Walsh: BA ‘still committed to Scotland’


British Airways chief executive Willie Walsh said that the airline remains committed to Scotland, hours after BA announced the closure of its Glasgow Airport crew operation - its last regional base - with the potential loss of 138 jobs.

Mr Walsh, in Edinburgh to meet business leaders and First Minister Alex Salmond, said Scotland was a vital part of BA and - provided businesses and the public used its flights between Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and London - it would continue to operate them. He said closure of the Glasgow base would have no impact on its Scottish flights as they would in future be crewed by Heathrow-based staff.

Mr Walsh said Scottish staff facing losing their jobs will be given the chance to transfer to Heathrow and commute from Scotland to London, or offered voluntary severance. He blamed the economic environment for the closure of the base, saying its productivity was less than similar sites at Heathrow and Gatwick but it cost much more to run.
