3i sell off BHD with agreement from Harhour Commissioners to redevelop as 'urban village'. All Belfast aviation is then concentrated at one site. An un-restricted site. Infrastructure is put in place to serve BFS and significant redevelopment takes place.
5 years down the road BHD is forgotten about, and we have one big airport that makes life easier for most.
Alternative is 2 airports with one major operator each no significant developments taking place, and both operators walking on thin ice hoping that their major operator doesn't go under.

Inclined to agree with the spirit of this. Far better to have a thriving strong airport with a whole range of different offerings rather than two spread very thinly with limited investment because of the strain.

Maybe I'm just a realist. You are entitled to your opinion, so am I. I would be interested to hear how you see Bhd recovering from here to close to where it was before Flybe went under. What would your plan be?

Tell you what. Let's think about it another way. What would happen to BFS if EZY went bust. Now I can't see it happening, but just think about the coverage of BA this last 24hrs.

Thank you for an honest answer. 3i will be thinking the same. Problem is they might not have the patience to wait for that recovery. Therein lies the problem.

Im not sure why EI-GHK has move back to belfast as Connect Airways Group have been in administration since 10th March,
Stobart Air and the Aer Lingus Regional routes have not affected, unless they are looking at new franchise partner since collapse of Flybe,either Eastern Airways or Loganair.
Also could be that Stobart Air might need the room in Dublin, there is 1 ATR 42-600 getting painted white at the Moment and 2 ATR 42-600 Maintenance in Denmark and Sweden

Some balloon on Twitter has suggested the following - "What about Aer Lingus Regional coming into BHD to operate Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, East Midlands, Glasgow, Edinburgh and possibly a London route. Obviously when things settle down of course" - It never ceases to amaze me how naÔve people are with regards to aviation.

Is the Q400 economical though? perhaps compared to a jet, but not compared to an ATR.

easyJet will be operating 5 flights a day from W20/21 between BFS and NCL. Will this affect BHD-MME demand?
