Councillor Christine Gilligan Kubo appeared on Channel 4 News to speak about the impending closure Doncaster Sheffield Airport by operator Peel Group.

She said Christine Gilligan

“Sheffield City Council signed up to Net Zero by 2030 and we have to start reducing our emissions. Airlines don’t even pay duty on airline fuel.”

“If there is going to be any more government money put into supporting the airport, this money would be better spent on improving local transport links in South Yorkshire.  That would provide jobs and will help businesses far more than continuing to subsidise a failing airport.”
