I have sent Father Christmas my LBA wish list, may have more joy via this route, at least only get disappointed one day a year.I refuse to get excited. I will do that only if/when anything is announced that deserves excitement.
As for Easyjet - well with Jon Cunliffe here and his previous Easyjet connections, and their home base being another AMP Capital airport (LTN), we have never had a better opportunity to get them back here at LBA. AMP have 3 airports in the UK, 2 of which have an Easyjet presence. It would surely be feasible to get a deal with the airline which covers all 3 of them, as Peel Holdings did some years ago with Wizz. However, I am nut sure that anyone is in a position to claim this is definite, or even imminent.
At the moment there is nothing to suggest whether this news (if it exists) will be massive in a good way or a bad way, so my feet remain firmly on the ground.
Come on guys..Bobby posted in good faith and thats all we can ever ask of people. Let us all draw breath again, be patient and see if any other news comes in the next couple of weeks..I've just said, verbatim, what I was told. Simon Whitby called up to say to watch out for "Massive" Airport news in the next couple of weeks. I don't think it's the KLM announcement that he was referring to.
|From March 28th, 2020 we will welcome a larger Boeing 737 aircraft flying to Amsterdam. The increased capacity is a well-received development from KLM, our longest-standing partner, having operated from Leeds Bradford Airport for over 30 years.|
This will create an additional 7,000 seats during the 2020 summer season, allowing more passengers to explore Amsterdam; or enjoy one of the 161 further KLM destinations.
| Thanks to Aer Lingus, we have welcomed extra flights to the culturally-renowned city of Dublin. The mid-afternoon flights operate three days a week, creating an additional 1,700 seats per month for business and leisure travelers.|
The additional flights offer far greater flexibility; reducing transfer times and improving the choice of transatlantic connecting flights.
| Whilst we enjoy our traditional Sunday Lunch, Americans are preparing for Thanksgiving, one of the largest culinary holidays in the US.|
Aer Lingus can get you to America with ease with new flights to Dublin improving connections across the pond. Throw caution to the wind in 2020 and get your hands on a pumpkin pie, Yorkshire puddings will be there when you get back... we promise.
