and to stabilise the industry and prevent mass redundancies.

TUI also cancelled a number of holidays amid travel advice to Malta, Cyrpus and more. The announcement triggered a high volume of calls to the company which was forced to shut down its responses to social media queries.

are there many flight cancellations at Edinburgh airport ?

yes, Ryanair, Jet2 and Tui have all cancelled flights t Edinburgh
