Any more in the pipeline about these scheduled flights starting from CAX in the near future.
On their website it says that they are trying to attract these flights from CAX.
http://www.carlisleairport.co.uk/flights.htm
Would be nice to see CAX regain a regular scheduled flight

Well if FR can make STN-BLK work I wouldn't be surprised to see them have a go at CAX. They are getting 737NGs at a fast rate, so I guess it's a possibility.

GKirk - leave us 'irish sods' alone.  Smile
If it wasn't for us Irish you wouldn't have Ryanair. Or Aer Lingus. Or....actually no - you're right - we are sods!

Nah, I talk perfect sense.  Wink/being sarcastic You talk tripe about me talking tripe! LOL.

I very much hope T3 don't start DUB-CAX, as its airfares are normally exceedingly expensive, so you'd probably only attract businesspeople, with tourists/locals probably preferring to fly into GLA, PIK, NCL or MME.

I bet you a pound FR won't serve CAX from DUB. Hell, it once looked at flying DUB-MSE but decided against it, so can't imagine DUB-CAX would be better (well, thinking about it from the POV that there's no flights DUB-MSE, even though there now are).

AT4s ARE the most cost-effective machines when compared to, say, DH3s, F50s, etc. And AT7s are even better: for 15% more costs than the AT4s, you get quite a few more passengers, a faster speed and so on. I suspect LON-CAX would warrant a twice-daily (for the businesspeople) service with an aircraft of AT4 size or less, with DUB initially warranting a once-daily service. I am surprised that BHD/BFS wasn't announced.

Depends on where in london you want to fly with your ATR's.... LGW is essential to provide interline feed.

DUB and BHD will work twice daily.

AT4's are perfect for this type market, Dont forget about the Dornier 328's either... excellent aircraft.

It will never happen, unless Aer Arann or Eastern does it. RE could try a DUB-CAX-BHD-CAX-DUB leg twice daily. Don't know how Eastern could attempt it though, unless they try a NWI-BHD-CAX-DUB-CAX-BHD-NWI-DUB-CAX-DUB-NWI routing.

Perhaps Scot Airways could base 2/3 Do328s at CAX, operating as follows:
#1 CAX-LON-CAX-AMS-CAX-LON-CAX
#2 CAX-DUB-CAX-CDG-CAX-DUB-CAX
#3 CAX-BHD-CAX-LON-CAX-SOU-CAX

GKirk - get real... 2/3 Dorniers cost millions that Scotairways don't have. Thats way too much capacity for such a small unknown airport.

Better to let Eastern kick the tires at CAX first, then RE will come in.

I'd be gobsmacked if T3 commence ops from CAX, the only routes they serve are ones which have been dropped by other carriers and have a proven customer base.

Perhaps BMI regional, with a leased, "cost-effective", AT4??  Wink/being sarcastic

Perhaps more seriously, maybe Loganair with an SF3 would be an ideal option?

The same can be said of Brits and Dublin.  Smile

A DUB-CAX flight would be great for Carlisle Utd - half their team seem to be Irish and the owner is Irish. More importantly it would give Sellafield haters over here quicker access to the place for their protests.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

The flights numbers are Scot Airways, but the flights are only 30 mins long so they are not to London.
