There's a lot of potential from smaller UK airports, so long as they operate primarily on domestic flights. For example, there's Oxford - which could support flights to GLA, EDI, BHD and DUB; there's Chester - which could support flights to EDI, BHD, DUB and, possibly, GLA; there's Carlisle - which could probably support flights to LGW, BHD and DUB; there's Robin Hood - which could possibly support flights to EDI, GLA, DUB, LGW; there's Norwich - which could possibly support flights to DUB, BHD and GLA; and so on. All of these would have to be operated on at least a twice-daily basis to be worthwhile, and on a low-cost, no-frills basis using a smaller, cost-efficient aircraft, like the AT4. In addition, AMS and CDG could be served from Chester, and possibly from Robin Hood and Oxford, while Norwich could have a CDG link........
