FR appear to have cut a few AGP/ALC/PMI/BCN flights for the month of June.

The first ALC looks to be 89% full (168 Pax)

To be replaced by FAO I believe on some days. No shock that June flights rolled back as no clear guidance on next stage or relaxation. I think India variant will make some think twice about travel especially first few months of Summer

It sounds to be getting quite out of hand. Eastern have brought forward the re-launch of Cardiff services and will fly from 27 May - so clearly trying to get well established ahead of EI Regional / Stobart. I'm told Eastern management were in BHD yesterday. There's then rumour of Eastern having a go at Stobart on Leeds / Belfast City in view of their service cuts and Stobart having a go at Loganair on Glasgow / Belfast City after their deferred re-start date. You'd have thought the airport would be trying to encourage stability during the re-build period rather than this dogfight.

Quite impressive line up by Stobart in the guise of Aer Lingus REGIONAL. With 9 destinations now, what will come next, my guess would be that there may be gaps for more leisure orientated routes in between schedules, stand outs might be LPL and NCL.

I wouldn't rule out Saturday flights to JER and RNS in summer 2022.

Looks like loganair have dropped GLA-BHD, when I seen this at the time route was stopped at the time until September I did hear something at the time Stobart Air might take over the route. Interesting to see if Stobart Air Cut back at Leeds and Eastern Airways run flights to Leeds instead.

Leeds seems to be a good performer on relative passenger loads. I’d expect Stobart to defend their turf on that route.

leeds was a winner for Flybe too when they operated the route. At one stage it was 5x daily and you could never get a seat on it apart from the 12:35 flight. I suspect stinker will continue to operate it.

I understand T3 is twice a day to LBA. Surprised at LM thought they would have stuck at the GLA. But a dogfight none the less.

In the Manx Airlines days it was always BHD-LPL, not BFS, then when Easyjet came along everything moved to BFS. There has been both Belfast airports served since, Ryanair and Flybe have done it. I'm sure there is a market but they will need to be able stand up to Easyjet which is very dominant between Belfast and Liverpool.

I agree BACsuperVC10 (great handle by the way!), I think this is why a daily rotation for a leisure audience may work on LPL and NCL to for in between frequency on the bigger routes, rather than trying to take on easyJet. In any case Stobart will only have so many airframes available for BHD, DUB will come back and expectations are that Ireland UK will be quite unrestricted by end of July.
I believe an update by Irish government will come this week in that regard.

Manx Airlines was a great little airline and they were trailblazers with low fares too, specific flights off peak were sold on 'farecracker' flight and BHD was included!

Yes Manx were a great little airlines and for many years they provided a dependable service. I remember the "farecracker" fares too.

Most likely cancelled in like with their other cancellations from IOM. If anything STK taking over is probably near the bottom of the list of possible reasons in this case.

Could be a great little filler at off peak times miss morning between rotations on bigger routes like BHX, MAN & EDI, and a very quick rotation too, at not far from 70miles flying!

Stobart Air Gone?!?

Stobart Air Gone!

Stobart Air appear to be entering liquidation following the unsuccessful purchase from Ettyl.

All flights today are unfortunately cancelled and aircraft grounded.
