Thanks, but not always practical or cost-effective depending on where one is based at the moment, hence my asking. I have now taken my business elsewhere, given their lack of information and email contact.

Looks like Leeds is set to be the home of a new airline called ExtraJet, due to be launched in 1Q2016.

Let's hope Extrajet get off the ground in the new year and make these 2 routes to Antwerp and Copenhagen work from Leeds-Bradford.
Be interesting to know if bmi regional have got 2x spare Embraer 135 aircraft in it's fleet to supply this lease agreement, and if so will it mean ex LBA based bmi crews returning home?

There are also rumours floating about that flybe may be about to/or have signed a deal to base 2x of its aircraft at LBA next year operating a few new routes, just waiting for something official to be announced if it's true?

I wish flybe would sort itself out before opening more bases.

It seems to be reverting to the troublesome times when it had a myriad of bases and poor performance issues.

It closed several bases, ended tens of routes and told the world of its 're-focusing' the business.

Since then, LCY, BOH and CWL have opened as bases, their OTP has been atrocious this last month and have had to hire in several aircraft, including bmi regional E135's, VLM F50's and Air Europa ATR's.

And now, it wants to open a Leeds base despite barely being able to cover their full programme this year.

History is definitely repeating.........

BM currently have a ER3's based at ABZ, EMA, MUC and NCL. BM could lease another couple of ER3's or they could once again base a ER4 at NCL and a 3rd ER4 at MUC to free up two of there existing ER3's.

I am wondering though why ANR and CPH as the airlines first new routes, is there a lot businesses with offices in and around the LBA that have offices in the ANR and CPH area?.

Anyone remember Duo at BHX? This has echos of that kind of operation, which as I recall, failed to get enough business passengers on routes that are far more viable than LBA-ANR.

I wondered that too but maybe, as there is no LBA-BRU route at the moment serving Antwerp, which is not far from Brussels it might be quite viable. Of course if Brussels Airlines start BRU-LBA then that's another matter.

That being the case, why not operate to BRU - it would surely offer a better chance of success?

Well Antwerp may offer a good deal, cheaper landing charges and suitable landing slots, and there may be a market to the north of Antwerp that could be tapped into, plus they plan a CPH connection too from Antwerp.

It seems a bit of a strange one when BMR couldn't make a go of a 135 twice a day from Leeds to Brussels. I just checked out the Antwerp airport website--120,000 passengers a year.

Well what a surprise Balkan Holidays Air Airbus A330-200, LZ-AWA has just landed on a wet Runway 14 operating the weekly BGH5569/5560 charter service from Bourgas instead of the normal Airbus A320.

Sadly no the A330-200 visit today was just a late replacement due shortage as BH Air have 2x of their own A320's out of service for maintenance reasons.

That is such a shame, its unfortunate that we don't have a few more larger aircraft at LBA

Good to see local ITV News reporting that Leeds Bradford Airport recorded its busiest ever month in August 2015 as over 400k passengers travelled through the airport for the first time.
