There is a statement from the Airport MD today that states that the government have not called in the planning application,but this is tempered by him quote "Sadly though, the permission may still be subject to a legal challenge. I would encourage the opposition groups not to seek any further delay to the delivery of the construction phase – and the 265 jobs that go with it – by seeking to challenge the permission. "
How would this challenge be implemented?

Judicial Review? If you have deep pockets to fund it if the final decision doesn't go your way!

BA S22

Some good news, BA appear to have some S22 flights on sale from SOU starting from 30/04, currently bookable up to early June. Pretty much identical to the original plan for this year at the moment but it is early days.

Alicante - 1x weekly
Bergerac - 3x weekly
Berlin - 1x weekly
Edinburgh - 1x weekly
Faro - 1x weekly
Florence - 2x weekly
Ibiza - 2x weekly
Limoges - 1x weekly
Malaga - 2x weekly
Mykonos - 1x weekly
Nice - 1x weekly
Palma - 2.5x weekly (2 dep, 3 arr)

EDIT: KLM to Amsterdam is also on sale 2x daily at the same times as before on an E75 for S22

Some creative minds writing that press release:

Unemployment is at record levels after the pandemic


Is it? Yesterday's unemployment figures were pretty good all things considering and fell for the fourth month running.

Delaying tactic only as the outcome will not be any different, waste of time and money but hey this is what they do!

...& perhaps not if the legal challenge gets caught up in a reformulated/restrictive Government regional airport policy coupled with a tough green agenda coming down the track.

Princess Nut Nut/Attenborough & our future King were all hard at work at the G7.

100%. I think the government is a bit busy at the moment not that these delusional hypocrites would notice. What a world we live in where bullying and nuisance is tolerated so long as it’s wrapped up in a supposed noble cause. The airport was having over 2 million annual passengers not so long ago so a cap of 3 million isn’t much more.

The one thing that I wish the airport would mention more is that during the planning process anyone can lodge an objection or a support. It’s my understanding that the majority were in support of the application which should be the end of the argument. More residents support the extension so how these extremists think they speak for all of us is lunacy. Let’s not forget the planning meeting went on for a few days to hear all their baseless moaning so it’s not like they haven’t had a fair chance to speak all their rubbish. Meanwhile the fifth cruise terminal is in its final stages of completion just next door to the historic flour mill that ABP pulled down and there is a brand new huge cruise ship fresh from the ship yard spewing huge clouds of smoke non stop. Funny how these mentalists don’t have a problem with all that.

Have just looked at the AXO website, their case for a review and the attempt at crowdfunding. Had considered invoicing them for my valuable time taken to read such drivel!

Looks if AXO & Co will shortly reach their 10K crowdfunding target to mount the Judicial Review. Apart from the enrichment of their legal team Leigh Day and David Wolfe QC and delay to work starting, doubt it is going to result in anything more. Now a waiting game for all concerned.

TCAS FAN,
It looks like ASK and Co are going to be a serious threat to the Airport plans,they seem to be building up cash and steam with a strong backing.
one things for sure and that is there won't be any work going on this year!

With all due respect, you have been wrong in your assumptions in every step of this process to date. It will happen and most likely commence early next year!

I doubt that 10k is going to go far, have you checked QC's hourly rates? That assumes that he/she is not one of the local NIMBYs or a fellow tree hugger!

Good to see KLM resume on Monday and Aurigny to Alderney on Thursday. BA will hopefully commence IBZ/PMI soon and may look to run MAH as they do at LCY!

The 10k has now been reached and passed, I'm not sure where DW QC sits morally on the whole climate topic? He has helped fight against the 3rd runway at Heathrow so guess this is why AXO have appointed him, the CCC (Climate Change Committee) published there parliament progress report yesterday, which could be bad timing for SOU and there plans, as you say a waiting game, but no doubt a long and drawn out one.

See that the goalposts have moved, AXO & Co now target 25K, with just under half of it raised. Have they worked out that QCs are an expensive playmate?

Likelihood is there’s going to be an expensive bill for them to pay at the end of this process!
