“Bookings on LTE flights from Norwich had been doing well and we had high hopes for the success of their services.

“This situation is more a reflection of the current economic situation and wider problems faced by some airlines, rather than LTE's performance at Norwich.

“At the moment, LTE tells us that this suspension is only temporary, and some parts of the airline are still operating. LTE is not in liquidation or bankruptcy.

“It is too early to say if these flights will be reinstated.”
