    The as many staff as passengers is due to TFW taking this pandemic extremely seriously. May I point out that Public Transport should be for essential travel only as they are operating at lower capacity due to social distancing. Hoards of school children heading to Barry Island clogging up...

    Cardiff Airport - General Thread

    interesting question but my guess would be no. Unless they are incentivised to do so as would be cheaper to transport through other airports. or maybe they do it by ship.

    Would it still be £170m with the current restrictions? without working it out one team gaining promotion should increase the number of football charters during the 2020/2021 season.

    BAMC have used NIF to conduct cabin refits or IFE upgrades in the past also.

    They are a Boeing Gold Care approved centre for maintenance. These days they have more than enough work of their own. I think it’s very rare to see gaps in maintenance

    Ryanair

    I don’t think you can really tell by the rotation as I believe the computers will calculate the correct thrust required based on maximum take off weight. if you think of some of the shorter runways Ryanair use for example they may rotate roughly the same % proportion of the runway.

    Eastern Airways

    Be careful on an older aircraft squeezing too much in. Your actually adding more airframe/engine hours. you will also be forced to spend a lot of money on delayed flight compensation if the first flight is severely delayed. Unsure what the current dispatch reliability of the Jetstream 41 is...

    Eastern Airways

    Maybe the crew who do the early flight is the same that do the late flight on a split duty. throwing an extra flight in the middle May add too much complexity. Maybe the move to Teeside has not had the desired effect and passenger number have dropped making it unviable.

    The question is who would then replace Spencer in in his current role if he became permanent CEO of Cardiff Airport? The second question would Spencer Birns be better suited in his current role or would he be better as CEO and having someone fresh taking up the commercial role?

    Deb Bowen-Rees to step down as of 1st August 2020. Spencer Birns to assume role as interim CEO from same date.

    Doesn’t make things clear. He need to sign-up with England about relaxing the 14 days quarantine on Friday if not then say not. Quarantine is due to health issues which is a devolved matter.

    All very well the 5 mile travel rule being relaxed. The one other main obstacle is the 14 day quarantine on arrival into Wales. Being relaxed by England but at the moment we don’t know if Wales is joining them.
