Yes, agreed. Finding investment will be very tricky.
Although, easyjet have increased the Flybe Belfast route which was very busy. From Birmingham, Bristol, Glasgow and Manchester - all routes which had been served by Flybe. eastern are Now starting the Southampton to the northern and Scotland Airports. This reflects their old business model of the late noughties. And the channel island Operators are picking up jersey etc. That’s why I feel it would be hard for a start up to Commercially get somewhere with routes. And of course EY are looking to get as much capital out of the assets as possible. If it is, as they quoted 88m cash for the aircraft or (arguments sake) 60m for someone to operate them as an airline, they wont show much emotion in going for the former.
What a mess.
