The initial report for W20/21 is now available for anyone interested although it's pretty out of date as it includes Flybe.

I don't think there is anything on there that we don't already know and recent events will mean further changes are probably inevitable.

S21 initial report
Interesting notes - Aegean hold slots for 2 flights per week, Czech Airlines still hold slots for a daily service, Loganair applied for an IOM service, Ryanair applied for new routes to Antalya, Dalaman and Poznan

Iberia Express and Indigo are among the airlines that initially held slots but cancelled their requests.

I would love to be a fly on the wall in any meeting room on this matter to see how serious this prospect is, who are leading it and what scale they plan air operation.

Historic slots have been retained at BHX and MAN (600 slots each) leaving any new operator plenty of room to start operations... tonnes of cheap aircraft and willing staff available to utilise and lots of pent up demand to travel (vaccine dependant) but still a hell of a lot of risk out there to start a new airline!

interesting one to watch!
