Largely grounded route network continues to strangle UK economy Over 860,000 passengers travelled through Heathrow in July, down 88% on the previous year. This reflects a slight uplift in passenger traffic, since the start of this crisis, driven by the Government’s creation of the first ‘travel corridors’ on July 4th. More than half of these passengers, over 480,000, ventured to European destinations to make the most of the 2020 summer season, quarantine free. The vast majority of Heathrow’s route network (60%) remains grounded, requiring a 14-day quarantine on arrival, preventing the...

LBA Support Group – Statement on Leeds/Bradford Airport's Planning Application The proposed plans for a new terminal for Leeds Bradford Airport make absolute economic sense. The areas surrounding the airport will benefit from the construction of a new terminal at a time when jobs are at significant risk due to the impact of Covid-19, providing an immediate boost to the local economy. LBA serves two of the largest cities in the UK, (Leeds being the UKs 3rd largest city by population) and the majority of the wider Yorkshire region, yet it lags behind in 15th place by passenger throughput...

Kanoni Cafe, A planespotters paradise!

"For the most relaxing plane spotting head to the Kanoni Cafe in Kanoni which is the end of the line for the Blue Bus number 2A (I think) from Corfu Town. It is great for watching the approach over the sea and the landing on the single airport runway. I think they have moved the town buses since we were there so not certain where they run from from now (was San Rocco Sq I think) but the fare is only about 1/2€ and is even cheaper if you buy a strip of tickets from a Periptero (kiosk) rather than from the driver. (All info from about 6 years ago) Very atmospheric and cheap too. Went there every evening when we were last there".....

What does the future hold for CWL...?

"Having thought about what the future holds for CWL, their first priority must be the return of Paris, Dublin, and Belfast, as Jerry mentioned above, Loganair have built up their services at BHD, could they be persuaded to operate a route to CWL? If Air France didn't want to operate the Paris route from CWL, perhaps Eastern could give it a try, also the Dublin route if there are no others interested. If Eastern were to base a second J41 at CWL, it would be the ideal aircraft to operate to CORK and JERSEY and perhaps build up the frequency on those routes. There is certainly a good opportunity for them to establish themselves at CWL in the future, that is of course if they are still in existence after the end of the pandemic. ".....

Epic Failures...?

"He is preparing for the fake election, the one he postpones indefinitely just to remain the bestest president ever. Meanwhile, he obliterates Iran, invades N. Korea, sells Alaska to his mate Putin and buys Scotland to create a 51st state. Expect the unexpected with that man, entertaining and dangerous, but expect a full toothache from our own leaders, dull enough to send a person into a coma.

The future of Virgin Atlantic, your views?

" Virgin are now doing what they should have done in the first place and are obliged to do under the governments Covid Corparate Financing Scheme. That is explore normal commercial financing options before applying to the government scheme, do that and HMG can make an informed decision. The likes of Wizz UK and Easyjet have indicated that they qualify for loans up to £300m and £600m respectively based on there credit ratings and presumably followed the correct procedure. The whole point of the government scheme is to support companies operating within the UK economy and the jobs of people within the country, under these circumstances it doesn't really matter who owns the company as so much of our economy is multi national anyway."......
