Don't think any operator flying the route currently, SAS not on the route presently.

Bluster. Will mean and come to nothing unfortunately (particularly where ABZ airport benefit is concerned). Who comes up with these schemes and we’ve seen how much money is wasted (see Cairnryan) even in the application process.

ABZ CEO to step down

So as reported elsewhere Derek Provan, CEO of the owners of ABZ (also GLA & SOU) AGS, is to step down in 2023. So is it good riddance, or will nothing actually change as long as AGS remain owners, & the likes of Ferrovial (ugh!!) have a stake in the business? Will someone actually invest in the business as historically even back to BAA days ABZ was something of a cash cow & last in line for any meaningful investment? Even the runway ext was something of a basic effort & like others in the airports business, I shudder at the number of lost routes and airline operators over the years, albeit I do go back a long way these days!

I do wonder what the future holds for ABZ in particular going forward - renewables? tourism? Or doesn't it have one these days?

Logie to Oslo

6w (Sun - Fri) wef 5.9.22. Let's see if they start it, as I'm sure it had been deferred during pandemic times.

Was supposed to start last month - although that said, SAS took a summer break from end June to mid August each year

Logie to Oslo

Their first flight has started (restarted?) today, with E145. Guess we'll see how it does this time....

Another forum suggests Chinese students being brought to Aberdeen Uni.

Could be, it was also in Manchester in the last week too so that may tie in with other Uni’s in the N of England.

No, the Kuwait Airways A320NEO's operate a 3x weekly year-round scheduled service KWI-MAN (replaced by A330's at certain times of year). The MAN visits aren't student charters.

No surprise whatever...the number of domestic & european routes lost at ABZ over recent years is prolific to the point I wonder what future such regional airports such as ours have.
Air France has no plan to restore Aberdeen link to Paris (pressandjournal.co.uk)

I was evaluating a trip to France today and have decided not to bother at the moment as the routing and timing options for a work trip are fairly awful. I doubt we’ll ever get back to 3 daily direct however in the current circumstances when AMS or LHR are the routings and the lottery odds of disruption from airport or airline are high then video over Teams will continue to weaken personal bonds and overall effectiveness..

I thought the quotes were a little more neutral that the headline. KLM must've been coining it in on ABZ-AMS this summer, given that the only realistic competitor was cancelling so many flights. Prices with KL to European destinations are significantly higher than the same route from EDI/GLA with KL, even more of a difference than in the past.

However, since Schiphol seems afflicted by capacity issues, and airlines are having to reduce frequencies there, might there be a scenario where ABZ-CDG makes sense?
