Well 2 x daily EDI-BHX wouldn't be enough. It's a busy business route and has had multiple frequency for decades now (as has GLA very similarly) I think that would not give business the flexibility it needs. The train is 4h30m fastest, at a frequency of only every two hours so you spend 9 hours minimum on the train that will require an overnight stay unlike a day or half day return by air. Both routes have been served by 1-11's, 737 and A319 with BA (some ATP off peak) in the past, although there was feed to BA hub at BHX, until they pulled out, admittedly but frequency has still been maintained. Although now retired and re-located, I have in the past been a frequent business user BHX-EDI/GLA and frequency is very important as it's possible with the schedule to use time efficiently. I think it really needs to remain at good daily spread service and 1 on Saturday is wholly inadequate. I hope you're wrong on your suggestion.

easyJet are forecasting over 180000 pax. On the basis of the July data, which may be not normal, Flybe carry just under 300000. So EZY expect to take over half the traffic, unless there's an unmet need for LCC traffic.
And BTW, the train takes about 3 hr 30. We'll see.

3h 30m for the train is way off the mark. The quickest is the 0852 which is 4h6m. The majority are nearer 4h15m

Great to see some competition on the EDI-BHX route as a regular user. The current FlyBe service is poor with frequent delays, cancellations and the planes are tired and cramped.

I have colleagues that take the train rather than use FlyBe. EasyJet is likely to take passengers from the train as well as FlyBe if the flight times work for business travel. The current train service isnít really an option for day trips and if you live outside Edinburgh is closer to 5 hours minimum.

July is is likely to have lower loads given that July is peak holiday time and the number of business travellers on the route.

The average journey time by train from BHX itself is 4h30 every two hours. It depends where you start from. There is a large catchment area from the South/ South East area from the airport down to Milton Keynes etc. I'm just saying for business users I think the train takes far too long; day returns are an absolute requirement.

5x Daily seems overkill...

This is a reduction in terms of seats moving from Dash 8 to a E145 - right? Did not fly the route often so donít know what the Flybe load factors were like but the smaller plane might be fuller. Is this not a flash back to when BMI served the route?

Hi All,


I hope this question is in the right place!

I am flying out of EDI on flybe in a couple of days. After that I am flying out of MAN and out of Europe.

I want to hand carry a handheld, re-chargable, aviation, VHF transceiver. I need to hand carry it out of EDI because I will have hand luggage only, and out of MAN because I want to claim a VAT refund on it Any idea how security will react to it? In theory I could cause total mayhem with it! But I wonder if security will know or care and will distinguish it from any random radio ?

Although they don't seem to have posted the numbers on their own website, I found them here. Big fall in domestic numbers, just offset by continued, but slowing, growth in international business.

This image also appears to show an extended south east pier.

All part of the masterplan, Good to see more expansion though. Also Jet2 added a few thousand extra seats for the winter. And Im also hearing rumours that Jetblue are intersted in starting New York in the future on A321XLR.

And where/whom were you hearing that from? Keen to credibility and timescales.

JetBlue will not come near the place. They are more interested in larger cities first such as London, Dublin & Amsterdam. They are not going to launch risky routes like EDI, they are only going to launch routes that they know there is demand for.

Edinburgh is on their radar but not in their first launch.

Its on the Jetblue Map of potential destinations for the A321XLR, and Its been rumoured elsewhere, but my guess would be that the flights wont be for a few years.
