Hi

Just wondering if there is a gap for such an airline providing regional travel to business consumers. Poss from LCY? If so what routes do you think there is demand for from LCY or even another airport like MAN or EDI!

I could see EOS or Maxjet start a regional business class airline for Europe but I think the possibility of this happening is slim to none.

Duo (VB) had a stab at this.

They failed.

There is a regional business class airline in New Zealand operating with Piper PA31s. Their home base is Kapiti airport which is 20 minutes drive from me. They operate flights to WLG, NSN, Blenheim, Levin, Masterton, Picton

Business people just want to get there (or home) fast and reliably. With an extensive schedule. Therefore today's regional airlines are perfect for (and designed for) business passengers already.

Do biz pax care about luxury, yes. But are they willing to pay for it short hop, nah

Doesn't VLM do this?
