Statement from Charlie Cornish on business support during COVID-19

This morning MAG joined other UK airports in a meeting with the Secretary of State for Transport. He restated the Chancellor’s promise to do whatever it takes to support UK airports.

MAG Chief Executive, Charlie Cornish
We welcome the Government’s commitment to providing this package for airlines and airports. It is key now for colleagues, customers and shareholders that we see specific and tangible support over the next few days.
MAG Chief Executive, Charlie Cornish

With revenues falling significantly over the coming months, airports big and small need to know exactly how the Government is going to help them. We are encouraged by the commitment from Government that support for airports will be forthcoming, and is an urgent priority. We look forward to seeing these proposals in the coming days. They should be designed to enable UK airports to play their role in helping the country’s economy recover from this crisis.
