Here's hoping for a London service eventually. (Somewhat selfishly
as I may be moving to Indianapolis soon, and I'm a frequent traveller to London, so why not have a London flight?) I don't know how realistically soon a London flight would happen, if ever. Are IND still thinking about London, or is it likely years away yet?
Hypothetically speaking, what carrier(s) would be most likely to offer IND-London? Could it be a Delta flight, as they serve CDG currently? (It would be logical, as DL are the only US3 carrier doing this sort of P2P flying.) Or could IND successfully court BA or even Norwegian? Assume any carrier bit the bait, what size/type of aircraft would be best suited for the route? 767 or 787 perhaps; anything larger would be too large, I think (so no A330s or bigger, forget the 747, even though BA serve AUS with the 747).
It's at least a few years away, and for the most part I would think BA or DY. BA would likely use the 787-8, however, Norwegian could use the A321LR which could make the flight more feasible.
The airport is not rushing into anymore European service though, as they seem content with CDG for now.
We could possibly hear more about new nonstop flights shortly, Mario Rodriguez is the top story on Insideindiana business this weekend...
Interesting. I am curious what will be spoken about by Mario. It's been awhile since he's been on the show.
Btw I watched the inside indiana business interview, and Mario didn't get into hardly any detail about anything
-They talked about how it was the first terminal after 9/11
- One of best connected midsized airports according to MIT study
-Listening to business needs for nonstops
- Businesses wanted more service to California and west coast, and as a result the west coast is saturated
-Briefly talked about looking into service to Mexico, Canada, and the Caribbean, and mentioned that the airport isn't solely focused on business passengers rather they are looking at leisure travelers as well for new flights
- https://www.wthr.com/article/inside-ind ... rs-service
- Mexico City and Asia mentioned again
- More local
- Sense of place
Didn't even mention $20 million from state, Grant Money, Garage Expansion, Growth numbers, e.t.c
Although the 10 year anniversary on November 11 is coming up, so maybe the airport plans to do something special for that
