    City Airport may have higher fees, but this could be recouped from higher fares from business travellers. City Airport also has a surprisingly strong leisure market.

    And where did I say "everyone" should fly to City Airport? All I said was that flights to City would be more attractive than flights to Southend. It was a generalisation.

    Announced today that flights will now not operate before the spring. Additional flight traffic controllers have been appointed but training is proving difficult and there are 'regulatory issues', possibly including to do with the resurfaced runway but the spokesman was vague about the actual reasons.

    I wonder how they are getting on with fitting out the terminal?

    I wonder if the recently reported boardroom battles within Stobart Group are in any way connected to the constant postponement of these flights

    Flights to Dublin, Southend and Belfast are available for booking. Great to see a smaller airport opening up, hope it's a success although looking at a map it's a bit out of the way r/e public transport - especially as it's aiming at tourists heading to the north Lakes.

    As I understand it these won’t be starting until next year now.

    Correct.

    But nobody is prepared to suggest when next year.

    There were commercial flights about 7 years ago, although they went bust shortly after the first flight! A family member was on that first one and had to get a Pendolino back.

    I wonder if the Dublin flights will start with the others. If Brexit goes ahead, the current agreement is that only flights that already operate between the UK and test if the EU will continue.

    My mistake, it's still only a proposal by the EU.
