It has been operated by an A320 for the past three days and is using the Aer Lingus mainline flight number EI 252/253. According to FR24, it's scheduled to continue daily until at least 4th April. Whether it actually does so remains to be seen.

Stobart aren't grounded, they're still operating ROI-UK services until tomorrow. After that I think it's meant to be just the domestic PSO routes they will continue. The A320 has been operating alongside their services.

Yes, but Stobart are still operating some flights to EDI at the moment. This was yesterday's combination of mainline and Stobart flights;

STA n/a EI252 Dublin (DUB) Aer Lingus A320 (EI-DVG) Landed 07:02
STA 11:20 EI3252 Dublin (DUB) Aer Lingus Regional AT76 (EI-FNA) Landed 09:40
STA 15:40 EI3256 Dublin (DUB) Aer Lingus Regional AT76 (EI-FNA) Landed 15:55

There is at least one Stobart flight today as well as the mainline A320.

LOT, who don't normally operate to EDI, have been operating some unscheduled flights in the past week with more planned to follow. These are some I found on FR24 but there may have been others;

02 Apr 2020 LO8705 Warsaw (WAW) Edinburgh (EDI) E95 STA 16:55 Scheduled
31 Mar 2020 LO8705 Warsaw (WAW) Edinburgh (EDI) 738 STA 08:45 Scheduled
29 Mar 2020 LO8705 Warsaw (WAW) Edinburgh (EDI) 738 STA 08:45 Scheduled
27 Mar 2020 LO8705 Warsaw (WAW) LOT B738 (SP-LWB) Landed 08:35
26 Mar 2020 LO8705 Warsaw (WAW) LOT B738 (SP-LWG) Landed 16:49
23 Mar 2020 LO8695 Warsaw (WAW) LOT B738 (SP-LWB) Landed 07:58
22 Mar 2020 LO8695 Warsaw (WAW) LOT E195 (SP-LNH) Landed 10:29
21 Mar 2020 LO8695 Warsaw (WAW) LOT B738 (SP-LWB) Landed 08:19
20 Mar 2020 LO8705 Warsaw (WAW) LOT B738 (SP-LWA) Landed 21:45
20 Mar 2020 LO8695 Warsaw (WAW) LOT B738 (SP-LWA) Landed 11:30

Repatriation flights for Poles - and extremely popular apparently.

In present circumstances probably safer to say "Glasgow Is currently planned to start double daily again as of the first of May." We are in totally uncharted waters at present and any recommencement of scheduled services is likely to be slow and measured I fear.

Wed 18th
Thu 19th
Fri 20th
Sat 21st
Sun 22nd
Wed 25th (B77W)

Over the next two weeks, it plans to operate on;

Thu 9th (QR29)
Fri 10th (QR31)

I haven't checked dates beyond that, but it looks as though the pattern going forwards is four flights per week; Mon, Thu, Fri, Sat, all currently A359, with the Monday flight switching from QR29 to QR31 from Monday 6th.

Here is a summary of the BA flights that have operated / are currently forecast to operate EDI-LHR since the COVID-19 restrictions really started to kick in;

As mentioned on other threads, it’s more to do with logistics. Keeping the aircraft in a limited number of locations means the engineers can manage the fleet more effectively.

SEN is driest part of country, and generally warmer, and as above, has established based engineers contracted to EZY.

I notice that there seem to be just 4 scheduled flights today, all this morning. Has EDI curtailed its opening hours, like so many other airports?

The 6am to 6pm hours appear to start from Saturday if the revised and further reduced BA schedule is correct. BA flights still operating are currently scheduled to be as follows but will no doubt be subject to change (changes since my previous post in red).

Wed-01-Apr: BA1441,
Thu-02-Apr: BA1441, BA1465
Fri-03-Apr: BA1441, BA1463
Sat-04-Apr: BA1443, BA1455
Sun-05-Apr: BA1445,
Mon-06-Apr: BA1441,
Tue-07-Apr: BA1441
Wed-08-Apr: BA1441
Thu-09-Apr: BA1441, BA1455,
Fri-10-Apr: BA1441, BA1455,
Sat-11-Apr: BA1443, BA1445,


Wed-01-Apr: 1 Flight (was 2)
Thu-02-Apr: 2 Flights (was 3)
Fri-03-Apr: 2 Flights (was 4)
Sat-04-Apr: 2 Flights (was 3)
Sun-05-Apr: 1 Flight (was 2)
Mon-06-Apr: 1 Flight (was 2)
Tue-07-Apr: 1 Flight (was 2)
Wed-08-Apr: 1 Flight
Thu-09-Apr: 2 Flights
Fri-10-Apr: 2 Flights
Sat-11-Apr: 2 Flights

The new schedule seems to be 1 flight per day Sun - Wed and 2 per day Thu-Sat.
