Bishop’s concern about Monarch Airlines collapse
5th October 2017
The Bishop of St Albans, Dr Alan Smith, has spoken about the collapse of Monarch Airlines.
He said: ‘The news of the collapse of parts of Monarch’s business has come as a shock, and my prayers and concern are for those whose jobs and livelihoods are now at risk, as well as for those whose travel and return to the UK has been disrupted.
“The uncertainty of business and employment is something we have to live with, and it is important now that those affected are supported and that communication with them is clear and helpful.
“We have an excellent chaplaincy team at Luton airport and the parishes locally are also very much engaged with those whose work and lives are being affected.”
Luton Airport’s Chaplaincy can be contacted via the London Luton Airport website.
