Monarch owes Gib £300,000

COLLAPSED airline Monarch owed Gibraltar International Airport over £300,000 in fees when it went bust in September.

Efforts are now being made to recover the money from the company’s administrators.

It is understood that the money owed was for a combination of landing, departure and parking fees from August and September having made their final payment of previous charges on September 9.

Meanwhile, there is a great deal of anger amongst pilots that have lost their job through the collapse of Monarch according to the General Secretary of the British Airline Pilots’ Association.

Brian Strutton, of BALPA, believes there is a lot of understandable anger amongst the pilots, who “made huge pay and pensions sacrifices in 2014 to help Monarch turn itself around only to find that this was all in vain.”

He added that the pilots feel they have become sacrificed in the process of protecting the financiers and has called on the House of Commons Transport Committee to urgently investigate all the circumstances and make its findings public.
