Posted on another forum by Olton Pete that Eurowings to announce Berlin soon. I think from memory another member posted on here that they had recently applied for slots three or four weekly either way would be good to see another route return.

Think we can confirm there will be zero chance that having Virgin fly out the England team out of BHX would any meaning even if they were impressed, seeing that they appear to have now given up totally on flying out of Gatwick and have said Manchester may grow again sometime in tjhe future. Whilst they were out of Skyteam there may have been a hope but now they've decjded to join them, i'm afraid that DL/AF/KL will be attempting to put the boot in them doing any kind of flying out of the regions other than what is currently offered and to focus those potential passengers to go out of AMS and CDG instead.

There was always a next to zero chance of Virgin coming to BHX we know that they only flew of BHX as the training facility is close and BHX's central location etc.
Virgin obviously take the West Midlands as part of MAN catchment.

I think I read they were in talks with an airline hoping for 2024 for US flights …. Don’t think it was jet blue as BHX are a long way down their list, also I do hope it’s for flights to a main airport !
I would personally be very very pleased if Icelandair came back soon with their choice of routes

Hopefully Play will announce BHX soon which will give us some TATL via KEF exposure

Norse Air have been operating for quite a while now. They took up the Norwegian routes transatlantic from Gatwick. My nephew used them in September to New York.
