I was looking at some timetables of low cost airlines and none seem to fly to Coventry.Its reasonably close to Birmingham although East Midlands is too and this will affect it.But how long is the runway and what are the terminal facilties like?

I work at CVT for Atlantic Airlines and I can tell you all CVT has a runway length of 1825 Metres. It's long enough for B.733, or at a big big push (and risk) B.752!!
We have had a truck load of different a/c in over the years.
Biggest was a Schreiner A.300F, and also a B.707F many years ago, but more often now it's BAe748's, F27's, L188 Electra's, ATR42's all doing cargo work (mainly at night) and also we've had B.732's of EAL, B.733's of some french airline I can't remember the name of right now (lol) and various other visitors.
Unusual stuff over the past has seen Luftwaffe CRJ's turning up, AN-12's, AN-24's, and when BHX was closed due to the fatal crash recently, we handled the BEA 146's and D-8's, and Aer Lingus 146's that diverted.
We also have general aviation turning up all the time, biz-jets mainly, N123TL (G3), N1874M (G4) being regulars.

Ryananir used to fly from here regularly to Dublin...they stopped the route a while ago though...Cov airport used to have a fair few visitors over the years...Orion 737's every sunday along with BD 733's!
