Why is it getting the V&A then? emoji854.png

 

Got to do something to try and get people to go there. Honestly I don't mind Dundee, seems an okay place but it's clear that's why they've pulled the flight route rather than some excuse about radar.

In a few years time, Dundee will be the place to be.

Flybe will be starting flights from Edinburgh and Aberdeen to/from Heathrow from 26th March 2017.

Fares will start at around £40 each way. A lot cheaper than rip-off BA!

You can fly with BA from Inverness for £40 each way, much the same as Flybe to Manchester or Birmingham. To get that price with Flybe you'll have to book well in advance and pick the right day, same with BA. I see BA flights in peak season (July) from Glasgow to Heathrow are mostly £40.

They were such higher last July, over £150 each way and much higher on peak flights.

I have got some cheap flights with Flybe and Easyjet (into Gatwick) when booking only two or three weeks in advance.

You can get cheap deals late on if the plane's half empty, but don't think Flybe will be like Easyjet or Ryanair, they're not. If they're competing on a route with BA it's good news though, both will drop their fares unless they come to a sneaky agreement.

Assuming we can use this to roll on into 2018...

United are starting a direct Edinburgh-Washington (Dulles) from May next year.

Not international but there's been talk of a new airline that's being set-up called Thistle Airways bringing back the Inverness to Edinburgh and Glasgow flights.  Would be pretty pointless IMO unless it was pennies for a ticket.

Flew from Inverness to Kirkwall in 40 minutes, back in 30, over last weekend. It was fucking extortionate though. The time and probably cost to Edinburgh or Glasgow would be similar. I wouldn't go for it but I'm sure enough tourists and businessmen would to keep it going in smallish planes.

A mere 26 miles from DC is a considerable improvement on Norwegian's EDI to "New York" route.

Possibly LoganAir? 

I think they might bring back the Dundee - Amsterdam flight as it was fairly popular. They've also dropped the price of flights from Dundee to Stanstead down to £49 one way.

You'd have thought Logan would already be doing it if they thought there was any money in it. Doesn't look like Thistle Air have got off the ground yet (no pun intended).

Think it was bus and tube when I went. Pretty smooth.

Ryanair are launching a twice-weekly Aberdeen-Malta from April next year.

Return flights to Malta around my birthday next year for £64.00......God bless Ryanair.
