Would the EDI-CWL route be a D38 or SF3 ?? Would Loganair also step in and takeover the GLA-CWL route from Flybe too ? Or even a split load with NQY ??

Looking at the booking system it will be a Dornier 328.

Will there be a second Dornier based at NWI? Struggling to see how the aircraft will achieve the current 3 daily MAN plus (after Easter) the 3 daily EDI

suckling have 6 d328's, so would come from one of those i presume as one is spare at the moment for subbing other aircraft

but good news for Norwich more local jobs, extra flights but on a smaller aircraft should work well for them like Manchester has, well presume it has as it is still going on the same frequencies

Flight times as follows

Norwich to Edinburgh
06:50 - 08:10 Mon - Fri
13:50 - 15:10 Mon - Fri + Sun peak period
17:30 - 18:50 Mon - Fri + Sun

Edinburgh to Norwich
08:40 - 10:00 Mon - Fri
15:40 - 17:00 Mon - Fri + Sun Peak period
19:20 - 20:40 Mon - Fri + Sun

A good route for Loganair would be GLA-LBA-CWL sector, Capital did it a few years ago with their Short 360's so this could work for Loganair and their D38, SF3 and possibly their new Saab 2000's

So the fact that a route apparently worked until 1990 (not exactly "a few years ago") in a world of low fuel prices, no LCCs or LCC-driven price expectations, and no APD, is your evidence that it "could work" now?

letsflycwl - have said it before, admire your passion and determination for CWL but some suggestions and comments you make are either unrealistic or naive. You dont work for CWL Airport Marketing department do you??

Bless you Letsflycwl
I see you said that Capital operated the GLA-LBA-CWL route a few years ago... that was the one that went to BRS first and infact a few years ago was June 1990 (23 years ago) when they went bust!
The Dornier 328 would be a nice aircraft to fly on that route, but the operating costs would be a stopper.

Sorry Cyrano, i missed your comment by accident and as much duplicated your message

No more news on the arrival of Saab 2000s? Heard that crew training had started, anyone know? Just curious.

Saab 2000s definitely coming in hopefully for the summer - paperwork being sorted out at the moment so I guess once that is done the sales side of it can be changed so that the booking engine will reflect the increase capacity

Well as Loganair are getting them to simply increase capacity on their 5 (?) a day sectors I remain confident that nothing has changed

Saab2000s are still in Loganair plans

Just looked at booking engine for ABZ-LSI in July and it is giving a 50 seater map - one assumes the Saab 2000
