Bulletin to quiz Scottish minister for infrastructure over lack of winter flights » Balearics » News » Majorca Daily Bulletin

Quote:
After having had no direct flights to Majorca or the Balearics as a whole since October, Scots are beginning to enjoy direct access to the island again, but the issue of the lack of winter flights is one that the Scots are not prepared to let drop.


The Bulletin, on behalf of its readers, has been pushing and campaigning for more direct winter flights from the UK as a whole for the past three years and it would appear that Jet2 has this year taken note to the winter demand and already begun operating demand flights to Palma from locations in northern England as well as Scotland.

We'd been looking for a Saturday flight from Manchester for April. Could only find one at an unacceptable "middle of the night" time. Widened the search to Liverpool and Leeds/Bradford with a similar lack of success.

In the event, we've booked a Friday flight - still early but not ludicrously so - and will have an extra night in a hotel.

Not sure if this has been posted elsewhere, but they are also flying 3 times a week from Manchester (on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday):

Welcome to Ryanair!

Unhappy Newcastle airport

Still no flights from Newcastle until end of march, Edinburgh 100 miles, Manchester 120 miles, so long trip before you get on a plane. We live in Carlisle Cumbria and feel isolated from Spanish resorts in winter, only flights Canaries for some warmth.

That's great for you in the south!!

Easyjet go from Liverpool That's somewhere in the north west int it?

(PS I needed to go over twice in the winter - out on a Thursday and back on a Monday for one and Friday to Tuesday for the other. From South Yorkshire. One involved a trip to Gatwick setting off from home at 3 am, the other was from Stanstead setting off at 4 am. Am I pleased they are going from Manchester in the winter?)

Why not Leeds ?

If the UK were like Spain, Yorkshire would have it´s own local government and parliament, and at least one airport, subsidized by the EU.

We were on the last flight out from Leeds to Palma this winter - November 4th I think - Jet 2. There were 17 of us on board We had to fly back to Manchester and get the train back to Leeds which was not too bad apart from the train line being flooded.

We are back out on the first Jet 2 flight of the season on Monday 29th Feb. So that's virtually 4 months without flights from God's own county.

At the last Olympics, Yorkshire would have finished 11th in the medal table, above Australia, Japan and South Africa!

Liverpool...that's south of Manchester!! so it must be in the middle and you're from Sheffield!! Went to Uni in Sheffield....That's in the "Middle" as well!!

Stop trying to be Northern...You don't have to accept what Southerners say!! HaHa
