INV - AMS With KLM?

Thu Sep 07, 2006 6:17 pm

it seems that INV lacks international connections . INV is one of the fastest growing places in the europe so could INV sustain a 3 x daily service to AMS ?

It comes up on mine when i roll over the code. I think if flybe based themselves there they could operate a twice daily route.

KLM used to operate to INV IIRC - the route was withdrawn as quickly as it was introduced though...

talking about starting big. That are at least 150 (3x F50) seats to fill each dayon a new route. once/twice daily (perhaps even 5/10x weekly) might be a good start, but I'm not too sure how the market is.

Absolutely no idea. I know it ceased in 1998 though. Service was once daily.

I meant that first it didn't have the automatic translation from code into name. Now it does.

Really? I thought it was pretty sleepy when I visited the town last year. I thought most of Scottish commerce and industry was either on the EDI-GLA axis or near ABZ.

Didn't Scot Airways operate the route at one point?

I think INV-AMS has potential. Once daily would probably be the best initial frequency since I imagine most traffic would be leisure or connecting passengers and not business passengers needing a day return facility

As mentioned, KLM UK did operate AMS-INV daily for a very brief period a few years ago, I believe it was with a F50. Was at about the same time they also operated into Sheffield (the first Sheffield airport, not DSA!).

No one wants to fly/sit in a F50 for almost 3 hours  Sad

Yes they did after KLM withdrew. However they also withdrew shortly after they started.....
