ERJ for easyJet Europe? Sounds strange, doesn't it?

Does flybmi reduce their fleet in 2019 or will they get new planes?

They've been saying for years they're looking at up-gauging 25% of their fleet to E-190s or CRJ900s

I think even EZY will find it hard trying to operate a ER4 profitably with a low cost business model. It will be interesting to see what routes it will be used on if it is indeed destined to EZY.

I doubt they would, be reducing there fleet the hardly enough aircraft to cover the operation as it is.... When it comes to getting bigger aircraft... who knows... they seem to talk about it a lot, however no real action so far.

G-RJXR

G-RJXR emerged at Norwich today wearing this livery with a rumor of being sold to France and looks like the livery of Regourd Aviation which already have a couple of 135s




Thanks


Mark

That is Aero4M/Regourd's livery. They operated for BMI Regional from LDY for 2 months last year whilst there was a lack of aircraft. Quite a nice livery if I'm honest, just a shame it is leaving.

Donít think we will see any ER4ís transferred to Loganair before the New Year. Noticed a couple of weeks ago that Loganair have updated there S19 schedule to show which of there current destinations from GLA are to be operated by a ER4 from 31MAR19 (details below). Based on the current schedule it appears LM wil, be adding 2 ER4ís on the same day.
The aircraft seem to be in addition to the ER4 operated by BM for LM as they are still showing as being operated by a ER4.

BEB - ER4 will op the single rotation on a Saturday and Sunday
LDY - ER4 will op 6 out of the 8 weekly flights scheduled.
SYY - ER4 will op 22 out of the 25 weekly flights scheduled

Does anyone know which ER4ís are going to be transferred to LM?. Also whether BM are going to continue to operate a aircraft for LM from INV during S19

Wasn't the idea to expand to European destinations with the ER4s? Instead they are using them to shortish routes to BEB and SYY where a turboprop will do the job given the route length and the lack of competition. Or have the Saabs become so expensive as hangar queens that a generally more expensive 50 seater jet turns out to be cheaper?

The INV routes are still to be operated by BM during S19 from what I've heard.

Still room around that schedule for one or two European destinations which I’d guess are CPH and BRU and hopefully going forward they can expand from there but ofcourse this depends on bmi expanding their fleet.

As rumours are going round about a UK airline looking at acquiring the ashes ( = the AOC) of VLM, how have flybmi's plans to safeguard its operations on the continent against Brexit advanced?

I am tempted to say - they mixed up the Brexit date ....
