Loganair proposes closing Norwich Airport base, begins redundancy discussions

Loganair announced (03-Dec-2019) proposals to close its operating base at Norwich Airport. The airline will continue to operate from Norwich to Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Jersey, using aircraft and crews from its Scottish bases from Feb-2020. Formal discussions also commenced this week with the airline's 44 staff (pilots, cabin crew and engineers) based at Norwich, with the aim of minimising redundancies by offering positions in other parts of the Loganair network should the proposal go ahead. Loganair MD Jonathan Hinkles said: "It is beyond disappointing that we have arrived at this decision, but the financial implications left us with little choice". He added the airline has no current plans to evaluate the future of other Loganair bases. [more - original PR]
