I've clearly stated where the rumour has come from.

And a quick check online shows the airport have been doing a lot of recruitment lately, which backs up half the rumour.

Nowhere did I insinuate it was Jet2, or any other airline.

Never mind, you seem convinced the airport will never, ever announce a new route!

So which sirline have you been told your post Didnt say which airline or to where .
You said sort of but it didnt make sense a new airline.
So who????
What route
Was it staff who told you. Or did you just read tthe staff expansion and assume new routes

I don't have any specific info. I have just posted what I have been told.

At the end of the day, the airport will have to attract new routes at some point, or else it won't survive.

Easy on the inquisition OC, the guy didn't say it was Jet2.

Let him hang himself out to dry as usual......

Its just annoying that for those of us who want our community to thrive and grow in turn we need and desire a thrving airport , With all the business connections it can and could bring , Along with Huy as our local airport its right to feel strongly about the future if both.
So to have a poster who regularly delights in downplaying the airport and its chances . Or randomly posts totally empty basesless roumors , Whos only defence for doing so is the site is labled as a rumor forum , Well its getting totally beyond a joke.
Yes it happens on the internet. But there has to be a degree of reality to conform with the hard work if the forum providors who give us this enjoyable forum in which to share genuine information or share hopes and ideas for thr future of our airports and the aviation industry.
We do NOT need ' the little boy who cried wolf' Randomly posting worthless baseless info. Simply for the sake of a new post for that airport , Speculation is fine .Ideas are fine . Etc etc

Let's just chill a bit. Things don't seem to be improving at DSA nor getting any worse.

Seeing as I was heavily questioned about where my rumour came from, can I ask where yours was from?

Seems whatever I was told was either rubbish or it hasn't happened yet. But facts are still there, passenger numbers so far this year are heavily down on last year.

Can't see anything coming anytime soon, maybe something new from Wizz or a synergy of the LPL-CPH link with Norwegian at a big push.....

More bad news.

Bourgas and Kos dropped from Thomson's offerings for next summer.
Also 2 less flights from Thomas Cook compared to this year.

The reductions continue.

Egcn Tristar.
That was what I said but got shot down for re the Synergy for lpl and No.
I asked a question of someone in the know.
Im not naming the source incase the info was given to me as a single person asking and confidential.
It would be unfair to come out and say it.
However I can prove that I had a communication which answered a few questions.
Now...
A hub route is apparently an imminent aim.
Long haul and seemingly a middle eastern connection is in the works but a long way off.
However. My view as stated on my local forum.
As you say a lpl synergy.
I predict a daily bar one or two days out n return to Cph.
Cph is a hub.
That covers the comment on email as its not a lie but is actually a Hub connection.
However its typical form there.
First Ezy tries Ams with oversized poorly timed Ac Got the hump about numbers rather than altering times and making a go of it
Then they chased Another hub route with an airline that never was and fares that would have made sure that their ac ended up with no takers.
What we need is either Klm to Ams
Cityjet/Hop ( or whatever airfrance are called now). With smaller aircraft and a connection to CDG.
But I really see this one coming another half thought through attempt.
Using NO. FROM Dsa. However long the flying time is to CPH. So in order for connection flights to the US or wherever Those Dsa flights will need to be very Early.
You need a return back in a day.
DO No codwshare,.
I can maybe see Dsa-Cph-Jfk as a joint ticket.
Maybe in that sense it would be good for dsa.
Wedaybe need a midday out n return trip.
But if you look at it Ryanair are Hardly there Ezy are obviously training which may mean a return.
But I think No are the most plausible.
They could add other routes such as a few we already have in competition with Thomson
And maybe add one or two more new routes.
So all in alk youd have no great change.
Dsa is ripe for an incoming Lcc like no.
We have a long runway. So their longhaul might even be the long term plan.
But they are most likely.
New planes. Neq foreign routes run from the uk.
No said they want into quieter regional airports or those with little loco presense.
Id even lay odds on them trying Dtv to Cph as well.

Onyx - I applaud your efforts in regard to research and strategical insight, but could you PLEASE put a bit more thought into your posts. As pamann states, your above post requires a translator to make it understandable.

"re the Synergy for lpl and No." - Who are Synergy and do they operate from Liverpool? No?
"As you say a lpl synergy." - Again, who is Synergy?
"Using NO. FROM Dsa." - NO?
"I predict a daily bar one or two days" - Where's the bar? Is it a free one? What days do they serve?
"Cityjet/Hop" - I know who CityJet are, they don't hop!
"DO No codwshare,." - Is that an instruction?
"Wedaybe" - Now you're just making words up for your own entertainment!
"an incoming Lcc like no." - What (or who) is NO for Pete's sake?
"New planes. Neq foreign routes run from the uk." - Your guess is as good as mine!

You obviously have a lot to say and it's probably all very informative when deciphered; might I suggest first typing your posts into a Word document on your PC and then cutting and pasting into here.

On a personal level, I've watched Finningley turn from being one of the busiest RAF Stations in the UK to probably the quietest airport in the UK, having such a long runway that's an absolute sin and disappoints me greatly. Peel stuck with the project through all the Public Enquiry nonsense and the Kirkham-funded anti-airport campaigns, which I admire them for, but now they just seem happy to let it rot.
