Flybe announcement a blow to the economy – Archibald

Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has said news that airline Flybe has entered administration is devastating news for workers and their families. 

The East Derry MLA said: 

“News that airline Flybe has entered administration is a huge blow to the local economy. 

“The majority of flights leaving Belfast City Airport are operated by Flybe and used daily by people who travel between Belfast, England and Scotland to work and study.  

“My thoughts are with Flybe workers and their families today who will be left devastated and plunged into uncertainty about what the future holds for them. 

“Up to 2400 workers will be made redundant on the back of this announcement – it’s a sad and difficult time for them.”

Teachers deserve a fair pay deal that reflects their incredible work and commitment to our young people.

@ChrisHazzardSF joined with a delegation of teachers from the North to hand in a letter to the British Prime Minister calling for an immediate pay deal for workers.

Education workers deserve fair pay & working conditions.

With one party’s boycott of the Executive ongoing, the British Govt must urgently bring forward a pay deal for workers here.

We need an Executive restored now, & all parties working together to support workers & services.

In any other walk of life the person presiding over such a colossal failure would be sacked. The Minister for Justice is clearly not the person to restore people's confidence in public safety and she should resign.
