Redundancies made at Edinburgh Airport

We are saddened to learn that Edinburgh Airport, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, have let a third of their staff go.

Lothian MSP Miles Briggs said, “Edinburgh Airport have had no choice but to make these redundancies, because of the impact of Covid-19 on the aviation industry, and my thoughts are with employees who will be made redundant through no fault of their own.

“These job redundancies reinforce the importance of investing in the South East of Scotland to grow the economy and create more job opportunities.

“Employees who are being made redundant must be fully supported to find new roles and develop new skills for career changes until the aviation industry recovers.”
