A third of Menzies workers at the airport could be sacked after Flybe fell into administration, Unite the union has warned. 

Unite has written to the Scottish Government's Transport Minister, after being informed 100 jobs are at risk because of the collapse of the regional airline.

Pat McIlvogue, Unite's regional industrial officer, said: "We are calling on the company to refrain from confirming any redundancies to allow for discussions to take place between the Scottish Government, trade unions and the industry.

"We have written to the Transport Minister, Michael Matheson, requesting an urgent meeting to coordinate a response to these worrying developments facing the aviation industry in order to safeguard hundreds of Scottish jobs.”

Flybe has told customers not to travel to airports after all flights were cancelled with immediate effect, following the company going into administration. 

The company said a drop in demand due to fears over coronavirus "made a difficult situation worse" for the failing airline.

Menzies Aviation has been contacted for comment.
