During Covid-19 crisis pilots are curious about aviation industry. Balpa asks for support, (British Airline Pilots Association) officers indicate that they are talking with government and airline companies.
BALPA general secretary Brian Strutton : “It is unhelpful that correspondence is leaked out of the context of discussions. It gives rise to the erroneous conclusion that there is no chance of any government help for UK airlines”.
“I’ve said before that there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution, due to the different structures and needs of each airline”.
“Each airline will need to be reviewed
to ensure a good use of tax payers money. The government will be looking at
areas such as the airline’s financial state, whether it could raise the cash in
other ways, or if it’s crucial to the UK transport system”.
“These deliberations still are ongoing so we should await the outcomes”.
“We think it would be helpful in these uncertain times for the government to confirm it is still committed to protecting the jobs of the 1.5m workers who depend on the aviation sector.”
