It’s not surprising, but Manchester Airports Group (MAG) is cross. It found out on Twitter that the UK government had decided to implement a travel ban over the weekend – after no discussions and without warning. Chief executive Charlie Cornish has penned an article expressing his frustration, noting that it was “shocking” that the government didn’t think to mention the travel shutdown in its press conference, underlining the airport’s belief that Whitehall has neglected aviation and the role it plays in the economy, while supporting supermarkets and other businesses that have, in fact, thrived. “This makes no sense to me whatsoever.”

MAG has been forced to make hundreds of redundancies – and the anger in this article is all too clear.
