The A330s can currently make it on round trip, occasional drops are made in Turkey and Italy at the moment where they are able acquire fuel either via local tanking (Turkey) or from Russian spot markets.

Iranair continue to serve Heathrow three weekly and off the record don’t be surprised if a certain UK citizens liberty and supply of UK pharmaceuticals are part of a rather more nuanced mini deal that may be going on.
I think Mahan operated on behalf of PK to GLA also when their A310 UK ops were subject to restrictions. Oh the irony...

Surprised cargo was down, especially EMA , although this was April figures, imagine Mays will be significantly more

Concrete evidence suggests a tsunami of restarts from the main UK hubs of Heathrow and Manchester in June July August.

Not seen anything for the smaller regional airports like Bristol, Birmingham, Leeds etc

One wonders if airlines will consolidate at the majors ?

Ryanair have published on their website a sizeable list of routes they plan to operate from various airports.

July now cancelled

spannersatcx, the EZY flights are on sale and bookable for July, as are FR and Jet2. Please can you clarify which airline has cancelled for July. Thanks.

I'm pretty certain he's referring to Cathay whom he is, I understand, employed by.

I may be wrong, but I am hearing inbound quarantine into HKG has been extended until September. Restrictions on transits, however, has been lifted. Can't see Cathay coming back until inbound restrictions are lifted.
(That is quarantine for HKG residents- non residents are currently not allowed to stay)

From the SCMP re HKG entry."Compulsory quarantine will also apply until July 7 for travellers from mainland China, Macau and Taiwan, and September 18 for residents arriving from overseas.

The indefinite ban on non-residents flying into Hong Kong from abroad has also been continued"

My guess we will not see Cathay back at MAN until these restrictions are lifted.

Manchester Airport are trialing a pre booked 15 minute window slot for passing through security. I'm curious as to how this works in practise. A passenger would not really know how long the check in- bag drop experience will take. Maybe OK with very few people, but if services ramp up- check in time could be unpredictable. Interesting experiment though. (By the way the security pre book is free)

Mr A tis, it's not only security and check in. The journey to the airport is also important, trains can be delayed, roads and car parking can be slow.

Re security - To be honest it should I guess be applauded that they are actually doing something innovative.

They seemingly failed to capitalise on aircraft parking and they are not that keen to handle anything more than a handful of freighters a week.

Just out of interest, does anyone know when T2/T3 are likely to open again?

As of last weekend there was one spot empty in the whole T2 remote parking area. Not sure randomly using the gates at T1 is a wise move as T2 was full and T3 a Ryanair parking lot. There’s no room to capitalise on this unless you want to use the second runway?
As ever, MAN remains really tight for space.
