I'm always surprised no one else jumped on BHX - GIB since Monarch's demise.

Apparently to use an E190 on GIB-LCY, BHX, SOU and possibly some others, I'm told.

The Embraer 135 was up on itís first air-test since returning from Kenya last year. Looks like the other one is also due back.
Anybody know if they have plans for the 135ís or are they to be sold on?

Look like Eastern may have been Awarded the PSO for NQY-LGW?

Nothing is official until an announcement is made about the slots for LGW - NQY

I assume that this would need a Newquay based aircraft & they could fit in a couple of flights to other U.K. destinations BHX or Teeside perhaps ?

Fingers crossed for NQY-BHX, even if just summer only. I used to fly this route a fair bit and always good loads on BE and not necessarily bargain basement fares.

Iím not sure itís a done deal that theyíve won the PSO itself. LM also have a large amount now at LHR for NQY by the looks of the recent allocations.

If Eastern do start flying to LGW, it appears they are planning to do so with a 76 seat aircraft.

76 seater plane so more likely Embraer E170, as the ATR 72-600 seats 72

Routes to GIB now looking like they might have been a wise move!

Does anyone know if/what measures will be in place to prevent folk using GIB as a route to/from the Spanish mainland, so as to avoid "yellow" zone rules?

Is the route still due to start on May 24th?

British passports are now stamped when entering the EU so that would give it away. The back route to Spain is Portugal. An open border with no stamp.
