WW - GLA/PIK

Fri Jan 30, 2004 5:58 pm

Why did BMIBaby move its Cardiff flights from Glasgow to Prestwick but left the East Midlands flights at Glasgow? Surely, it makes more sense to be flying to just the one airport (for crewing reasons if nothing else)?

I know that BMIBaby said that the landing charges were too high at Glasgow to make the Cardiff route sustainable but surely they would also make more money if they moved the East Midlands flights as well?

They have no competition between Cardiff and Glasgow, but easyJet is also operating between East Midlands and Glasgow and thus it would be an advantage for easyJet if bmibaby moved their services to PIK.
