No domestic EZY routes so my best guess would be CDG and AMS plus seasonal GVA and JER staying on with RYR servicing the sun spots!

I bet the shareholders will be asking a different question along the lines of, "When exactly did you know Easyjet were off? Before or after we put in another £100m of our cash to keep the company afloat?"

I see that Ryanair's base at SEN now seems under threat too - https://www.balpa.org/Media-Centre/P...ary-pay-cuts-t

So what would be left with no Ryanair or Easyjet?

According to a Ryanair SEN based pilot they are not pulling out. Lets hope he is right.

I would imagine it will be down to how much money Stobart is prepared to pay Ryanair to stay as they hold all the cards.

Southend Airport’s website is still showing no flights operating on their arrivals and departures web page. Is that really the case or has Stobart gone to sleep?

London Southend Airport in the UK has reopened its terminal to passengers after it was closed for three months due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

LSA informed me by email that whilst the current daily flights were rather haphazard with many cancelations, they would not keep that list up to date on their website.
Answer. Yes. Laziness.

Perhaps with the Lake District reporting a surge in bookings, now is a good time to relaunch the Carlisle route?

Gets worse by the day. The place will have no flights some days in winter the way things are going.

At most companies, when a major customer leaves, the staff, the directors and senior staff start to panic (junior staff are often not paid enough to care). Presumably that is happening now at SEN, but the PANIC! message just hasn't been communicated out yet officially...

Carlisle would need to re-open first. Notam'd closed until 20 August and no indication it will be opening any time soon.

Looking at next May Easyjet are still showing Southend based aircraft, which I assume will eventually disappear.

Reading the comments the majority are delighted but I would think they are the ones who suffered.
