If EDI continues to recover strongly and attracts new carriers with long haul routes, the price tag I guess will be realistic. IMHO, EDI needs another year round route to the US or the return of EK. Stable and established routes give prospective buyers confidence to invest.Wow £3bn that's some price tag. Is that confirmed? I don't think London City reached that in the heart of the Canary Wharfe business district.

The assumption is that it’s likely to be another American route. Transatlantic doesn’t necessarily mean the USA. Could it be another Canadian route? AC and WS enjoyed bumper S22 season. AC from Vancouver??S23 slots. It appears that slots have been applied for another transatlantic route in 2023. The big questions is who and where to and will it definitely happen? My first thought turns to JetBlue, possibly to Boston. LAX is currently offering big financial incentives to airlines to connect LAX with certain destination. Scotland is listed as being a target destination for the airport. This would be a fantastic boost for EDI if it were to happen. Who would take a punt? The incentive has certain conditions. Minimum 3 x weekly service, running year round for at least 2 years I believe. I don’t see American Airlines biting at this opportunity. If I were to guess, it would be United. Any other predictions???
