Anyone know why Ryanair has been launching a 737 from EDI (also PWK) for one wide IFR circuit then back to land? Can't be crew training surely?

Just keeping it serviceable, and not at 'stored' status

It also looks like when the Dublin service comes in it swaps with an EDI aircraft which then heads to Dublin presumably for checks.

This was discussed on another thread. Boeing require all their planes to fly every seven days, otherwise they will need additional checks before re-entering service. For some rest Airbus rules are different.
BTW, are there still any FR flights? I thought that the only remaining DUB flights was EI.

Ryanair will still offer 4 flights a week to Dublin on Monday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Ryanair's ops have reduced to 1 flight (FR816/FR817, arr EDI 13:45, Dep 14:10) on Mon, Fri, Sat and Sun and no flights on Tue, Wed and Thu.

Air France have reduced to a Mon, Thu, Sun service departing EDI at 12:05 using an A320.

KLM has no flight tomorrow (Friday) but is daily thereafter.

Loganair has no flights from EDI until 20th April at the earliest.

WIZZ has 3 flights per week.

I've covered BA and QR in previous posts.

AFAIK, the last of the LOT repatriation flights is scheduled to arrive at 16:55 this afternoon.

Unless schedules change, QR will have more capacity from EDI on Monday than any other airline. I never thought that would ever be the case at EDI.

According to FR24, pax flights on Wednesday 1st April were;

Arrivals;

1 06:45 EI252 Dublin (DUB) Aer Lingus A320 (EI-GAM) Landed 07:28
2 09:20 BA1434 London (LHR) British Airways A20N (G-TTNF) Landed 09:13
3 08:25 KL1277 Amsterdam (AMS) KLM B738 (PH-BXB) Landed 10:27
4 08:15 W63013 Bucharest (OTP) Wizz Air A320 (HA-LYB) Landed 07:44


Departures;

1 07:25 EI253 Dublin (DUB) Aer Lingus A320 (EI-GAM) Departed 08:28
2 10:45 BA1441 London (LHR) British Airways A20N (G-TTNF) Departed 10:48
3 09:10 KL1278 Amsterdam (AMS) KLM B738 (PH-BXB) Departed 11:11
4 08:45 W63014 Bucharest (OTP) Wizz Air A320 (HA-LYB) Departed 08:44

No pax flights operated after 11:11.

I was told by someone that works for BA that all domestic flights are being cancelled from next week.

I wonder if the Aer Lingus mainline flight will remain once Regional starts up again.

I'm surprised that there isn't a basic service to Belfast. Or are there flights from Glasgow?

My Neighbour has just returned from Australia to Edinburgh via one stop Dubai (I think). On arrival at Edinburgh he was ushered as quickly as possible through the airport, no checks and basically told to go home and self Isolate for 14 days. Anyone on that flight could have it ?? Just wonder if the same happened for all flights in the recent past from Italy and Spain ??? Great way to contain the Virus if they do not self Isolate.

Won't have been via Dubai given that Emirates have grounded all of their flights. Possibly via Doha?

it's well established that airport checks such as temperature are a waste of time. Indeed you're probably more at risk from being held in the airport queuing for the test.

You are probably being at more risk sitting in close proximity in an airliner, bet they were not sitting six feet apart, just seems a breeding ground for incoming people into the UK. Surely lockdown means lockdown, just hope all the passengers have followed the advice and stayed in self isolation. Just glad there are no US flights into the UK, have a look at flight radar and see how many flights are going on there.

No the UK has not locked down the boarders thankfully unlike a few other countries. Thatís just counterproductive and causes panic. planes are as much a risk as any public transportation and itís all about hygiene and cleanliness. The virus is NOT airborne, it is passed on through droplets or contaminated surfaces. Thatís why Iíd some is Iíll they must not travel. I believe many airlines flying are spacing out passengers too.
Personally canít wait to get on a plane and fly home to Edi from Tokyo but all in good time once I know my team is ok here. Just hope Qatar keep flying long enough, or is JAL to London then.....train maybe.....

The virus must be partly airbourne, where do the droplets come from.... noses and mouths and then transmitted through the AIR or onto other people or surfaces. I guess if it were only on surfaces, would we need to be six feet apart.

Anyway hope you are safe in Tokyo, have heard it's getting quite bad there, and manage to get home soon.

Looking at the current departure board there will only be 1 departure today overall and it is to London Heathrow on an A319! This is subject to change of course.

Yep. They say traffic is 90% down but this is more like 99.5%

Once again I looked at a flight radar last night at a peak time in the UK, glad to see its working over here, approx 30 aircraft in the air over the whole of the UK, none here in Scotland. (well done to the UK), some of which were overflights and the remainder mainly cargo flights and emergency flights. Then looked at the USA, thousands in the air all kinds passenger, corporate etc they will learn one day, hopefully before its too late.
