Anyone know what company Ryanair where doing the Milan flights for in the Winter Season?
And if the company will find another airline to replace Ryanair?
As Ryanair never put them on sale, always showed up as 'Sold Out' on app.
So must have been for a touring company.

I flew Belfast International to Gatwick yesterday and at around 5pm there was a bit of a queue at security. They had one passenger X-ray machine in use and two machines for checking bags. It felt busier than Gatwick had been at 6am. However often it's difficult to tell. There was however a lot longer wait at BFS for security and those Disney style queues where you go up and down the line inside a taped of area are enough to drive passengers mad.

When the flight was called there was no gate area as such, and no speedy boarding. I can't remember the gate number but it was a set of stairs next to the causeway lounge. Passengers stood on the stairs and when they got to the bottom of the stairs their boarding passes were scanned and they went straight to the plane.

I guess both of these situations cause people to panic a bit and then social distancing goes out the window.

Can't believe people are still moaning about social distancing when it comes to airports.. unfortunately there is a lack of staff within all areas of the airport as with most industries, many took the offer of redundacy during the pandemic. It will take months to even out with recruitment, even with this it'll still be challenging at times due to those having to isolate.

It will only get worse as traffic light system changes along with testing requirements in the future, not to mention seasonal Halloween and Christmas traffic.

My advice is if you need to travel, brace yourself for a few months... we will more than likely see queues out the door, limited opening of security channels, it's not going to be nice..

from BBC NI

Easyjet passengers kept on Belfast plane for two hours in security operation - BBC News

From BTA PSNI spokesperson said: “Police officers attended Belfast International Airport on Sunday evening after security concerns were raised in relation to a flight travelling to Belfast from London.

"The flight landed safely and the aircraft was detained until a number of enquiries were carried out to ensure the safety of all passengers and staff. No further police action was required.”

Great to see VY at BFS. Prices quite keen 35 on way out and can get 9 flight back from Paris Orly.

Will they move BCN to BFS for next summer season?

Looking at the seat maps, it seems to be an Airbus A321 operating the ORY route which is capable of carrying 220 pax.
