The aviation sector is suffering the devastating effects of Kovid-19. This is the case of London’s Heathrow Airport which fell in red in 2020. It incurred a huge loss of over 2.3 million euros.
Last year, global containment measures and travel restrictions at London airport reduced their impact. Passenger numbers fell by 73% and turnover fell by 62%, mainly due to lower cargo volumes.
In this difficult context, airport management is asking the British government for further assistance. She recalls that Heathrow has benefited from aid only for the purpose of maintaining employment and no reduction or suspension of tax on companies such as other airports or businesses.
