Why would it be outrageous nonense? They are both IAG airlines and Vueling has a base in Malaga so would be a good candidate to take that over if EI doesn't want to operate it anymore.

Jerry123,

Where did the suggestion of VY come from?

The poster you replied to.

EI may not be able to in a couple of years. They will be an EU airline, with Brexit coming up it may well be easier for IAG to have VY to operate routes from Spain and possibly Portugal to Northern Ireland. Unless EI is willing to do it using W patterns from the continent.

Yes a couple of sunshine routes out of BHD is right up there in the IAG priority list!

The never ending Brexit departure day, EI and all other airlines will have access, if they don't UK ones will be cut out and the Goverment cannot afford to let it happen.

It would be difficult for VY to capture the EI customer base if there was a switch.

As with Brexit everything is unknown but EI might have to get an UK AOC to operate from the UK. Why would IAG bother with that when they have airlines that could cover those routes.

The more likely problem for Aer Lingus , as an EU based airline , is being able to operate a UK domestic route i.e . Belfast to Heathrow ,rather than a route between a UK point to anywhere in the EU.

Having said that the simple solution for IAG ,would be for BA to take over the
EI services on BHD/LHR.

EasyJet are securing the Austrian Aoc to allow them to operate intra EU ,not to secure the rights between UK and EU countries which I guess are assumed will be reciprocally allowed.

Q200 aka DHC-8-200 subbed in on the Air Iceland run from Keflavik today, I think that's a first. Didn't realise they even had the range for it.
