Lufthansa and Belfast might appear in the same sentence. I don't think it belongs on this particular thread though....

Like the much mooted QR and EM routes over the last few years, any potential mainline/legacy airline will take one look at BFS and decide that DUB is a better option….unless you have a fleet of E75s or E95s, and there is a different option where demonstrable success is apparent.

If LH are doing a route to NI, it’ll be BHD using a E95.

You could be right. If KLM can make AMS work, which is mostly connecting passengers, then no reason why Lufthansa can't make FRA work for the same purpose. While BHD might seem logical, BFS could be attractive in that there are no legacy network carriers there. It would likely be Cityline territory. Lets wait and see.

Had heard that BHD making an important route announcement soon. I wonder if it is LH or additional EZY destinations

Interesting to see Eastern Airways there! Hope it happens!

Lets hope BUD, PMI, VLC & WMI all get put on sale soon by Ryanair.

Why has Eastern applied for slots in Bfs? Is it because they face EI Regional and Flybe on Bhd-Sou and think operating from Bfs might be a more attractive option?

Positive as ever - not launching before Summer 2024, so plenty of time to assess the position.

Still think United will be back with NEO/MAX. IIRC, the 757 was profitable, but more profitable elsewhere...

That's correct,the problem with the United was the month of January load factor was very low it sometimes took till March for the loads to recover to the 80% load factor for the route to break even,basically the problems with the United service was the months of Jan/Feb loads were somewhat low and took maybe till Mar/Apr to recover to the levels that they wanted so they deployed the aircraft to Dublin to make more money only for that we probably would still have it at Belfast.

From Travelmole:New airline Fly Atlantic plans to launch transatlantic flights at Belfast International Airport.

The startup wants to fly to the US and Canada, as well as short haul European destinations from summer 2024.

It still has to gain a licence and secure aircraft.

It plans to generate 1,000 jobs over the first five years.

Fly Atlantic aims to make Belfast a new hub linking Europe with North America.

It would initially operate six aircraft under current plans.

Chief executive Andrew Pyne said: “The lack of direct transatlantic air services has clearly been an impediment to Northern Ireland.”

“We already have offices at the airport and will now be building out the infrastructure.”
