No, Corredon has already visited INV three times in the last few weeks, including earlier this afternoon in fact. FR24 shows it as scheduled this day next week also.
Routes Online also reports this:

Saturday is the day they do the Bergen run in the summer so it must be using some of the spare time the ERJ has.


Aircraft seems to be EMA based, operating EMA-INV daily and EMA-BRU twice daily.

INV-MAN is to be increased to 4 daily on weekdays from 26/10/2019, with the extra flight being operated as a tag-on from SYY on the Saab 340.

From the BBC News website this morning:-

The 'tax haven' status of Inverness Airport has been challenged by rival operators.
Passengers flying to and from the Highland Capital have been exempt from paying APD since 1994.
Scotland wide plans to abolish APD were dropped in May and now Aberdeen Airport is calling for greater
parity with its Inverness rival.
Highland and Islands Airports Ltd said the exemption "must remain in place to protect remote and rural communities"

yeah the fun of that tax break should be over now. Stimulated some demand (?lasting) but not fair on others eg ABZ if they cant commit to removing it at all airports.

You are advocating making it more expensive for inbound tourism, so a quick search of visiting Europe, London and elsewhere no longer involves INV as it's a sin against the environment to not take enormous tax off the public. So how many guest houses, hotels, pubs, restaurants, bars and attractions take a hit? What does that do to local employment?
I am baffled at the lack of understanding of just how disconnected a location can become without a reliable and frequent connection into a hub airport. INV gets a LHR connection after years of trying, it becomes a success and the next stage is "how do we undermine this cos it;'s no fair"?
Good Lord people! if you want Chinese tourists to come and spend the money, , if you want genuine inward investment, you have to be properly competitive, something my old homeland just doesn't get at so many levels of public life.

As the oil industry winds down, Aberdeen may become more and more in need of similar treatment, the trick is to help ABZ rather than hammering INV. APD is nothing more than just another tax as the spending power of any large org can become insatiable, private and public alike.

Is there any independent research on the affects of APD?

And if you think it's an onerous tax some of the greens are starting to talk about taxing aviation fuel at the same rates as vehicle fuel.....................

But that would replace APD. There is an international treaty which makes both aviation fuel and commercial marine fuel tax free, which is a subsidy to international as opposed to domestic trade.
