Looks like Wizzair are also gone completely.
They were about 7/8 routes at their peak.

With the Green SNP marriage ratified at the weekend and clueless management the place is right up creek.

The budget airlines haven't half deserted the place. Looks like UA are going too after all these years. Only bookable via FRA now.

At least the SNP will be able to buy it for a pound eventually and say they saved it!

Can we guess the next cut? Icelandair must have their eyes looking east now.

Thats some good news. Its a good product. Presumably can run in parallel with established Air Transat as Rouge previously did. I am guessing AC will now no longer serve GLA in any form.
I don’t hold much hope for the WS Halifax service though longer term unless it has significant point to point.

I'm afraid I have to disagree re.this being a good project.
Research shows westjet cancel at short notice and are notorious for lengthy delays.
BAA as was must be kicking themselves selling the wrong airport

What is this ‘research’ you talk of?
Share with us the perceived issues during the last full season of YHZ-GLA

At least it’s something. And lots of social media about Frankie and Bennys reopening! Good times at GLA! Who’s doing their biz dev?

Icelandair

Looks like the drop in US passengers coming to Scotland has meant the GLA - KEF flights have been pulled by Icelandair.

My flights in Feb/Mar cancelled, on their booking engine it show flights but when you try to rebook no flights available. It makes sense restart in March and hope US/Canada market opens up again.

Icelandair

I can't believe this flight was just full of connections though.

Easyjet continuing Edinburgh to Iceland for winter 2022.

Most be some other reason Icelandair not willing to run the route for winter season

Point to point inbound Christmas shopping traffic to Glasgow used to be a large driver of volume, I assume that's no longer the case, especially with COVID?

Code share opportunity with BA via LHR....🤪who knows but if it's something exciting for GLA which I doubt all well and good.

COP26

I was unreliability informed today that Glasgow will not be taking any COP26 aircraft movements as everything will be going into Prestwick. I can't believe that Glasgow Airport is too busy or that they don't need a bit of extra income. Can anyone out there shed any light on the rumour?

I would imagine it would be to do with security provision. It is in a less densely populated area/not many members of the public using the airport, so I would imagine it would be easier for the security services to keep a lookout for any nefarious activity around the perimeter of the facility too.

When Presidents George W Bush and Trump visited Scotland, they have previously used Prestwick for example.
