FACILITIES management company Sodexo has confirmed it has had to make a small number of redundancies following the closure of Scatsta Airport.

The company said the four redundancies related to staff who worked in the airport canteen.

A Sodexo spokesperson said: “As a result of Scatsta Airport closing, regrettably, we have been unable to find alternative employment for our four colleagues who were contracted to work in the canteen.”

Scatsta closed at the end of June as oil and gas flights moved to Sumburgh, with a host of jobs lost.

The confirmation came after Sodexo was asked if it had made any redundancies at its Shetland interests during the pandemic.

The company also runs operations at the Sella Ness accommodation facility, while it delivers services at the Shetland Gas Plant and Sullom Voe Terminal.
