Newquay coup as Scandinavian Airlines announce flights
  • 1,219
  • 12
Well, I bet few people saw that coming. That's certainly a coup for the airport. According to another website the CPH-NQY route begins on 28 June. There are no details of frequency or duration of the service. In the past SAS has operated short season summer routes from Stockholm to Bristol from the end of June to mid-August. I wonder if SAS sees this primarily as a route for Danish tourists to visit Cornwall along the lines of the Eurowings routes from Dusseldorf, Berlin and Stuttgart.

Brexit
  • 17,137
  • 473
Leave meant many different things to different people at the time of the 2016 referendum and for many Leave voters it meant something entirely different to the governments own interpretation of Leave which is what Teresa Mays deal is. The Conservative government itself is split for exactly the same reason as they interpret the vote in a different way. That was the biggest problem with the In or Out option as the vote didn't mention things like the Good Friday agreement. The Leavers quickly start dropping off when out means x, y or z. Remain means just one thing.

Time To Modernise LBA Passengers at Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA) have suffered a poor experience for too long and it is time to bring it into the 21st century and modernise, say airport bosses. LBA’s plans for a replacement terminal, submitted to Leeds City Council in May, propose the construction of a modern, three floor, 34,000 sq. mt. building on an alternative site within the airport’s boundary. If approved, the new state-of-the-art terminal building, designed by leading architects, would deliver a passenger experience beyond what is achievable in the existing terminal, built in...

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. ".....

Travel and Airline Industry recovery from Covid-19, your views?

" I dont think people realise how serious this all is, and when the lockdown ends country by country which will take a fair time who is going to fly whilst ever this virus is about which it will be, and even when a vaccine is created the virus will be around some time plus the good old media will still be in full swing scaring us all! From what im seeing I feel believe it or not jet2 are the strongest in all this financially plus remember if this does continue where does jet2 originate from, dart group,channel express so plenty of experience in the freight sector which we most definitely require at the moment. Can anyone give anymore upto date info on jet2 financial pos?"......

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."......

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.

A runway extention for Bristol...?

"It's certainly physically possible to extend the runway at the eastern end of the airfield although any type of extension would require the A38 to be dropped into a 150-metre long tunnel, and it's likely that even the most modest option would impact in some way on Felton Common which is beyond the A38. In its current master plan, pubished in 2006, the airport set out a number of options for extending the runway, all at the eastern end of the airfield - the land beyond the western end of the runway falls away significantly and any extension there would require major civil engineering. Although the promised new master plan has not materialised despite public consultations that began two years ago the airport has already said that a runway extension is not being considered. Presumably the reasons it gave in 2006 for maintaining the status quo are still in place.".....
