Whatís with the Atlas Air flight to Chicago (ORD) thatís showing on the airport departure board for 28/05/2018 at 02:00?

Atlas Air are primarily a cargo airline but they do also operate some charter / adhoc flights.

Any have any ideas ?

I'd be surprised if the airport put cargo flights on it's boards. Scarlets are playing in Dublin that weekend so could be connected?

Interesting read on the BBC, new domestic flights being explored from CWL......MAN, LBA, ABZ, NQY, GLA, HUY, NWI, INV and a London link again.....all as PSO routes (without the APD) tax.

its stating from Spring 2019 subject to attracting airlines.....no doubt J31, J41, SF3 & D38 sized aircraft...interesting read though.

Going over old ground again but Wales need to control the APD as Scotland currently does then this will benefit the country (Wales) and CWL

Scotland has had the powers devolved but there is some legal clarification going on with the EU to do with the Highlands routes APD exemption i believe.

Starting in Spring 2019 it will be interesting to see what airlines come forward to operate all these services.

even with the lack of APD and the Ďmodest marketing budgetí surely thereís no market for some of these flights? Aberdeen, Manchester maybe Leeds but come on Humberside? Norwich? If London canít work even with APD then I canít see the others even without.

The only way i could see Humberside and Norwich being viable is if Flybe sold them as positioning flights to operate sun routes out of those airports which they currently do with Exeter and Norwich.

I'm sure someone would. Last time Norwich operated i think it averaged about 700 people a month who used the service.

In 2015 LinksAir that operated the Cardiff-Anglesey PSO route decided to extend it to Norwich (CWL-NWI sector non PSO). It operated one NWI rotation from CWL daily.

The route was not a success and handled (CAA stats) 130 passengers in April that year, 185 in May and 102 in June. It was then axed.

I'm sure i read in an article about them scrapping the route that they were only getting 700 passengers a month on the route and that wasn't making them money.

I find surprising that they should suggest a subsidised routes to GLA and ABZ when there is an unsubsidised route to EDI.

That report was clearly inaccurate. 417 passengers were carried during the three months of its life.

Air Wales tried a route from CWL via Norwich and Dublin for a while in late 2004 into 2005. It was only a couple of days a week from memory and a look at CAA stats showed it carried fewer than 600 passengers during 2005.

Aberdeen is only available via Newcastle at an astronomical price.
Glasgow seems to go up and down with Flybe. One season it's daily then the next it goes 4 weekly and then 5 weekly. Scotland hasn't seen much growth from Flybe with EDI staying at 12 weekly at GLA up and down compared to Ireland where between Dublin and Belfast there has been growth in frequencies. If Flybe base a 4th aircraft then I'd have thought they'd or the WG would want to operate a route like Glasgow at 12 weekly and no doubt no APD would help with that. If they do add more Scottish flights i really hope Inverness gets included as well.
