Rather the other way round. The Joy of Brexit.

Why does Brexit stop them running BHX-AMS?

Eurowings..."2pw to start with,possibly additional flights if popular" is not as written in the release but an interpretation.

Wizz

That's now 11 routes all being well from BHX this summer, I wonder if there are any base discussions going on? Wizz certainly seem to like BHX.

Great to see some positive news at BHX this summer from Wizz, Jet2, Eurowings and Eastern with their GIB service (all Covid dependent of course). Let's hope some of the remaining lost BE routes are picked up and EK, AI and T5 restore services and frequency.

It appears that Air India have postponed plans to restart services here, not surprising looking at the latest Covid-19 data for India

Emirates restart 01 May at the earliest with a daily B777

If Air India scrap BHX it will be another coffin in BHXs long haul aspirations, espicially given the plethora of Indian airlines who have secured slots at LHR

There's no suggestion they're scrapping BHX services, but honestly, given the trajectory of new cases in India, and the consequences for quarantine rules being tightened in UK postponing for a month or so appears perfectly sound to me.

If Air India scrap BHX I'm pretty sure other carriers will take over the route at some stage.

Great news about EZY.

Maybe a base in the future?
