Not sure there is sufficient market demand for all these routes, but I guess we have to wait and see what happens

Out of interest, how to pax get from the station to the terminal? As that's quite a walk. Is there a regular bus?

Bus services were withdrawn some time ago, now the only option is to walk... to the single train a week.

I can't see the demand for any of these routes except perhaps DUB (if they have interline with EI) and perhaps IOM. It seems like a waste of an LCY slot. Maybe they're squatting on it.

BHD and IOM at least also have the benefit of no flights from the nearby NCL so they may get some traffic from up in that direction. (although Easyjet flies to BFS)

Whilst its great to see MME getting some love, I'm sceptical about the viability of these routes... with the leakage to LBA, MAN, NCL, these routes are unlikely to stay for long without some support from government.

Good bit of PR for MME but realistically, aside from maybe DUB (and that’s being optimistic), I can’t see these lasting long.

I presume these will be flown by the Jetstream?
