As per the LCY thread, no one, including residents, will be allowed to enter the rock after tomorrow, so not sure what the point of flights to/from London would be, whatever gateway used.

You mean like the other Flybe franchises - Eastern Airways and Blue Islands?

Franchise = a regular airline paying another airline for the use of its (better known) brand and (more efficient)...

That is not correct. Part of their business is ACMI (the E190s and the operation at IOM), but another part (flights from SEN) is/was a straightforward franchise operation run by Stobart at its own...

You are right of course if the frequency was to go down to 2x daily. The question for me is if a LCY-based aircraft would result in a business case for keeping the route or if it would simply mean...

Would that work? Hardly any BACF aircraft do not overnight at LCY. While the issue with the time difference between the UK and the continent is an explanation for that, making morning services...

I guess that's where they have an aircraft sitting on the ground with nothing better to do on saturdays - nothing returning to LBA from SOU on friday afternoons.

Providing feed at LHR can at best be a longterm goal for a time when a third runway provides additional slots at LHR. In the absence of that, VS would need to sacrifice longhaul slots to accommodate...

A single daily flight does not guarantee great connectivity. It will be mainly on high frequency routes to the continent (most of which are served via LCY as well). For longhaul or low-frequency...

I should have asked differently, so here we go: When IOM switched from Stobart to Flybe in March this year, where did the based ATR72s move to? They have only been deployed elsewhere now for...

My understanding is that Loganair are dropping the Saab 2000s (and Dornier 328s) asap and are replacing them with six (IIRC) Embraer 135/145s - which are no good for IOM-LCY as either too small or...
