Bournemouth Airport sale ‘to be announced imminently’

RUMOURS are circulating at Bournemouth Airport that an announcement is imminent about it being sold.

The talk comes after it was revealed that Sir Peter Rigby, chairman of a company which owns several UK regional airports, had been seen visiting the site.

It was suggested that staff will be told about a sale later today, Friday, although the Echo was later told that this meeting had been delayed.

The Echo revealed earlier this month that Sir Peter Rigby, one of Britain’s richest men, had been seen arriving at Hurn by helicopter and touring the airport site.
