What's Next For Prestwick (PIK)?

Mon Apr 05, 2004 3:20 am

Just wondering if there has been any news of airlines starting any service to the USA. I know "Celtic Airways" was proposing flights from there to the States (L-1011's) a couple years ago but I'm assuming they no longer are. Do they even plan to start operating?

The CEO is serving a life sentence in jail, convicted of child abuse.

He turned out to be a bulls****ing fraud and pervert.

May he rot in hell.

An terminal overhaul, and a personality transplant for most of the staff.

I would love to see PIK have "jetways/jetbridges" installed, although walking up the stairs is nice, the winters make this a little cold and wet!

I doubt we'll see PIK having any jetbridges anytime in the next few years at least, the current terminal simply isn't big enough to accomodate a reasonable number - and a new terminal is a long way off as current traffic levels just can't justify it.

I don't expect we'll see too many new PAX routes in the next few years, maybe a few to holiday destinations in Spain/Canaries which are pretty poorly served by PIK at the moment after globespan moved house to GLA, but very few major business routes are left to be tapped IMHO.

On the freight side I heard rumours a few months ago that a route linking to one of the Japanese airports was being looked at by Atlas/Polar - but this has come to nothing as far as I know.
