Re: Future of Exeter Airport

A physical issue with longer services from EXT (and BRS for that matter) is the runway length. A B737-8 MAX or an A321-200LR is not going to have the range to do TATL/ME routes with a meaningful payload - TOM have operated to SSH with the 738, and that was marginal, even with the winds behind them.

The Air Transat services operated via other UK airports for the same reason (BHX, IIRC), but were delinked due to substandard profitability.

I hope this Ryanair announcement will lead to an apology from everyone who was being disrespectful to those of us who recognized that EXT will be one of the world's largest airports by 2030.
