Looks like it’ll be axed as Loganair have previously been reluctant to add LCY for long periods, thus allowing them to change over fairly promptly.

I still think there is a market for LCY though, depends on the Gaming companies whether they want City or connections, probally both! When I used to commute, LCY was always great but office was a couple of stops up DLR.

Update on the IOM-LGW easyJet. EZY have been granted more slots at LGW to operate an increased LGW-IOM service.

For Summer 2021, they're holding 2 pairs of slots for IOM-LGW every day except Tuesday when (surprisingly) it's 3. Apart from that extra Tuesday flight, is that an increase?

The hopes for IOM-LHR have hit a brick wall it seems as Loganair have been denied slots at LHR for S21

LHR must be feeling optimistic! I'd expect that there would be gaps as not all the long haul traffic will be back. Unless they have an even longer queue of requets from LGW.

Just posted this across on the MME thread, but exactly the same applies for IOM-LHR.

It was always highly unlikely that anyone was going to get LHR slots for Summer 2021 right from the off.

For Winter 2020, those airlines like Rwandair, Ukraine, China Airlines and Eastern who secured slots have been given these without grandfather rights attached. As the "use it or lose it" rule has been suspended through a slot waiver, airlines at Heathrow can hand back their slots but still protect their long-term access to them. Those slots are then being handed out on a short-term basis.

For Summer 2021, it is not clear whether there will be any change to the use it or lose it rule. Every airline has reclaimed the slots to which they hold grandfather rights and so Heathrow (as of now) is technically full for Summer 2021. Of course, there will be a lot of airlines either hoping for a slot waiver or going into deals with other airlines to babysit slots for them. None of those will be visible at this point in time.

What you see now and where things end up for Summer 2021 LHR slots will be two very different pictures.

slots secured

Loganair slots at Heathrow | News |

Loganair has secured slots at London Heathrow airport in readiness for a new service to the Isle of Man.

The Scottish regional airline was understood to be in talks with the island’s government, which is considering whether the taxpayer should foot the bill for daily flights to Britain’s biggest airport until the border reopens.

A spokesman for Loganair told the Manx Independent: ’Loganair has been able to secure slots at Heathrow to reinstate services between the Isle of Man and London Heathrow.

’It remains engaged in discussions with the Isle of Man Government, which is supporting the island’s air services through the period of reduced travel demand as borders remain closed for general travel, about plans to launch the service.’

This week’s Examiner reported that speculation about Heathrow was revived after people said they were unable to book flights to London City airport in December on the Loganair website.

UK Aviation News reported that if approved the service to Heathrow is expected to begin soon.

So far they’ve only got ‘slots’ even though there not technically for the W20/21 period. S21 remains at nil currently

Flyerguy, the way in which the slots are allocated means that they are - just like any other slot - a permission to operate. It's exactly the same for MME-LHR and several Chinese services which are running at LHR at the moment - these don't have the usual grandfather rights to base an operation for W21 around though.

They applied at BHX in S21 for services to ABZ, INV and IOM.

Loganair have secured use of slots from another operator to operate beyond W21 and the Government will underwrite the route until the borders reopen.
