On Wednesday morning Ryanair announced that they maintain their plans to close down its base at Moss Airport Rygge, with the consequence that the entire airport will be closed down on November 1. Around 500 employees at the airport will be affected.
– Several hundred of our fellow workers live in uncertainty about their work and income at Moss Airport Rygge. They need our support!  a press release from LO states.
