It will be a corrugated steel shed, probably blue, green or brown in colour, with meagre little plastic window frames. Cheap and nasty and probably a 20 year lifespan at best, IMHO.

NWI-EXT is a clever one.

BE cut a deal (five years?) with Regional & City Airports Ltd. to serve AGP and ALC from both NWI and EXT. A crew and a/c based in EXT can fly EXT-AGP-NWI-EXT in the AM,...

I suspect domestic routes will be very difficult to sustain. Operator / London airport / and timings will be critical.

I'm a bit bored of complaints about "extortionate fares to AMS." Very few KLM passengers at NWI are O&D. Most are connecting in Schiphol.
