The Government has agreed a revised €80m funding package for the aviation sector in recognition of the difficult winter season that lies ahead due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The plan was brought to Cabinet by Transport Minister Eamon Ryan and Minister of State Hildegarde Naughton. It includes an additional €48m in spending for airports beyond what was previously announced in the Budget last month. It includes €8.4m in further operational and capital assistance for Shannon airport.
Will this be enough?
