Coventry Editorial 6th Feb, 2021

BIRMINGHAM Airport has been given the green light to apply for a Government grant worth up to £8m to help protect jobs and business hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Airport and Ground Operators Support Scheme will help Birmingham Airport and other commercial airports across England to cover losses on costs caused by coronavirus, including airfield operations, contracted services such as airfield and runway maintenance and business rate bills.

Airports and ground handlers can apply to the scheme on GOV.UK and if successful, should receive their funding by the end of the financial year.

The financial support scheme is open for applications until February 21.
