Yes but they had written down the value of their stake to zero and wanted nothing more to do with it for last number of years.

Thrice Daily Southend to Dublin by Aer Lingus Regional

This newly announced service by Aer Lingus Regional should be a winner, even in these difficult times. The three flights per day will offer people in south east Essex (and there's over a million of them) the benefit of new U.S. Customs and Immigration pre-clearance facilities at Dublin Airport, allowing them to arrive in the US as domestic passengers, saving valuable time and hassle on arrival. Providing the fares are competitive this should stop a lot of journeys around the M25 to LHR..... And Dublin is a beautiful city to visit of course.

Southend also offers a rapid transit through its terminal to its new railway station and a rapid trip into central London, so it should be an attractive destination for Irish travellers also - again, provided the fares are competitive.

I think sen could be a gold mine of a route. i wouldnt be surprised to see some rotations upgraded to 320's. I would think that ei may not have this route all to themselves for very long.

stab3.5up, for the long term, I agree. But not in the short term.

3x ATR 42 to establish the route, which will no doubt be worth upgrading to 3x ATR 72 some 3-6 months later. Then, in maybe 12 months, I can see the A319 as it filters in to EI's fleet being worthwhile on the route.

I'm not sure I can see Southend being that much of a goldmine in itself. Its catchment isn't any greater than a number of other destinations that don't exactly have great service from Dublin.

What they do have though is the only flight from Southend that will connect you onto long-haul. And with no transatlantic from Stansted, with Heathrow and Gatwick a decent distance away, that could mean the yields are very good on Southend-originating pax. However, I don't see that meaning exceptionally large numbers that would justify transfering the route to an A319/320.

There is the Stn - Ams / Dub etc option for transatlantic plus others so not convinced there will ever be that level of demand from Southend.

it's a leasing company, just like the dozens of others that are based in the IFSC and around Dublin (and Shannon). It's a small bit of good news for the economy, but has nothing at all to do with movements at Dublin Airport.

Strategic Airlines planned flights to LCA have being cancelled, not know if another carrier will take over the flights.

The second Thomson aircraft will be replacing Hoilday Czech Airlines flights and some Europe Airpost flights.

Sunway will now just be using Thomson's regular flight on Sundays.
