    I am going to the show. Fly from MAN at 06:20 tomorrow. Shame no conveniently timed flights from LBA would have saved cost of hotel and had extra hour in bed!

    Route Development

    In David Laws we had someone who 'understood' regional aviation. He had considerable practical experience and contacts and I was confident that his strategy to expand business travel and attract a wide body operator was well informed. What really concerns me is that the new director may not have...

    Lets hope the situation with the cargo facility is resolved, cargo revenue can be the difference between make and break for regional wide body services.

    I think it would be reassuring to know that the policy of diversification into more business oriented traffic and attracting a wide body operator is endorsed by the new director.

    A meeting was held with the airport management (the airport) and a small group of local BIFA members on the 22nd of May. I have yet to receive any feedback. An email has already gone around to all BIFA members who support LBA and another is being sent as a 'blanket' email to all other members...

    Leeds Bradford - General Thread

    Looks like Luton security staff are going on strike. No doubt security staff at other airports will be watching the developing situation. https://www.businesstraveller.com/business-travel/2019/05/21/luton-airport-security-staff-plan-12-day-strike/

    Qatar Airways celebrates First Anniversary at Cardiff Airport

    CWL I will phone Raven to see if they take all the cargo from Qatar and other flights into their own transit shed. BRS All I can think then is the freight figures are for EU traffic, but there again who is scanning the cargo if theres no cargo handling agent? Think I may have to phone the...

    Cargo

    I dont know what the rental arrangements are. You are right this is an old chestnut so maybe no smoke without fire in the past, but on this occasion I dont think its relevant. Regional cargo is going through a very tough time right now and I think WFS are just a victim of the downturn...

    Qatar Airways celebrates First Anniversary at Cardiff Airport

    Interjection from LBA forum user- hope you can help! BRS As CAA figures are quoted I assume that there is at least one Transit Shed at BRS. This is because the CAA only records 'flown' freight vand flown freight can only be accepted if there's a transit shed. You might find that the move to...

    I think the issue of rent was raised in a previous post. I have heard this so many times over the years in connection with the freight facility that I just ignored it. Its just a symptom of the airport company not engaging with the air freight community over many years. I started the thread to...

    Sorry, para 2 should read 'WFS are almost certainly LOSING money (not using!)

    I cant say too much a the moment except that my understanding is the same as White Heathers. There is apparently no case for the airport to answer. WFS seem to have taken this decision in isolation. Bobby Ham, I think your less than positive comments about the airport company on this specific...

    The feedback on this forum regarding the NQY route from LBA has been very positive. Has it been mis-reported or are FlyBe just rationalising for the sake of it?
