My thoughts and ideas..........
Barrow: Industry is dead in the error and not mutch people live nearby but i think Flykeen could do something with their Bandeirante here, perhaps an IOM
Bembridge: Mega short runway but the Rockhopper or Aurigny Trislanders might interest locals in flying to the Channel Islands.
Biggin Hill: Lift the scheduled flight ban and get Eastern Airways Jetstreams in here to keep with the GA
theme. Carlisle was served once could happen again. Poor transport links but within the London catchment area.
Blackbushe: Within the London catchment but with a short runway. Only thing i could think of is perhaps Jersey summer IT
flights with the SD
Brough: Runway way to short and has obstructions at end, not practical for anything bigger than a cessna and too close to Humberside Intl.
Carlisle: Runway is a good 6,000ft, but is narrow and has severly displaced thresholds, could support Eastern Airways Jetstream/ Scot Airways DO
-328 flights to London, and summer IT
flights to Channel Islands with the Aurigny SF
Coventry: To Coventry city citizens, Coventry Airport is now Birmingham airport, but i think a low cost carrier could operate on a limited frequency from here to the likes of Paris/Brussels (think Ryanair). The runway is a bit tight, but summer IT
flights to the med could happen to relieve BHX
a bit. Big catchment area.
Dundee: A city of 200,000 with only 1 link to LCY
with Scot Airways. Bring back the Eastern flights to MAN
, and reduce the fares. Flybe could base a DH2 here for flights to INV
Gloucestershire: Currenty i think an Aurigny SD360 does summer only Jersey flights. Too close to BRS
and runway too short so little ideas.
Haverfordwest: I'm sure if they tried hard enough Air Wales could do something here, like offer an alternative to Swansea in some cases.
Ipswich: A real waste, now the residents have no choice but to drive an hour to Stansted to catch Ryanair. If they'd only but down tarmac runways and somebody had started something to Holland.
Manston: This one is tricky, too far from London, too poor road links but i'm sure the local population could support a few more IT
Northolt: What was there before Heathrow? Northolt is the answer. London is on its doorstep, and an evil low cost could start a limited service here to the likes of Paris to annoy the Heathrow carriers down the road.
Pembrey: silly dinky runway, and too close to Swansea, Do Air Wales still have the Do-228, i think not, so nothing can come of it.
Sheffield: Flybe should also base a DH2 here for LCY
, Channel Islands and BHD
Shoreham: Does somebody still operate Trislanders here to Normandy? if not they should do.
Southend: Too close to STN
, too close to LCY
, but the Channel Islands flights remain. But can't think of any ideas for this 1.
