Airline Handling Agent Servisair today informed management at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) that it would be ‘business as usual’ despite the failure to resolve the industrial dispute with some of its staff based at the Airport, resulting in industrial action commencing on Thursday 20th August.

The handling agent has reassured the Airport that robust contingency plans already in place will mean that passengers flying with those airlines who use Servisair at Liverpool, will not be inconvenienced during this dispute. Talks between the GMB Union and Servisair are expected to continue to try to resolve the dispute.

Of the daily passenger throughput at LJLA, half of Airport passengers travel with airlines, including easyjet, who use alternative handling agents to Servisair and who are not involved in this dispute.

Andy Gower, Airport Director at LJLA commented, "Naturally we are disappointed that this planned industrial action appears to be going ahead, however the reassurances we have been given by the handling agent involved, means that we expect those passengers whose airline uses Servisair, to be able to get away on flights without any problems".
