There is concern over staffing levels at the airport navigation service NATS after two recent incidents when the airfield was closed early or opened late.

The government issued a critical statement on 29 September after being advised by the MOD that the inbound easyJet flight from Bristol would be affected by the airfield closing early, and on 6 October it was due to open late, although it appears that the first flight of the day was only slightly delayed.
