Grant Shapps – 2021 Comments on Support for Airports

The comments made by Grant Shapps, the Secretary of State for Transport, on 29 January 2021.

A thriving aviation industry has been central to the success of this country and while we recognise the testing conditions airports are currently facing as a result of the pandemic, I believe that the sector will be ready to bounce back once restrictions are lifted.

Today’s scheme is another step in the right direction, providing vital support for an industry that is raring to get back to business, once it is safe to do so.
