Airport's Verdict is Challenged

Wednesday 16 June 2004 @ 23:19 - GMT

On June 15, 2004 Thomas Crosbie Media reported that a row has emerged about a recent decision involving Elton.

Some Aberdeen politicians are calling the council and airport's plans to extend flying hours for the star ''ridiculous.'' They believe that he should stay in a hotel after his Friday night show at Pittodrie, then catch a flight the following day.

Peter Noyce, the director of operations at the airport, stood his ground, calling this a ''one-off event involving one of the world's leading entertainers'' as well as ''tens of thousands of fans and ourselves.''
