I would suspect LM will cull the GLA pretty quickly.

You would have thought that NCL would have been MME given the co-ownership!

The GLA schedule posted looks incredibly similar to the Loganair schedule before they cut to 2x daily. As there is now an agreement between the two I strongly suspect this will be a code-share or operated by Logan. Possibly will be the same for EDi

Added incentive to get on with the terminal extensions now.

Very reckless Flybe expansion.
These routes will be marginal at best.
They'll be highly leisure orientated IMHO ...

RBS will prop up the SEN-EDI route and as nobody within RBS can stick to a plan or a timescale Flybe will rake it in with the £60 change fees. Expect each RBS ticket to be changed 4 or 5 times before it actually gets used.

RBS should be booking the middle fare tickets to avoid the £45 change fees.

Warwick Brady, chief executive, said: "In London Southend Airport and Stobart Energy, the group has two businesses with immediate and considerable growth opportunities. London Southend Airport continues to attract new airlines and is on course to deliver our target of five million annual passengers by February 2023."

Looks like GLA ends 3rd January. I would imagine LCY are watching very carefully for any sign of the Loganair Stobart relationship turning sour.

Why do people assume the worst. Maybe it was agreed in a friendly way between Loganair and ConnectAir/Stobart.

Isn't there a three month gap, though?

I wouldn't know. But, LCY did not hide their interest in Loganair's Dundee route. Now if they were able to reach agreement over that route, I would be surprised if neither party were interested in exploring the possibility of moving SEN's routes to Docklands at some stage.

Let's hope the GLA changes were with the agreement of both parties.

If there was agreement between Loganair and Stobart regarding GLA it seems odd that there will indeed be a nearly four month gap in service on the GLA route. That's obviously not ideal and should have been possible to avoid if goodwill exists between them.

The Flybe presence at SEN next year looks to comprise two based ATR72s with Q400s at three Flybe bases, BHD, GLA and EDI, operating all the flights from/to those points.

Does anyone know if Easyjet will be flying into Schipol next summer or Lelystad as the AMS airport authority wanted to move all LCC to Lelystad to free up slots for long haul flights at AMS.

I have no idea officially but I would think that there is next to no chance that they will move from AMS.

That would be too sensible. This is RBS we're talking about. Flybe already make an absolute mint from them on the EDI-LCY route and SEN will be no different.
