    British CAA: Extend PIA rights at MAN

    Interesting analysis done by the British CAA. Here is the synopsis:

    UK interests affected by an extension of PIAs rights

    UK passengers, mainly from the North West and
    Yorkshire/Humberside, may benefit from more frequency,
    more capacity, lower fares and a more direct journey;

    UK airlines operating direct services at Manchester may
    lose because they lose traffic and the average market
    yield traffic falls;

    UK airlines operating domestic services from Manchester
    and Leeds into London and transatlantic services from
    London may lose traffic as passengers decide to travel
    on PIAs direct services;

    Manchester airport may gain from an increase in
    throughput but Londons airports may lose passengers;

    Businesses in the UK which supply PIA will gain, particularly
    if PIA adds new services;

    Tourism in the UK will increase if fares are lowered and
    inbound travel
