Shane Wood started this petition to Rishi Sunak MP

Aviation is vital to the UK economy, and supports over 230,000 jobs directly and over 1 million indirectly in the UK. To date, the industry has received no sector specific support from the UK government, which has already led to 10's of thousands of job losses and livelihoods ruined in the current climate of uncertainty and restrictions surrounding Covid-19.

With the England lockdown and travel ban taking effect on 5th November, an already bleak winter for travel is now seemingly unsurvivable for many firms. I am calling on the Chancellor to provide sector specific support to protect the UK aviation industry from collapse. Governments across Europe and Asia have provided support to their industries, and the US have provided a $55 billion dollar package to support their industry through the worst crisis in its history.

Without urgent action being taken, we risk losing our world leading position in aviation and the decimation of the aviation industry in the UK as we know it. 10's of thousands more jobs are already at risk. The Chancellor must act now to save jobs and companies across the UK, and provide a sector specific support package to the aviation industry to help them through the winter and onwards, or risk the collapse of the industry.
