It will be operated in place of DUB-BLK with the 42.

MD of NQY just announced on radio that a batch of new routes will be announced best week and these will be daily return flights to airports to allow connectivity above and beyond the existing route network.

This can only be referring to flybe considering the currently released schedules would suggest 3 aircraft NQY based for summer 15

Also stated that LHR will ringfence slots for NQY if R3 gets built.

Interesting for NQY - did the MD say whether day returns were possible each way? I am wondering if maybe they would do, say a NQY-AMS-XXX-XX-XXX-AMS-NQY

What routes would be day returns with connectivity - maybe MAN is going double daily. Maybe there will be a CDG link or wonder if they will go head to head with EI on a DUB and overkill on capacity. Cannot think of a huge list of destinations with a market in NQY that would allow better connectivity if I am honest. Will be a nice surprise I suppose

Could EI to DUB be one of those routes? Has it actually been officially announced?

Otherwise maybe the routes are EDI and NCL, both of which would offer long haul connections. Flights may leave NQY every day, but each route needn't be daily.

AMS is a good shout, but I saw elsewhere only 2 BE code shares are allowed by KL unions both of which are taken.

EI DUB-NQY was announced last mid November. 4 weekly rising to 5 for the main season and is year round on an ATR42.

Currently BE @ NQY show 3 departures daily at 1100 ish, LGW, STN and BHX all showing as operating ex NQY.

Currently only 1 Q400 is "based" aka night stops and operates MAN & 3x LGW.

Clearly either more routes/rotations or changes to the schedules to operate BHX as an example ex BHX.

It might end up being a condition for the permission, along with other thin "routes". Apparently, many MPs in the north and west are keen for thin domestic routes to/from LHR to reinstated, for obvious reasons.

Still seems odd that EI don't offer any form of connections. NQY-DUB-EDI etc

Don't know if it's been fully loaded as yet.

Also seems to be loaded as an ATR72 not 42

It is scheduled for 72-600 - which is a great product, more like a jet than any prop I've flown on. Ei don't offer online connections except for T/A.

As both the UK and Ireland exist within their own "mini Schengen" area this would be perfectly possible, but to really make it so there would need to be flight time coordinated to ensure minimal transfer times in Dublin, and I guess that for just a couple of connecting pairs (eg. NQY to EDI / GLA) it would hardly be worth their while.
