Default Airgibraltar

Someone picked up on another forum the fact that a new airline was going to operate from Gib starting in April next year flying to Manchester, Birmingham, Ireland and for me Bristol. Bookings hopefully starting in October. Thank you Yvonne for this gem.

Yep, all fine if you don't mind landing on one of the shortest runways in the world

This will create havoc with the traffic as they close the roads when a plane takes off/lands, it is bad enough with one or two flights per day, any more will be a nightmare.

Is there really that great of demand for flights from Gib to the rest of the UK? I would have thought that most planes arrive/depart 3/4 empty now.

Lets wait and see. Don't think they'll be as cheap as Ryaniar or Easyjet though as they are giving allocated setas and food on the plane (added costs) as well as leasing their planes and staff so larger profit margins required. Unless they manage to take a lot of freight, I can't see them being competitive. The same thing happened with the comany that flew out of Manston in Kent and they only lasted a year !!!

I heard that BA (GB Franchise) are pulling out of the Heathrow-Gibraltar route this Autumn. So that´s one less flight to cause havoc at the airport.

They are just changing to 2 flights a day from Gatwick to Gibraltar instead of one from Heathrow and 1 from Gatwick. So same numbers of flights each day. They are obviously using their Heathrow slot for another route.

Do you think that means that the UK are handing back Gib to the Spanish in the near future? I wonder!

No way - that is almost impossible.

This is a sensible agreement which benefits both the Gibbos and the Spanish.

Sovereignty is another issue which will not get resolved for another 100 years or so.
