Aviation Taskforce Recommends Extension Of Wage Subsidy Scheme For A Year.

: 07/10/2020 - 16:15

The final report of the Aviation Taskforce recommends the extension of the Temporary Wage Subsidy Scheme until June 2021.

It's due to end next month, but is expected to be extended.

The taskforce was set up by the former Transport Minister Shane Ross to examine what needs to be done to help the sector deal with the fall out from the Covid crisis.

It also says the industry should be forewarned of any changes to the proposed 'Green List' of safe countries that the government is drawing up.

It re-iterates its view that passengers travelling from those countries should have no quarantine requirements.
