Airlines don't generally do press releases about dropped routes, unless the press pick up on it and run a story

Hi

Last few weeks there has been an AN-26 flying LPL-PAD. Anyone know what it's for?

Urgent car parts, a Jota 146 has been doing the same. Stocking up for possible supply disruption.

Second time this week my breakfast cup of tea has been rattled by the sound of a heavy turboprop ( badly out of sync ) passing over my house. FR24 reveals it is the RAF-Avia AN26 Yl-RAD. It's a pretty distinctive sound..........

PS I live on the Cheshire/Derbyshire border and it was at FL180 - yikes! How loud is that thing

Hardly, more likely line stops.

If you're going to stock parts ahead of 29th March then the volumes involved, and the time currently left before "B-Day", make trucking them the most efficient / cheapest option, and since the motor industry is run by bean counters they won't be spending money needlessly on logistics.

From media reports, it appears Blue Air's decision to close its operation at LPL is down to the uncertainty caused by Brexit and the difficulty of operating from the UK to Europe after March unless they have a UK registered operators licence. As LPL is their only UK base, that would, no doubt, be uneconomic for a one plane operation.

I believe the Eastern European flights will still run, but sad to see their based aircraft go.

The news rail link from Chester / North Wales into Liverpool Lime Street is beginning to be promoted by Transport for Wales. The service will benefit passengers travelling to Liverpool Airport by was of calling at Liverpool South Parkway where an airport bus link is provided.
