I don’t know about BFS, but I think the LDY-LPL/EDI routes are flown by aircraft not based at those airports. Essentially the sector is shoe-horned in between longer LPL/EDI sectors. Fly757x will likely know more.

Not sure if this has been discussed, but has Thomas Cook pulled their winter program from Belfast? Everything seems to end at the start of November, and besides a couple of dates around Christmas, seems to be very little until March.

Thomas Cook and Airtours before have had a winter program from Belfast for as long as I can remember. Loose of a based aircraft, no?

i have heard the aircraft won't be coming back full stop, but not 1st hand so not 100% at the minute. Sad times if they do pull the aircraft, it was on the cards last year till a deal was struck.

A lot of TCX A321's are going to Air Transat this winter. I think 14 in total. The UK narrow body fleet will be hugely diminished and the programme has been reduced accordingly. All part of this weeks plan to reduce the winter losses. Employees in BFS are aware but nothing communicated about next summer.

Is your source reliable?

So if the FR base at Bfs is closing early November, are all routes being cancelled or operated from elsewhere? They are still on sale.

What's the official story on Ryanair closing BFS? Is it just whispers or is it confirmed? If it was confirmed it would have been all over the news. A current news search on net only mentions the Faro closure as there are flights from BFS to it.

Sounds like Thomas Cook have gone on a cancellation spree from BFS for November and December.

Covered on Radio Foyle earlier today
