British Airways (London) is planning its last day of Boeing 757 revenue operations on October 30 with Boeing 757-236 G-CPET (msn 29115) painted in the 1973 delivery livery. The Ian Allan charter flight for November 6 has been cancelled. Here is the tentative schedule for October 30:
Flybe (Exeter) announced that it has reached agreement with Finnair (Helsinki) to provide regional services in Scandinavian and Baltic Sea Areas.
This new co-operation will begin on October 31, 2010 with three wet leased Bombardier DHC-8-402 (Q400) aircraft. Flybe will commence services to key Scandinavian and Baltic markets from Helsinki Airport that will include Tampere, Turku and Tallinn. This agreement is expected to grow beyond the three aircraft in the summer of 2011.
Flybe and Finnair have also agreed to begin discussions on a potential wider co-operation agreement, which could see Flybe providing a range of services across the Nordic and Baltic Sea markets.
