I think they are already flying to Belfast International. From the advertisement in the paper, I think they are using a Brasilia.

Hm, nothing about BLK - BFS flights on both airport's websites and also nothing in the CRS - sure about the Brasilia flights ?

Yup, that's what I have heard. Comed in disguise with the some of the familiar faces being involved.

I may be wrong about the Brasilia but I am pretty sure that is them

Yup, that's them indeed. The confusion arose because you mentioned a Brasilia. According to the CRS, they are operating a Bandeirante (aircraft code: "EMB" in contrast to "EM2" for the Brasilia) twice daily on BFS-IOM-BLK.

Not sure if the ICAO-code BNW has been offically allocated to them already. In the CRS, they show as "Eastwind Capital W9" which suggests that there is some kind of designator chaos.

They used to be 5W, which is a shared code between smaller carriers that would never meet... 5W was executive express.
