Walsh Wants British Airways To Keep London Gatwick Flights After Coronavirus

Tweet Picks:

@Lord_Sugar Branson’s Virgin airways wants money from the UK. Question is not whether to give him money, but if the airline is worth saving. Virgin’s performance has been unimpressive. Over two decades it’s lost money but managed to cherry-pick the best routes to the US and the Caribbean.

@Oliver__Clark Some corporates are keen to get going with travel as soon as they can and IAG will assess this in relation to capacity deployed, CEO Willie Walsh says.

@Oliver__Clark Airlines that have taken state aid will be weighed down with debts that need to be repaid which will influence their future behaviour, IAG’s Willie Walsh says.

@Oliver__Clark Walsh would like British Airways to retain a “presence” at Gatwick, but that is just an opinion as consultation is live.

@TSAmedia_LisaF BREAKING: On Friday, May 8th, 215,444 individuals came through @TSA checkpoints nationwide. Exactly one year earlier, 2,602,631 people were screened at security checkpoints across the country. It’s the highest volume since March 25th.
