Messing around on Flight Aware and noticed a flight betweek Gatwick and GNB. Is this a charter? For whom? What equipment would they use, only a 5,000 foot runway at 8,000 feet elevation?

Perhaps. Looked at the website for the airport and their only fuel service is self serve. I think training makes the most sense. EasyJet would be surprised to find out about these flights I am sure.

Appears to be a strange little Flightaware error stemming from the confusion with IATA codes. GNB is Grenoble, France, which EasyJet serves.

I can't seem to find an IATA code listed for KGNB.



'Cause you're on ATA again, and on ATA, you're on vacation!

Yes.

Quoting capitalflyer (Thread starter):
For whom?

For Mark Warner Holidays operated by BA. It operates every Sunday. Last Sunday (3 February) the flight (BA9218C) was the eighth of this winter Ski Charter Series.

Quoting capitalflyer (Thread starter):
What equipment would they use,

It is operated by a 734. Last Sunday the aircraft used was G-DOCG.

BA also operate a Ski Charter on Sundays for Mark Warner Holidays from LHR to GNB. BA use a 320 for this flight. It was G-MIDY last Sunday.

There is a second 734 Ski Charter operated every Saturday by BA for Mark Warner out of LGW. BA9216C operates to FDH. Again a 734 is used. Last Sunday the aircraft was G-DOCE.

...and GNB appears to be the FAA identifier for Granby, CO as well.

ICAO:
Granby, CO = KGNB
Grenoble, FR = LFLS

IATA:
Grenoble, FR = GNB

No confusion or error (unless you drop the "K" from the US identifiers and, wrongly, assume that this equals the IATA code which it often does, but not always - another Flightaware error .......)

Very nice. I was debating the legitimacy of an Easyjet 320 going to Grandby and also was debating a 2 hour drive up to see it. Glad the case is closed.

Too funny!

AFAIK, and if anyone knows anything more recent please let me know, the last time Granby-Grand County Airport had airline service was in the late 1970s (1977?) with Rocky Mountain Airways, Twin Otters, service to Denver, occasionally as a stop on the way to Steamboat. Faster than the train and the car over the pass to Winter Park, but not much. Did provide a nice gateway to the western entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park in the summer, for those from way out of state.
