Speaking in support of the ‘Save Our London City Link’ campaign, Mike Bowyer, chairman of the Institute of Directors (IoD) Aberdeen, said:
“At a time when we are seeking to underpin Aberdeen’s position as a global energy centre through enhanced flight connections, the decision of British Airways to axe their Aberdeen International Airport service from London City Airport is most disappointing.
“The Prime Minister is right to recognise the significance of this link for the UK oil and gas industry. These flights serve a very real need for an efficient link between oil and gas industry centres in the Aberdeen area and offices in central London.
“Good air links were one of the reasons the oil and gas industry located in Aberdeen and they remain critical to its continued success. I hope that pressure locally will be supported by the UK government and that, together, this may persuade British Airways to revue their decision or enable another operator to take over the service.”
