Ronaldsway Airport

Having travelled through Ronaldsway recently I think the delays are due to just one scanner in operation and people not moving down the table once they have filled up the crates with their belongings.   It took about 30 mins to get to the inner sanctum then about 5 to be scanned, frisked and dressed again.

lcd and WTF: That is correct. And the airport was never going to have to shut, it's all bollocks to get more money. They should be asking for a new capital project later this year too OR ELSE THE AIRPORT WILL SHUT, which of course is ludicrous.

Indeed. The airport was going shut without the new radar. Shut without the new baggage handling carousel. Shut without the RESA. It must be a constant battle for Ms Reynolds to beat back the suits with clipboards on an almost daily basis as they seek to close the facility. She should surely be decorated for these efforts?

The radar situation is intriguing, for a long time no one would tell the real story, indeed ATC staff were scared to even discuss the matter !

I thought they said recently it was operational, who knows, but one fact is the old one is still here and still working, if the new one is all it should be, why do we still need the old one ?

For when the new one inevitable doesn't work.
