The news emerged as the International Air Transport Association (Iata) called for urgent government assistance and warned that airlines custodia samsung j5 6 portafoglio would lose $252bn (215bn) in revenues in 2020 more than double its “worst custodia samsung note 2 n7100 case” forecast two weeks ago.
UK based airports which are still operating cargo flights and repatriation services warned they may have to shut down temporarily following the Treasury’s custodia per samsung galaxy tab e 96 decision on Tuesday afternoon.
The chancellor, Rishi Sunak, wrote to airline and airport executives on Tuesday reiterating the measures he announced on Friday to support jobs and industry across all sectors, including paying the bulk of staff wages and deferring some rates and tax payments.
His letter said that “as a last custodia a40 samsung originale resort” there could be discussions with individual firms after those measures had been taken into account but made clear that, for now, he does not share the aviation industry’s view that it is a special case.
The government’s view of the sector custodia tastiera samsung is custodia magnetica samsung s9 plus understood to have been hardened by the decision of airlines including easyJet to continue with planned dividend custodia samsung galaxy ace 4 silicone payments to shareholders. EasyJet said it had a legal obligation to proceed with a custodia samsung galaxy a 5 2015 171m custodia samsung galaxy a 40 payout, which will give the largest shareholder, Stelios Haji Ioannou, another 60m windfall.
Sunak warned that “taxpayer support would only be custodia tab samsung 7 pollici possible if all commercial avenues have been fully explored, including raising further capital from existing investors”.
He also said the government would have to consider “equitable and fair treatment of businesses across the [aviation] sector”, a factor custodia a libro per samsung j6 2018 that custodia samsung galaxy note 2 gtn7100 could scupper any negotiations or bailouts for specific airlines.

Scheduled passenger traffic is virtually gone from many airports, with even cover per samsung galaxy j3 custodia Heathrow mainly seeing repatriation flights and cargo services.
Dee said airports were taking unprecedented steps to safeguard staff and operations through the crisis, and some were considering shutting down for a period.

She added: “While countries across Europe have recognised the vital role airports play and are stepping into the breach, the UK government’s decision to take a case by case approach with dozens of UK airports is simply not feasible to provide the support necessary in the coming days.”
Airports have urged the deferral of other taxes, and the easing of regulatory costs and constraints, while global flight restrictions continue.
