Should have had flights out of MME for the first time this summer, but haven't due COVID.

Pretty sure there's a replica photo of this somewhere for Jetsgo / BHD launch to Majorca a year or two ago. Same Jetsgo guy, different airport person. Never actually took off to fly from BHD at the height of the market in the end, so here's hoping Derry have better luck - and some clawback on any upfront funding..

Ryanair's Summer 2021 Schedule (Not on sale yet but times have been loaded.)

EDI - 5x Weekly. Remains the same as what was planned for S20. Some time changes but apart from that, very little change. (73H)

November schedules

With the winter schedule now started, Edinburgh has returned for another go at 3x pw, Liverpool up to 4x pw. However, Glasgow now suspended for all of November (returns December) while STN is going down to one flight per day (none on Saturday) for all of November (returns to full schedule December).

A reflection, no doubt, of the difficult situation on both sides of the border.

Just noticed that myself, not good news at all. Whilst cuts weren’t unexpected, I didn’t foresee LPL being complete cut. Hopefully they do make a return for S21 or else the airport could be in a very tricky situation.

Strange - I've just had an email from Ryanair for my February and March LPL bookings which just show new flight number RK9884, now being operated by Ryanair UK.

Perhaps not a cancellation but just whilst they update their systems and Brexit related?

I did realise that too on their site too when I checked that the flight was “sold out.” STN-BFS was also removed today so again with it being a domestic too, it is a possibility. God loves an optimistic so I suppose I’ll be one!

Good to see, I’d expect EDI to follow... It’s going to be strange seeing RK9884/9885 for a while!

Yes. I never thought I'd see Air Afrique flying to LDY.

Edinburgh now back up: 3 pw Jan to March as anticipated. Downside is that Loganair appear to have further suspended the Glasgow service through to the end of March (was due to resume early December) apart from two flights around Christmas. Donegal - Glasgow service also suspended until the summer season.

Interesting but brief item in the online 'Belfast Telegraph' about an emergency landing at CODA on Thursday evening by what is described as a 'PSNI aircraft' with engine failure. Investigation apparently underway.
