Waterford Airport has confirmed that it plans to place four of its staff on temporary lay-off with effect from Monday, August 7th next.
An Airport spokesman said that until there is confirmation of the start of new scheduled air services by Aer Southeast then airport management has to protect the company.
The proposed service to London Luton, Birmingham and Manchester was suspendned after it came to light that Aer Southeast didn’t have a tour operators license.
Bookings opened on June 20th but a day later the website was taken down.
The Company recently refunded those who had purchased tickets.
Waterford Airport say they remain confident that, once new passenger services to and from the UK are in place, they will be in a position to re-instate the four personnel whom they now regrettably have to lay off.
