I wonder if BA Cityflyer could pick up some of these temporarily until a permanent solution is found. Keeps the business inside the IAG Group and crews busy until (if) summer season actually starts.

BACF will operate Belfast to Exeter and Leeds. Not sure for how long.“Aer Lingus will operate the Dublin/Edinburgh, Dublin/Manchester, Belfast City/Manchester, Belfast City/Birmingham and Belfast City/Edinburgh routes.

BA City Flyer will operate the Belfast City/Exeter route and the Belfast City/Leeds Bradford route.

Plans for the Dublin/Kerry and Dublin/Donegal Public Service Obligation routes are still being worked out.

Customers due to travel on the Belfast City/East Midlands, Dublin/Glasgow and Dublin/Newquay routes are being offered alternative flights”

I'm imagining they will run the routes for now while they organise Regional again, prices are currently a kings ransom but they were with EIR and EZY are currently too, unsurprisingly.

It'll be interesting to see will anyone pick up the leftovers, Eastern, Loganair etc

I believe T3 already had slots for LBA filed for a while but not used. Maybe they will now

Looks to be BHX and EDI once daily and
MAN 11x weekly

MAN is important to EI for the new Long fights so connecting flight from BHD - MAN will be a priority

EI to BHX/MAN/EDI

What about after July 18th? I've got BHX-BHD-BHX booked for 25th to 28th July. Will EI continue on this route? EZY fares to BFS on these dates have already gone rocketing up.

The issue is from 19th July full Int travel is to be permitted from ROI and the fleet is back to work they don't have the capacity. Perhaps BA CityFlyer might be able to get themselves sorted to allocate an aircraft short term at BHD (or find a carrier to fill the gap short term) and EI will operate what they can out of Dub.

There is strong possibility that BA Cityflyer might be operating all flights that Stobart Air ran from BHD by then. And may announce this in the coming days

Makes a kinda sense. Are they part of IAG under BA Mainline. They already diversifying from LCY with the new base in SOU. I suppose we will wait and see. BCAF had already committed to a PMI flight.

Two units required for BHD schedule, 1 for LHR, the other for the 3 routes EDI, BHX & MAN.
Already are 2 units at BHD.
