The Government needs to petition the European Commission to relax State-aid rules to help regional airports like Knock and Donegal to develop and expand. 
 
That’s the call from Sinn Fein’s MEP Chris MacManus. He was speaking in the European Parliament where MEPs are voting this week on whether to keep some pandemic-era exceptions for the aviation sector. But Chris MacManus says those rules only benefit bigger airports. 
 
The Midlands North-West MEP argues regional airports like Knock and Donegal need more State aid support. But the EU rules need to be changed to enable that to happen.
