Coventry airport could soon be the gateway for flights to a further five countries, according to airport bosses. The news comes hot on the heels of this week's announcement that Wizz Air will be flying to Poland from the airport from next spring.
Chris Orphanou, a director at the airport, revealed that he is lining up more airlines to put on services into Ireland and continental Europe. He said: 'We are trying to marry our potential with passenger airlines and move into areas like western Ireland, Germany, Bulgaria, Romania and Italy. We expect to be making more announcements very, very soon.'
The expansion will depend on planning approval being given for a controversial new passenger terminal, which was subject to a public inquiry. Orphanou said he was 'more than confident' they would get the go-ahead when the inquiry inspector reports early next year.
Sounds to me like Aer Arann could be interested in Galway and a German LoCo are also interested. As for Romania, maybe Wizz Air or even Blue Air?
