Staff at Ireland West Airport Knock  have been temporarily laid off, as the airport will suspend operations from next Monday 30th March.

Ryanair is suspending all flights to and from Ireland West Airport Knock from tomorrow evening, due to Covid-19, and from next Sunday, Aer Lingus is suspending its Knock-Gatwick service.

Following the confirmation from both airlines that they're suspending services, operations at the Mayo airport will be temporarily suspended from next Monday until further notice.

Managing Director of Ireland West Airport Knock Joe Gilmore told Midwest News that they have had to place up to 160 staff on temporary lay-off from next Monday, in order to safeguard the longterm future of the airport, and the health and welfare of staff, but he's looking forward to the airport reopening after this crisis.
