​​​​​​flight. Oddly enough there is no flight showing on the Chateauroux departure board to SEN so is this merely a proving flight or perhaps a meeting with Stobart?
It looks like it's a pax flight as it should be returning on Sunday to operate SEN-CHR. Maybe the first weekend of the original timetable sold OK from the French end and then there will be a break until 17th May before regular scheduling commences. It appears to me that both today's and Sunday's flight is shown on CHR's rather minimalist website departure board.

Chatearoux

Thank you guys for the updates. 10 pax is a starter and at least it did operate. Now that this is shown on the website and probably soon in the local press it should gain some momentum. It's s lovely area. I wish them good luck.

Oh yes, not Southend. The French all come over for London I guess.

Can I pose a question to all my friend, and everyone else.

With EZY moving to a fleet of aircraft that carry at least 186 pax, and FR 197. Do aircraft that can take a little over an hundred have a big future snaffeling up the routes that the aforementioned are too big for? Or are they becoming increasingly irrelevant?

You will all appreciate the question in relation to SEN.

Couple of points - which a/c would be used? CS100, EMB-195? Not being built in the numbers of the 737/A32X, so probably not on any scale. Also, if there was that big a market, would the LCC's be abandoning it?

Oh dear. The early morning MAN flight both ways has been cancelled. Maybe some pax can wait until the afternoon flight or go by train?

Well the press release says fifteen. Mind you, there only appear to be eight on the lower photo: https://www.lanouvellerepublique.fr/...mier-decollage

At least the government is aware of the new service: IGAvion starts London Southend service

That's a bit harsh c3b, but only on Glyn Jones.

All MPs are wallies, but I think Glyn Jones is respected as CEO of Stobart.
