Morning & afternoon flights are cancelled, the late is still running, as it had been throughout the pandemic - probably more to do with borders remaining closed & no easing of travel restrictions announced.

BA CityFlyer could operate it themselves from LCY with an E170.? One thought.

Just had a look at Loganair's Website to see if its possible to book a flight with them to LCY but not yet..

See what comes as and when normal ops resume. Theres still a lot to iron out with the LPL,MAN and BHX routes. Main contenders are Stobart and Loganair.

I'm also told that Loganair want to start Southampton route. But it really does depend what happens with Stobart too.

Why?, SOU has always been marginal at best, even in the times of plenty.

Seems a lifetime ago now, but wasn't the story that BA were not particularly happy over the ATR on the LCY route for several reasons , certainly it struggled to keep the schedule for the brief period it operated the normal timetable

"To be used by whom exactly?"

the shifty folk in "financial services" moving between tax havens of course without landing in the UK and using up their days

Ok, apparently I am daft indeed.

I thought this kind of business was nowadays done from behind a computer screen with electronic trading and digital filings, but it seems there are still gentlemen who travel around with a nondescript suitcase full of cash if the business warrants 200 or so seats per week between those two off-shore paradises.

It does on the face of it appear to be the most bonkers of pairings but best of luck to them.

I don't think it does, but it does seem bonkers for an ATR72 or their E jet. The people on both Islands are clearly itching to get away - somewhere, anywhere. Only if you live on an Island can you appreciate that. I'm not convinced they'll fill them that much but there will certainly be some demand if it's the only place they can travel till the end of August without quarantine restrictions on return.

But hey, Aurigny are the experts are losing cash so it's right up their street.

All of which assumes there is still a financial services industry on the Isle of Man. If there is, London or Jersey would be much more logical destinations.

Complete waste of time and effort. If some financial services bods need to commute, hire a charter at a more useful timed shedule.
