I just hope the crews are trained and familiar with the difficulties of landing at Gib?
Why would they not be?

Gib IS a peninsula. The bit with the airport on is an isthmus!

No quarantine required if you're flying into Gibraltar and staying there, believe it's back on the exemption list for Wales too. However if you use the airport to travel into Spain and fly back from Gibraltar I believe you do have to quarantine.

When I was over there in May 2019 a BA aircraft ended up being diverted to Malaga, as I was waiting for my departure. The difference now is that all the passengers would have to go into quarantine on their return to the U.K.

i think flights into Gibraltar have to be double captained due to the tricky approach avoiding Spanish airspace and the wind off the rock.

Having had conversations with the flight deck crews of Monarch, BA and easy when I have flown in/out of Gib, Monarch was Captain land and FO take-off likewise with BA but easy was/is Captain landing and takeoff. Whether it has changed recently I don't know. First Officers you can land etc but in the sim! Whether Wizz employ any ex Monarch crew I have no idea.

I believe quite a fair amount of ZB crew went to Wizzair.

GBC news are reporting that the Transport Minister is in talks with another new airline, which aims to launch flights next year. I guess airlines are realising GIB is a relatively ‘safe’ market which doesn’t get quarantine restrictions imposed.

If 737 passenger ops are ruled out, there aren’t many airlines left for a potential service.

Just an observation, recently a couple of 737’s (Albastar was one of the operators) have been in and out of GIB on special football charters. I’m assuming these were not fully loaded
