I'd love to see the Heron as the first departure!

If the companies involved, (declarants, freight agents and haulage companies) are ready and prepared, it shouldn't cause too many issues in theory!
Problem is from experience even when given years they haven't been prepared!

Maybe they'll have learnt 🤔😄

l am hoping that the change of leadership in the UK will usher in an era of way less bellicose jingoism and a great deal more pragmatic trading arrangements between trusted nations.

Good luck with that.

Basically you are asking to get back into the single market, and we'll only do that by accepting freedom of movement, ECJ etc.

So we are back to cherry picking - or having our cake and eating it.

Because they accept freedom of movement - do you think that is currently achievable in the UK?

Apologies for the thread drift - plenty of threads in Jet Blast if anybody wants to go running round and round this hamsterwheel.

Back on topic...
Doncaster's mayor says she has instructed the council to begin legal action against the owner of Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA).

Ros Jones said this was to prevent the removal of critical assets ahead of the airport's proposed closure. Owner Peel Group said on Tuesday it had received no "credible proposal" for the airport site. However, Ms Jones said there was a credible bid in place, with the necessary financial backing. Last month, Peel said operations would wind down at the airport from the end of October as it was not financially viable.

Ms Jones said: "Following the lack of national government support and the continuing unreasonable actions of Peel with a ridiculous timeframe and current unwillingness to suspend the closure notice, yesterday I instructed Doncaster Council to commence legal proceedings to prevent removal of critical assets and infrastructure essential for operation and future potential operators."

Peel Group previously said it had begun "winding down provision of aviation services and facilitating an orderly managed closure".

If you look at the Which website, it doesn't list DSA as first as it says its closed.

I believe mid-November is mooted.

There are still talks ongoing with a potential purchaser. I think.

Have Peel confirmed this? BBC seemed to suggest a source had tipped them off, which to me sounds like DMBC being mischievous.

More likely to be buying the land with a disused airport on it rather than buying an airport that has no traffic and has been making claimed losses.
