It was unveiled yesterday that the West Midlands local authorities have given Coventry Airport permission to build a new terminal building.
The new terminal building will be built and ready for passenger operations by next August.
This press release has managed to attract three low-cost airlines which are hoping to start operations at the end of summer 2003.
Coventry Airport is currently a cargo airport but new passenger commericial operations are expected to soar in its first year of operation.
A consultation period is currently being undergone in the local area but all signs are for a thums up!
Now, let me see which three low-cost airlines have said that they will start operating... COULD IT BE....
Buzz - 2nd base in the Midlands? ... after successful operations at Stansted (STN).
Channel Express - Apart from operating at Leed/Bradford (LBA) next year, will they base in the Midlands too?
Ryanair - threre was a rumour about a year ago that they wanted to get into the Midlands, especially at Coventry... 3rd base after Prestwick (PIK) and Stansted (STN)?
It can't be Easyjet/Go or BMI Baby because they are at East Midlands (EMA)... nor can it be My Travel Lite, being at Birmingham (BHX).
mmmmmmmmm......... Can anyone shed any light on the matter.
