Companies Submit Tenders For Airport Improvements

St Mary's Airport

Fourteen companies have submitted tenders for the project to improve facilities and services at St Mary’s airport.

The work will include investigating the potential for route subsidies, similar to those enjoyed by the Scottish Isles.

The successful applicant will also have to identify how technology could reduce flight delays and cancellations, due to crosswinds or impaired visibility.

Not all of the applicants are from the United Kingdom but all come from within the European Union.
