Every day, the situation around COVID-19 changes, and consequentially the actions being taken change at the same rate. Due to the constantly developing situation created, we will continue to update our clients of actions we’re taking as soon as possible.
As of Monday 23rd March, the UK has understandably been placed on more restrictive measures, with workers only being permitted to continue to work where it is to be considered essential. Due to the services we carry out on behalf of our industry friends and in support of all air transport, we are continuing to operate as an essential service.
During these turbulent times both economically and socially, the safety and welfare of our staff (the Oakenhurst Family) has and always will be our first concern. This combined with the appropriate social distancing regulations enforced by the British Government have led us to operating on a reduced workforce. This means we can ensure that our staff can remain safe and healthy, reducing the strain on the National Health Service (NHS) and the overall spread of COVID-19.
We’re pleased to say that all of our workshops are operating and abiding by social distancing guidelines, and we encourage any customers with queries or concerns to contact us as soon as possible.
As stated in our previous statements, the COVID-19 pandemic is going to have a lasting effect on the aviation industry as well as many other sectors. Therefore, it is crucial that we all move through this as a family, helping one another throughout.
Stay safe everyone,
The Oakenhurst Team
