Without customers there is no business

Friday, February 20th, 2015

20141008_172502I was on one of the last passengers flying into Blackpool Airport a few months ago.

It was strange to be in an airport knowing that it was going to close a few days later. The atmosphere was happy and sad at the same time but it did make me think and remember a basic fact; that if there are no customers, then there isn’t a business. Blackpool suffered it’s ultimate fate, mainly because it had customers, just not enough of them. I know that it continues as an airfield, servicing some of the oil and gas rigs and also there is a flying school there, so there is still a little life continuing, but and airport no longer.(although I do hear that commercial flights may start again but not in the same volume and not to main international destinations.)

Companies need customers for all sorts of reasons, the main one is to stay in business.
