Government release on investment at LBA.
The airport marketing team have an opportunity here to persuade Flybe to move their DSA short haul operations to LBA, thereby retaining at least part of their DSA passenger base but also adding pax from our area that would use the services. As mentioned in an earlier post this could justify...
Heavy smoker caught at LBA (surprised he has lived to the age of 53)
