In a wide-ranging interview with Jonathan Hinkles, Loganair MD, he told us that the carrier has “no ambition to have 60+ aircraft and looking like flybe.”
11 of flybe’s most profitable international routes still unserved – but what are they? Southampton key, with 121% fare premium over Ryanair at Bournemouth.
Five routes revealed by Jet2 – with one unserved since 2014 and another ended this current year. In 2019, they had 191,000 passengers; we explore them.
Only 17 of flybe’s 77 international routes last Sept are now operated. WF are down by 342 YOY, with Southampton hardest hit. Which routes will return?
Eastern Airways starts Teesside – LHR, connecting the two after 11 years; Aer Lingus Regional fills core void from Belfast City; and Clermont-Ferrand’s again connected with Orly.
Aer Lingus Regional has launched Birmingham and Manchester from Belfast City, with these two routes having 546,000 passengers last year.
