You are all correct but really this should be in the STN thread.

Actually, for the purposes of a route to MAN then yes STN is a runway in the open countryside. But, as it's outside of 'London' there is a catchment for whom train travel isn't so quick.

Eastern, BA and Manx served the need well, and it ticked along for years with modest numbers paying extortionate fares for the privilege. As noted along came AB with fares a fraction of the price and the timings were pretty good. Of course, Eastern didn't stand a chance. However, the loads weren't spectacular as I recall, and that was with feed to the German routes. It didn't last, and when Eastern returned folk were less willing to fork out having been used to paying 40-80, not 250-500.

Ryanair AGM at Dublin airport yesterday they publically reiterated they have abandoned all plans to develop a transatlantic service and instead are choosing to further expand services within Europe.

Sorry no link - awaiting AGM transcript.

I'd be surprised if there was a plan for TATL.

New routes for EDI and GLA probably be announced early in the week.

Anyone know when Ryanair will launch SNN/ORK-BCN in response to Norwegian on the route?

Website has a NQY destination page:

Does this mean a return is in the offing?

Why do RYR & ez shun the Channel Islands? If they think there's money to be made from the middle of no-where NQY why not Jersey & Guernsey? Surely the islands have sufficient demand both ways.

I would guess that the runways are too short for comfort. That is certainly the case at Guernsey and I would guess marginal at Jersey, especially given the weather - doable on a dry runway with a reasonable load but definitely not wet. DTM is the shortest LDA FR goes into, and that is sporting enough with 1700m.

Presumably as A319 is substantially smaller it is more suited to short runways like these.
FR pulled out of Belfast City because the runway was too restrictive to takeoff performance, and thats over 100m longer than Jersey. At least with DTM, 2000m is available for takeoff.

Any speculation bar Newquay? GLA could certainly do with a Scandinavian route. How long ago did the GOT-PIK route get canned?

I suspect any new routes will be city routes, keeping the sunshine lot at PIK.

Doubt we'll see GLA - NQY just seemed a coincidence. FR could provide BRU, Paris, Frankfurt, MAD all easily with good returns ex GLA I would imagine. Hopefully not sunshine routes or yet more Eastern European...

They will obviously consider how any expansion will affect services at EDI, so its hard to speculate.

GLA is well covered in Eastern Europe now with Ryanair moving in last year and the arrival of Wizz. Not sure what is left of the market there.

Nothing major for GLA/PIK then it seems which is a surprise! Just Berlin continuing into the summer season (as if it wasn't going to!) and an extra flight a week to Riga.
PIK supposedly has extra flights to PSA, but PSA was 2 weekly this summer too so I don't quite understand that announcement. In any case, PIK does actually appear to have lost CFU for next summer.

I thought MOL said he'd never consider LHR, CDG or FRA...

A few years ago FR said they would never fly to the biggest airports in Europe, like FRA, CDG, LHR and AMS. A few years later AMS is now a FR destination and they're looking at setting up a base there....

I wouldn't call MAD, FCO, DUB small airports. They were/are bases at the national capitols.
