I also recall Ryanair blaming lack of space at BHX as a reason for not expanding....well they’ve got a whole terminal to themselves now but I doubt we’ll see anything. Pretty sure they’ll find a few aircraft to fill Terminal 3 at MAN though!
Awful for the Flybe staff, can’t have been easy with all the increasing uncertainty. Hopefully they’ll be able to find new employment quickly.
Sad times, I’ve never known BHX not to have flights to Scotland. The old Eurohub will be like a ghost town.
The rate at which BHX is bleeding airlines and routes there won’t be any profits to be had and it’s certainly nothing to do with passenger numbers as to why Iberia are pulling out. How the management think BHX can pick up the slack from no third runway at LHR is quite honestly baffling.
