There was an announcement back in April that The Hut Group were setting up their own freight airline and the rumour was that they were taking over the hangar. The airline was supposedly meant to be operating by the end of this month but, not surprisingly nothing has been heard since.

I thought that The Hut Group were taking over the old TCX hangar and that was the reason that Dublin aerospace had pulled out of creating Manchester aerospace Limited?
