Aberdeen International Airport will remain operational, AGS Airports have said.
The airport operator announced that, while strict travel restrictions have understandably grounded flights, the firm will continue to operate at a reduced service – and also proposed a series of cuts to staff wages.
A limited number of services will still be available from Glasgow and Aberdeen.
This will include lifeline links to remote communities in the Highlands and Islands, helicopters for the oil and gas industry and NHS and air ambulance services.
Planned cuts include temporary pay cuts for all staff including their board and leadership team, an end to bonus payments, the option for staff to take unpaid leave and the option for reduced working hours.
Chief executive, Derek Provan, said the decision had been “difficult” to make but he was “absolutely clear” they would protect jobs and the health and wellbeing of their staff.
They will also be introducing temporary restrictions on their operations from April 1.
Mr Provan added: “Our airports will also cater for those airlines who are continuing to operate. At this stage, it is difficult to say how long these measures will remain in place, however, we will continue to follow all government advice and keep them under constant review.
“We are facing extremely challenging times and like all organisations, we have a duty of care to our staff, our business partners and to all those who use our airports. Introducing temporary operating restrictions will allow us to significantly reduce the number of staff who must travel to work.”
