I can't quote any local authority statistics but several years ago the Wales Assembly Government agreed to make a loan of £5 million to the then private owners of Cardiff Airport on the basis that the owners put in a specified amount themselves. The purpose was to upgrade airport facilities. In the event the owners failed to provide their own cash so the offer from the WAG lapsed.Has this kind of infrastructure deal ever been done before between council and private ownership?
That announcement couldn't have come at a better time for the airport after last nights diversions due to fog. Hopefully some positive spin out of a bad situation for the airport marketing team!Thales UK today announces the signing of a contract to supply and install a Cat III 420 Instrument Landing System (ILS) and 415 Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) to Liverpool John Lennon Airport.
Daja-vu - I thought I was reading the Leeds "Infrastructure, Construction & Developments" thread.It probably seems an unimportant thing but the WCs have been gradualy renovated around the airport. They are now very modern looking and high tech facilities. It obviously makes going to visit the loo a more pleasant experience it also shows Liverpool Airport is improving the passenger experience.
No totally agree....smelly loo not a nice start or end to your flight !Daja-vu - I thought I was reading the Leeds "Infrastructure, Construction & Developments" thread.
As small as it is it is still relevent especially from a passengers perspective. There's nothing worse than broken, dirty smelly public conveniences.
HiI'm not familiar with the area, will this be from the same line as the Parkway?
