But what kind of outcome would be positive? The PAX operators have moved to pastures new, cargo similarly. Clearly they had no choice, but even if hypothetically a new buyer were found that took...

Obviously I don't know what Magma / Chapman Freeborne are bringing in from Kenya, but the supermarket shelves would suggest stuff like green beans which don't have the same shelf life as say citrus...

I can't imagine that flying UK destined for the UK into an EU airport, and one three hours by road from the channel crossing is ideal. With perishables time is everything, and not just from a...

[QUOTE=EGNXROB;11318609]
That's interesting, that must be the first flight then. Assume they must have gone elsewhere while putting the EMA operation in place. EMA is the best alternative to DSA...

Can anyone enlighten me as to where the perishables freight operation has moved to? Doesn't appear to be EMA or BHX.

It looks very much as though this thread is going to take the same path as the Manston thread did when the plug was pulled there with eternal optimists continuing to clutch at straws. A shame, but...

Got it!

So DSA has so far lost 50% or thereabouts of its regular cargo business.

If that is so, and MAGMA have already left DSA, what is TF-AMU doing winging its way from NBO to DSA just now, and expected at DSA around 16:36 today? Are Astral flights not for MAGMA?

I believe that #inOban has it about spot on. There way too many "airports" in England, and consolidating on the "wrong one" could be viewed as yet another infrastructure faux pas. Unfortunately...

I agree, though perhaps "glass half full" realistic.

As for the transfer of commercial flights, I suspect that EMA may put in a competitive bid for the Eastern European Wizz operation. They could...

Interesting question. Does EMA have the capacity to take the business, and do they have the capability to handle perishable?

If not, perhaps STN?

In business terms this kind of 'consultation' is generally a box ticking exercise, the decision having already been made, sadly.

Many of us have been through them before.

That's a bit wide of the mark. I take it you don't live on the EMA flight path and haven't seen the almost relentless development of cargo facilities there.

If EMA were relying on the SLF...
