@Kenny_Jacobs @DubGot1 Hi, Got is a great place and we will grow in Sweden. So far, there isn’t enough consistent demand to operate a route from Dublin.

@neelammathews #RoutesSilkRoad #China overtaken US outbdmarket spend over $100million #avgeek.

@Niamh_OMahony Would like to support @CorkAirport but DIFFERENCE in flights between departing Dublin / Cork for 5 days in August is €1200. (€300 v €1500).

@skydavidblevins Passenger figures up 8% at @BelfastAirport. They’re expecting 152,000 passengers this week – 21,000 on Saturday 11th July alone! #travel.

@SpaethFlies Experts #routessilkroad in Tbilisi say @TRANSAERO might well take their #A380 and B747-8s ordered, maybe deferred for a year or two.
