One slight problem here is due to controlled airspace or in the case of LDY lack of it!
Aircraft departing LDY and heading Southeast fly through uncontrolled airspace until they reach the Belfast TMA or join airway Lima ten at the Belfast VOR.
The uncontrolled airspace is in the Scottish FIR and the best service that can be received from the West Coast sector at Scottish Centre is a radar information service (RIS).
Easyjet will not accept a RIS and will request a Radar advisory service (RAS) when flying outside controlled airspace and Scottish Centre cannot provide this.
Belfast International Airport ATC can provide a RAS in this area but not up to the vertical extent required by the aircraft because the higher levels are controlled by Scottish Centre. It is very rare for a Centre to delegate airspace to an Airfield, in fact it normally happens the other way round.
So there you have it. If Easyjet are considering using LDY
then either an Airway must be established ( and that takes years due to opposition and enviromental issues) or the company may have to downgrade the Radar service required for the portion of flight outside controlled airspace.
