The three routes currently under Public Service Obligations (PSOs), were originally flagged using voluntary early warning system. These comprise the Londonderry to London Stansted airport, operated by BMI Regional from May 2017, Dundee to London Stansted airport, operated by Logan Air from June 2014, and Newquay to London Gatwick airport, operated by Flybe from October 2014. No other route has been flagged under the voluntary early warning system.
