Early last month, Coventry Airport in the UK was closed by its owners, West Midlands International Airport, after Britain’s Customs and Revenue department went to the high court seeking an order to liquidate the airport company, a move that normally results from non-payment of taxes. No information was available about when the airport might reopen, although the airport issued a statement, saying, “The Board of West Midlands International Airport is continuing its discussions to seek a resolution to the current situation. Concerned parties have been updated and confidential talks continue with an interested party. Every effort is being made to secure an early solution.” The airport was offered for sale in May and is home to the Coventry Airport Executive Jet Centre FBO, 10 charter operators, two maintenance providers and the Almat Flying Club.
