This is excellent news for Humberside on the back of the new Edinburgh services. We're getting there, slowly but surely!

Looks like MAN will also see the J41 on its NWI run...and get a new INV route. Still nothing doing on the HUY-MAN service though.

I heard rumor's of GR and BE operating JER/GCI/BRS this summer, anyone know if its true??
A GCI/BRS route will do well as BA discontinued it in favor of BRS/JER/CDG as of 30March.

Aurigny had applied for the Bristol-Jersey license, were given it, but then decided not to operate it anyway! British European wouldnt open more bristol services it would be in direct competition with its own services from Exeter.

I should point out that the new Eastern Jersey routes are subject to route approval.

Where did you get news that the MAN run will get the J41, and that INV will be launched?

It is worth pointing out that in previous years, Humberside was served by KLM uk Fokker 50s and later, ATR-72s, and that NWI used to have 3 sched Air UK Fokker F27s on saturdays!

Therefore the J41s aren't ideal, but they're a start. The use of the ER3 would have been better.

In regards to the HUY-MAN service, it is still being evaluated and its inception would be more to do with the current owners than as an actual popular route, because, it would'nt be. Talking to the guys at Eastern, Humberside-Belfast is on the cards for next year.

If Aurigny started the BRS flight the would have been in a bit of trouble. With the STN, AMS, MAN and EMA flights they would'nt have airplanes enough, or just enoug. But then, what would happend if one or two aircrafts goes tech? Then you would have a big problem. But on the other side, I wouldn't mind dispatching another flight for aurignyin guernsey.

Aurigny are not starting Bristol flights although the Guernsey Transport Authority granted them a licence,Aurigny said they wanted to concentrate on the routes they have already.BE are operating JER/GCI/BRS flights I believe as I saw that the apllication for the route had been granted.
TimeForFlight-There is no information on the internet regarding Love Air operating Jersey-Guernsey-IOM flights though I read in the newspaper that Love Air will start twice a day flights from Mondays to Fridays using a Jetstream 31.The flights will start the day after Manx pull out of the route which I think is today?
The BOH flights will start soon as well though I don't have a date,they will operate at a weekend.

RE: Eastern Airways From MAN & Mme?

Wed Apr 03, 2002 8:00 pm

These route rumours are all good news, although I have slight doubts over the viability of a MAN-HUY route, since the M62 runs between these 2 cities. The MAN-INV sounds viable, though, on a J31.

What about MME-MAN - this has previously been operated by Eastern (when they were still trading as Air Kilroe), and also, the likes of MME-BHD?
Are there any rumours of new routes ex-MME, because the J31/J41 would be an ideal aircraft for some of these routes, especially as the MME-BHD route was previously operated by Gill Airways using ATR72 equipment (NCL-MME-BHD).

I don't think Eastern will go back to the MME-MAN route, as, like HUY, it isnt that far by road, and there are good direct rail services.

I can also see the market potential for MME-BHD flights, but, HUY-BHD will come first, possibly operating a NWI-HUY-BHD routing, so i hear.

Most of Gill's MME-BHD flights took about 15-20 pax.

So as you say the J31 would be ideal for the route.

But, firstly, Eastern have to source more a/c, and they cannot expand too quickly, this has been the downfall of many a regional airline. All in good time!

British European will NOT operate from Bristol to Jersey and Guernsey this summer.

Looking at their website, they have got 11 J31s, 1 J41 and the leased ERJ135.

How many of these are actually needed to operate their present schedule? If anything, they appear to have too many aircraft and not enough routes!

Wasn't MAN-MME by Air Kilroe more or less a corporate shuttle for a large corporation based there ?

You mean ICI - it was a 5 daily Be200 which progressed from scheduled charter to scheduled service but frequency dropped to 3 daily and then 2 daily using J31s.

It was also well known for transporting Bryan Robson when he was Middlesbrough's manager.

A previous incumbent of the MAN-MME route was Casair who operated Ce404s but didn't last too long on the run as they went into liquidation around 1989.
