Steve Szalay, operations director at Southampton Airport, said: “This is a decision that has not been taken lightly and demonstrates the extremely difficult conditions we are currently operating in.

“Prior to the onset of the pandemic, passenger numbers at the airport fell by 90% due to the collapse of Flybe.

“COVID-19 has exacerbated this situation further with the suspension of a number of routes and reduced passenger demand due to the travel restriction currently in place.    

“This is an extremely challenging period for the entire aviation industry, however, Southampton Airport will continue to support critical lifeline services Monday to Friday including those to the Channel Islands.”
