Something that made me laugh on one of my trips from PIK. While waiting for our flight, a look at the departures board showed a bunch of flights going to various destinations ... London Stansted, Dublin, Riga, Palma.... and one with destination of "France". It was going to Carcassonne but the airport simply had it up as "France"

Strange!
They don't fly to CCF anymore. Perhaps it was their only French destination...
Did you take a picture @ the board?

PIK airport is owned by the government.
Prestwick Airport has passed into public ownership after being bought by the Scottish government for £1.

The facility, which was put up for sale last year by New Zealand firm Infratil, has incurred annual losses of £2m.

It is understood a deal was concluded late on Friday. It is expected the airport will continue to operate as normal and there will be no job losses.

I did take a pic and here it is. This was back in March 2011 so they had different destinations from PIK back then. Mostly bucket and spade places from PIK now.

Ah... so how do I attach a photo ? Need to be later as I must go now but watch this space.

Ah, I see it.  I didn't see the insert image function as the icon wasn't so obvious at a glance.  Anyway ... here's the pic of the screen.  The large delay on the Faro flight was not Ryanair's fault by the way.

Thank's a lot!
So many routes have disappeared since 2011 (not so long ago)
ex:
- PIK to RIX (Rigga)
- PIK to WRO (Wroclaw)
- PIK to CCF (Carcassone)
- PIK to LDY (Derry)
- PIK to GRO (Girona, ok switched to BCN)

+ probably many more...
