LPL

Thanks Ian....does that provide greater operational flexibility (I.e. larger pool of staff to use)?

AMS remains on sale on the Flybe website.
The future of LPL-AMS is commercially sensitive info which I'm not entitled to.

The crew base cut-over is in about a months time and I would expect a public announcement soon.

Wonder if there's a new base coming to Hannover, with 2 new routes to Milan and Lyon?

I see Republic have just filed for Chapter 11 protection - wonder if this will affect the remaining transfer of their -8 fleet?

Flybe HAJ

Interesting development. HAJ has some good business travel, but not enough to sustain daily A319/B737 ops. Lyon is a bit of a surprise, MXP is a pretty good choice, other thinkable routes would be ARN, PRG, WAW, SZG, VCE, FCO, NCE, DUB, BUD; with Spanish destinations probably a push for he Dash8. All of the aforementioned destinations have been served from HAJ before, generating some good uptake, but not sufficient for the 150+ seats planes.

Flybe are basing one Dash 8 in HAJ


Dublin has been done by Aer Lingus last year and always had high loads but for some reason they gave up!

The HAJ routes look to be W patterns, no sign of it being a base...

According to HAJ Intranet News one Flybe Dash 8 will be based in Hannover


Quote "
Nonstop nach Mailand und Lyon

flybe verstärkt Präsenz in Hannover mit zwei neuen Zielen und einer stationierten Maschine


Ab dem 01. August wird die britische Fluggesellschaft flybe mit Mailand Malpensa und Lyon täglich zwei neue Nonstop-Ziele ab Hannover anfliegen. In diesem Zusammenhang stationiert die Airline eine Bombardier Q400 an unserem Flughafen, die Platz für 78 Passagiere bietet. "

Flybe HAJ

Number of options then for BE at HAJ, if it was indeed a based aircraft:
1) they add another morning destination for the based a/c (UK destination likely too far for the ca. 90mins sector length)
2) they change the BRU schedule from HAJ so that morning flight continues to be done from HAJ, but afternoon and evening flight from BRU
3) ??

Overall HAJ presents a good test balloon, as BE have had one plane overnighting for many years as part of SN ops there.

Isle of Man

Anyone know what Flybe's game plan really is for the Isle of Man?
Stobart on all flights in a few months' time, but apparently VLM are now also coming to operate some flights in March to MAN.
Beginning to look like a heritage aircraft route....?

Press release re. the above:

Flybe | Corporate | Media | News archive | FLYBE STATEMENT 160301

Love the way they try to make it an environmental as well as financial decision - yeah right.

LPL-AMS

Was always a stupid decision by them. Not going to compete with the orange lot on that route.

Passenger wise, they're holding their own at MAN, with KLM to boot. Weather they're making money though - only Flybe knows.

Personally I can see little wrong with the Flybe statement. Quite reasonable to say that flying a plane with only a few seats filled is unsustainable in both economic and environmental terms.
However the word 'reasonable' for some posters on here is not part of their vocabulary.

It's naive to think this would be anything other than a financial decision.

I'm not actually criticising that, my point was that trying to dress it up as something else looks a bit silly.
