A shame that this service is stopping, I've used them for several weeks, great friendly service and within 1/2 hour of leaving home, I'm parked up, checked in and thru security. Granted the plane wasn't the newest and I won't fancy using in bad weather as a bit bumpy, but the speed of service was excellent. Unforeunately I had to stop using them as I needed to travel up on Tuesday and come back Wednesday's, so now I'm travelling down to Luton (joy) using EasyJet.
There is a note on the Minoan website
"After 5 months of faultless services, 99.75% punctuality, nearly 500 flights, more than 6.000 carried passengers and well over one million pounds that were invested in the operation, Minoan regrets to announce the termination of its schedule services from Oxford to Edinburgh and Dublin, due to our disagreement with Oxford Airport management on specific terms of cooperation deemed imperative for the viability of our flights.
Following the fall out of our discussions, the airport had been given advance notice of our intentions thus allowing adequate time to explore all avenues to replace the carrier with another operator."
