Flying the UK regionals seems to be so difficult just now to make money & I doubt that will change any time soon.

I'd say from my UK visits that the train service has improved a lot over the last 20 years plus added security times and hassle have made local flights an uninviting choice anywhere in Europe . It may take you the same time overall but you have a comfortable seat, your radio etc in the car whereas airports seemed designed to hassle and humiliate you from start to finish

Do wonder if LM will take on any of the ex BM routes. Aberdeen to Esbjerg has been operated for years, was this an oil and gas related service ?

Possibly EZY to BRS, but guess time will tell.

From 4th March it seems LM will take on all 3 BM routes out of ABZ with all loaded and bookable on the LM site from then.

Would imagine there must be contracts in place especially in the case of OSL & EBJ if these are continuing?

Looks to be on the ERJ’s.

Translated story above certainly suggests DAT will be operating the route ex Mondays, not sure from when though. Only way DAT & LOG could possibly compete successfully on EBJ would be with completely different timings from each other - or they co-operate with one operating mornings, the other teatime, say.

LOG certainly wasted no time in taking up the ABZ routes - almost as if some preparatory work was done!

Final leg of the bypass (the bridge over troubled water) opens Tues apparently.

Loganair already have Aberdeen-Esbjerg on sale from 04 March - flights times look to be remarkably similiar to those from bmir

Update - DAT have put Aberdeen-Esbjerg flights on sale from 25 Feb but at a slightly different time of day. Looks like there will be a bit of a fight going on...

Saturday 6pm - find out BMI flights to EBJ for a family hol to Legoland are cancelled. (luckily I can claim back from Mastercard)
10pm - rebook Ryanair EDI-BLL as an alternative

Sunday - find out Loganair (and now DAT!) are taking on the route (though obviously not the bookings)

Two questions : 1. Does anyone know which aircraft DAT will use to Aberdeen
2. Are Loganair and BMI owned by the same holding company? I read that they were, but can't confirm it.

I wonder just how long BE’s LCY service will continue once Loganair launch SEN?. Especially since Loganair’s SEN Service will operate be operating at a higher frequency with flights times about 1 hr shorter than BE’s LCY flights. Also LMs lowest fare will be about half the price of BE’s lowest fare on the LCY.

Stavanger upturn?

https://www.eveningexpress.co.uk/fp/...-to-stavanger/
Looks like Wideroe are adding (ie. reinstating!) a 3rd SVG rotation during S19 timetables, reintroducing a lunchtime link.

Wonder how Loganair got on today with their new routes?

VS codes on CDG & AMS routes

Follows a JV & TATL agreement between VS, AF, KL & DL. Apparently 18 UK airports will benefit from this agreement, AMS & CDG routes pertaining to ABZ.

Be interesting to see how this plays out with the KL pilot unions. There is a covenant in place to say that another carrier can only serve points from 2 airports in their own country to AMS to protect dutch jobs.

Agreement only affects the existing AF/KL flights.

Looks like we had a visit from the BA retro 319 today in the BEA red square livery, I see a few shots of it at ABZ on the interweb thingy... looking very smart too! Would liked to have seen one in the Speedjack livery, but I guess you can't be too greedy!
