I'd be interest to see if this airline ever gets off the ground. It's an incredibly competitive market in N.I with Easyjet, Jet2 & Flybe going head to head on some routes and looking to persude people to fly with them to their specific destinations.
N.Ireland only has a population of approx 1.8m people - surely there are easier markets to crack than this.
Can't see them starting up from BHD as they are up to the rafters with passengers at the mo unless the planners lift their passenger cap in the near future.
Going to BFS and competing on price with EZY would be like lambs to the slaughter for any fledging airline.
Would love to hear more if any one knows more about who is backing this airline and what destinations they propose to fly to.
Sorry to go off the subject slightly, just back to EGAA's new apron, as BFS/BHD said the new stands may be for jet2, thinking about it now it would make sense for LS, they are close to the cargo terminal for there mail flight, yet close to the passenger terminal aswell
Heard a whisper that a certain airline based in the docks area of Belfast are thinking of recruiting staff and offering additional schedules to LHR from BFS. If so could this be a repeat of an experiment carried out when they first moved to the waterfront?. Could they be looking at an overall increase in capacity and a LATER arrival back to NI at night?.
I can see the sense of the later arrival . I wonder if there is any truth in it?
