"Liverpool gets the service it deserves
Five flights every weekday to London commencing 23.2.2004
At last Liverpool's fight for a direct airlink with London has ended with the launch of our new service to London City Airport which will commence on 23rd February 2004. With five flights every weekday business and leisure travellers will find the 55 minute journey time a massive improvement over the options available to them at present.

LCY-MAN is doing very well by all accounts. Not sure what the yields are but it is soon to be increased to 12 flights each weekday so it must be making them decent money.
Incidentally, didn't VLM operate LCY-LPL for a very brief period a few years ago at a much lower frequency than the new proposed venture? Wonder what has changed to make them think it will be more of a success this time around? Also seems unusual that they are choosing LPL due to it being so near to their existing MAN operation. Maybe they can add LCY-LBA next! (I can dream).
