Glasgow-4

CANARIAN AIRWAYS IS BORN, THE NEW CANARY AIRLINE
Today Wednesday, the Cabildo of Tenerife hosted the presentation of Canarian Airways, a new air carrier led by hoteliers Tinerfeños and One Airways, which will begin operating from June from Tenerife South Airport with a single 144-seater plane.
The new airline will launch from next March the sale and booking of tickets, flying to destinations such as Madrid, Barcelona, Vigo and Bilbao, Glasgow, Cardiff and Berlin.

Seeing the NCL post re: Corendon flights to AYT and DLM for S22, I see GLA included too. These charter-esque routes seem to come and go. Lets see if they actually transpire as seems fairly big sudden expansion. General population may not be aware unless heavily advertised or linked with tour operator use.

EZY trying to wade in on market share on AYT. If they continue S22 will no doubt push Corendon off... feast or famine

think GLA was always planned to be withdrawn until Easter 2022 at the earliest. No idea about BFS.

EasyJet add 2 new winter routes:
• 2x weekly LPA (MON/FRI)
• 2x weekly TFS (WED/SAT)

I know these operated briefly for a few flights in W20 like EDI but now on sale for next winter too.

Edit:
• 2x weekly AGA (THU/SUN)

How many times has that been tried and dropped over the years along with Marrakesh? They come, they go. The punters have no idea where it is unless prompted by a travel agent. Was a bit like when TUI had to try and flog Cape Verde/Boa

Its a shame, but got to agree. Better off sending the aircraft to TFS year round.A guarantee money maker from GLA

What is the future for GLA?

I have not been to my home town or airport for nearly two years. Last time I was there I saw a remarkable decline in the airport. Quiet terminal (went through 4 times on separate flights), very few aircraft on the ground, and a general apathy. It actually reminded me of Prestwick many years ago in quiet times.

Carriers and the management team for whatever reason are unable to encourage, motivate and persuade new scheduled blood.

Sure we can all point at COVID, but I'm sure it will pass. What then? With Virgin the latest casualty to the east coast has GLA anything more to offer beyond feeding London, Amsterdam and Dublin? Sure there will always be some charter market (although I'm sure it's much less than when I was even a lot younger many years ago now). Emirates must surely despite the investment they put into at GLA must be having a re think or perhaps with market research they may consider EDI as the way forward.

I feel sorry for GLA. I also feel that no wonder what the situation is market wise the management team need to be visibly Pro active to encourage carriers to their airport and not just shop retail units. Has any of the shop units closed?

I agree - even pre-Covid Glasgow was developing a nasty run-down feel. Lots of temporary "fixes" and no overall plan. A great deal of refurbishment and a clear out of old junk and buildings is really needed
