Weston Airport Closure to Continue until August

As we reported in March, Weston Airport ceased operations on Friday 20th March in response to government COVID-19 restrictions. At the time, the airport was expected to be closed for approximately two months but in a NOTAM issued this week, that has now been extended to 31st July at 1730z. It’s disappointing to see the biggest general aviation airport in the country remaining closed throughout the busy summer period as most other airfields have gradually restarted operations.
