BHD cancellations and flight charges

What is going on with Emerald at BHD. Lots of cancelled flights daily. Flight to SOU last week was brought forwards 2 hours with 6 hours notice and they have just informed me this morning that my flight back from SOU this afternoon is leaving at 1525 and not 1710. They seem to be a shambles of an airline

To be fair to Emerald the main factor impacting their operations in Belfast are due to the delayed issue of the AOC from the CAA. They have crews all trained and transferred to the UK AOC, unfortunately issuing of the AOC is taking longer than anticipated. The juggling of flight times I would guess is the airlines best efforts to minimise disruption to the majority of passengers, perhaps combining flights rather than cancelling etc.....

Hopefully once they receive approval to.start their UK ops these issues will all be resolved

There was some talk on here a couple of weeks ago that they had the UK AOC, but there has been no publication to that effect in the CAA Official Record and the CAA's website of licence holders doesn't show Emerald there. What's the delay?

Thanks for the info. Hopefully they sort themselthemselves out soon. Flybe are worse so hopefully one of the 2 will become reliable.

As of this evening, Emerald have been granted their Operating Licence and approval from the CAA to commence commercial flight operations.

Does this mean no more cancellations or are the recent cancellations not related ?

This will mean a more robust service from early next week, there is only one aircraft on the UK register at the moment. The next one will be transferred over in the next couple of weeks.

What's going on? CAA today tweeted about BA Euroflyer getting its AOC but no statement has been made about Emerald's UK AOC and there's nothing in today's CAA Official Record. G-CMJN was down to operate the BHD-GLA-BHD this evening but the rotation has ended up cancelled. Have they got the UK AOC or not?

CMJN is now listed as operating Glasgow tomorrow. It could just be CAA favouritism towards BA as I don't believe either European Cargo or Flybe were mentioned and both recieved AOC's last year, though at the time the former was the subject to much scepticism. However Jethro's does not yet list Emerald UK as holding an AOC.

Both Flybe and European were listed in the Official Record when they got their AOC/OLs though, and there is no mention of Emerald in this week's publication. Maybe the tweet is optional - seem to recall Norse had one as well as BA Euroflyer.

Is there an intention to move more aircraft from Emerald to Emerald UK in the next few months, or will G-CMJN remain the sole aircraft on the UK register for the time being ?

There is another aircraft presently being registered with a G Reg in Dublin. This aircraft should be positioned back to BHD shortly.
