Staff at Shannon Airport face pay cuts and temporary lay-offs as passenger numbers fall

The impact of Covid-19 on the aviation and tourism sector has lead to Shannon Airport to temporarily lay off staff as well as cutting their pay.

With passenger numbers down by 96% and with economic forecasts predicting that it could take three years before normal numbers resume, all staff earning over €30,000 face a 20% pay cut in September for the next two-and-half years.

A voluntary severance scheme is to be introduced as well as career breaks of up to three years.
