Certainly seems to be doing well, and a 3rd weekly flight albeit covering a few high demand weeks is great news.
LCY meanwhile seems to be struggling with the Wed flight dropped for the next few weeks. Probably not too unexpected, I wonder if there is a few other little gems like Newquay that could be pulled out of the bag.

Newquay will be popular right now with people wanting to avoid travelling abroad. Let's see how it does once coronavirus is under control and people gain more confidence in going abroad.

I don't think we should expect LCY to begin to do any decent numbers until September. Whilst all international travel is still banned in my company, no-one seems interested in travelling domestically either right now and September seems to be the "mental restart" for normal business (when people are back after holidays/kids are back at school).

Hard to see what other domestic routes could do well. JER has been ambling on at around 2,500 pax a year recently (good loads on the Dash-8 which were only really bookable with a package deal) but could surely do more with extra capacity and if direct bookings were allowed. The route actually did 22k in 2006!

In my organisation, apart from some mandatory customer visits, we aren't expecting to be doing any travel or overnight stays for the rest of this financial year - the reductions have already gone into other budget areas.

Barely once a day during August and come early September, still only once a day; so the re-start plans look to be not as robust as previously billed.
Latest news is once a day from now until 27/9.

Increase to twice a day from 28/9 to 25/10.

Three flights a day from 26/10.

I'm on staycation in St Ives currently and very busy here - lots of northern accents about, but a lot less Germans than normal here at this time of year.

It was very briefly reported on social media earlier that Heathrow is being announced tomorrow by Eastern Airways, very quickly got taken down though so make of it what you will.

Would imagine just rumours after the mayor posted about some kind of announcement at 10am tomorrow.

Didn’t Eastern get kicked back in the most recent slot allocation? Unless something has changed?

was reported a few weeks back on social media. Daily E170 around lunchtime was what was reported. I guess we’ll find out if it’s true.

I think the news is the charvas are having to pay a 20p deposit on the scooters.Aim is to stop them using the A19 to commute between raves?

Another waste of the mayors money!

They certainly have some slots at Heathrow but nothing on which you could mount a long-term service. The slots have been allocated without grandfather rights attached.

long enough for the mayor to get re-elected perhaps?

Looks like this is in addition to LCY.

From what I can gather, LCY won’t run on Wednesday’s for the rest of August but then goes double daily from September on the S2000.

LHR is daily on the E70.

Wonder if codeshares for connections are allowed.

Considering the current state of the economy, exactly how blank is the Mayor's chequebook?!

The airports website says:

In just over an hour you can be arriving at UK’s biggest airport offering you access to more than 180 locations in 84 countries across the world.
No mention of any codeshares as yet, but there doesn't seem to be a full press release out, just what was said at the announcement. Does anybody know how handy the timings are for connections?

Keen to see this as a frequent flyer. Looking at those timings, it’s going to be pretty limiting for transatlantic as most of these head out in the morning and early afternoon, so too late for all but the Saturday flight. Heading east though could be more interesting but of course it all depends who they partner with.
