What do you think is ahead for NI airports (BFS, BHD, LDY)?
With Norwegian's new TATL flights, is there any chance for connecting flights to a few destinations across Mainland Europe?

Love the idea of this thread.

Interesting to hear everyone's thoughts on airline service to OXF. Would need to be a RJ due to runway length however... Perhaps LH to MUC?

For NI I reckon the biggest missing player is WOW. I reckon due to the lack of American flights they could work with a 3x weekly flight to BFS.

As for OXF they need a proper functioning terminal before anything like LH, KLM etc gives the airport a try. Its nicely situated in the middle of London and Birmingham so the theory is there for a KLM connecting flight to the world (plus the students love a trip to AMS)

CWL should see an interesting movement soon. The Air France GP7200 that went bang over Greenland will be coming to South Wales, to the GE maintenance facility, for a full investigation.

Would they not just transport the engine to Cardiff rather than flying the aircraft over?

It'll come in a freighter, so as it's coming from Canada it might mean something interesting for the local spotters.
