Ok, if you have any news or rumours about any regional airport in the UK (eg, not London airports) then post it here.
Ok, I'll start...
QI/SK are starting a daily NCL-CPH flight using CRJs.
easyJet starting flights to GVA,BUD and CIA from NCL, but dropping CPH due to costs at CPH. BFS goes to 3 Daily

FlyGlobespan are starting 4 weekly EDI-GVA and 5 weekly GLA-GVA
AA start MIA-MAN in November, replacing the BOS-MAN service

Blah blah blah...Anyone know more?


When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

And here we go from the Yorkshire & Humber region:

Leeds/Bradford
Jet2 : Commence daily flights to CDG from September.
Recommence GVA from Dec-Apr. Will be daily with 2 flights on a Sat.
Will add a Sat evening flight to AMS making a day return possible on Saturdays.

Bmi: Commence 4 x weekday flights to LCY with a leased AT4 from Nov 1.
Equipment change imminant on 4 x daily LHR service from F100 to A319.


Humberside
No changes I'm aware of at the mo on scheduled services (just the usual AMS and ABZ flights).

However, a new ski flight will run from Dec-Mar each Sunday to the Bulgarian city of Plovdiv. Flights by Balkan Holidays.

Doncaster/Sheffield/Finningley/Robin Hood/Arthur Scargill/Any Tom, Dick or Harry Int
Nothing until next March and then we will see Thomson arrive and base a 752 and Thomsonfly introduce scheduled services across Europe by basing 3(?) 735's.

As a side note, Jet2 are also introducing a daily BFS-BCN service in September and will increase its BFS-PRG during the same month from 4 x weekly to daily.

More from EDI:

easyJet were rumoured to be starting EDI-GVA but seem to have gone off the idea since Flyglobespan announced it.

Germanwings are continuing CGN-EDI for the winter season and are considering Stuttgart-EDI for next year.

bmibaby are starting 2x daily BHX-EDI from Jan.

Euromanx are ditching IOM-EDI before the end of the year.

EDI-AMS is going down to once daily for EZY over winter.

bmi Regional are rumoured to be launching EDI-MUC with ERJ135/145.

New tower is quickly heading skywards.

Extended taxiiways should be finished in October I think.

Six-level multi-storey car park will be opened on September 6, nearly two and a half months early.

Here's some CAA figures to finish off with:  Smile

95% loads for EDI-EWR-EDI.

76.5% loads for EDI-ARN-EDI.

43% loads for DME-EDI-DME. That route seems to be doing as well as can be expected now, all things taken into consideration i.e the lack of public awareness.  Big grin

Also, 85% loads for EDI-PRG-EDI for CSA.

82.8% loads for Germanwings and 46100 did EDI-AMS-EDI, that's more than the equivalent route at MAN! Only LHR and LGW carried more.

Done!  Big grin

Teesside, will see a based BY 738 next summer, as well as A319s on LHR route and J41s being introduced on MME-ABZ

The rumours of NCL-NYC by CO or AA persist, as well as BRS-NYC by the same airlines

MAN rumours and changes worth noting:

Malaysian retiming flights to 2000 departures from November

Air Berlin launch service with ops to Paderborn, Hamburg and Berlin Tegel

rumours for 2006 are possible AA service LAX-MAN depending on gates being available, Boston being considered for year-round due to excellent first year loads

Asiana in talks for freight and passenger services to Seoul (3x weekly)

All Nippon negotiations deferred, El Al returning in January 2006, Iran Air looking to extend their LHR service to MAN as Syrian do with their Damascus service.

MAN-LAX with AA - no chance. They are looking at nicely warmed up markets for 757 operations (BHX, EDI, GLA, STN). LAX loses money on every route to Europe for AA including LHR because of yields and sector lengths.

SAS is looking at HUY as well as more NCL.

BMI on MUC is a certainty.

ATA will do STN and Ireland as their first European destiantions if they sort out their problems.

Expect someone to do NCL-NWI.

If so, would anyone bet against it being Eastern?

SAS to HUY would be very interesting. Presumably this would be to CPH as there have been links with Denmark on-and-off over the years?

Another interesting new service to start soon is the HLX service from CVT.

Worthy news from Plymouth, about as regional as they get for a city of 300,000 people!;

The re-routing of A386 road is now well under way to allow for 90 meter safety area at west end of the runway to secure existing runway length. The local council has set out a plan prohibiting any more development to the east of the runway, with a view to extending it by 200-300m to a total length of 1500m thus enabling slightly larger and some jet aircraft to land.

If you want to make sense of that click the following link for an aerial pic of PLH http://www.multimap.com/map/photo.cgi?client=public&X=250362&Y=60816&width=700&height=410&gride=&gridn=&srec=0&coordsys=gb&db=&pc=&zm=0&scale=10000&down.x=286&down.y=4

Airline wise, as I mentioned on another thread, Air Southwest are looking to commence at least one new flight to the continent, it seems AMS or the reincarnation of the PLH-JER-CDG flight are favorites.

Cheers,

GLA:

PIA expected to announce the start of Karachi-GLA flights.

EK will go double daily at GLA according to rumours.

NWA are appaerently in discussions to begin possibly BOS-GLA

ATA rumoured to be starting possibly JFK-GLA

CSA will begin flights to GLA from PRG in October (13 per week next Summer)

Globespan will go daily to Prague next Summer

Globespan will have 6 aircraft based at GLA next year.

Zoom are doing charters to Orlando and Cancun for Canadian Affair next year.

Zoom will increase frequency on other flights from GLA.


All I can think of just now. Although GLA and MAN aren't really that regional, especially not MAN.

Can't see AA returning to BHX, they dropped the ORD-BHX-ORD service just after 9/11, then re-instated it and then dropped it again! if they want to get good loads and build a reliable reputation etc from BHX then they need to ride through the tough times just like CO did, now look.... we get double daily BHX-EWR! and yes both flight are doing well!! loads for June were, 17,075 up 84% on 2003 (138 pax each sector), there's lots of talk about Qatar, Gulf traveler and Eithad airways, I believe QR are just waiting to secure DOH-DEL rights then BHX will be announced!?? as for the second daily EK flight, loads have been good, June loads, 16,691 up 13% on 2003 (269 pax each sector) but still no plans for that extra flight, maybe QR,GF or EY has something to do with that! I think Eithad should give BHX ago over MAN, MAN already has double daily EK flights, & QR I think EY could make ago of BHX just like EK!

Why on earth would QR route their US flights via BHX or GLA?? if I'm not mistaken the reason PK moved their US bound flights over to MAN was because BHX had to put payload restrictions on the BHX-Pakistan flights (777flights only!), also when EK were considering operating US flights via Europe BHX was considered but again because of runway length nothing became of it! Yes GLA has a slightly longer runway than BHX but not by much! if they were to operate via Europe then they would operate via a city where they could make big bucks, and BHX,GLA don't offer big bucks! Anyway I would love to see QR come to BHX even if it was a twice weekly service!

That's a bit premature is it not? The route only started in April and loads hadn't been great up till last month.
Then again, with all the new aircraft they are getting, they are going to have to find somewhere to make use of them!  Big grin
Expect DUB to be announced first?
Hey, maybe they will follow CO and now CSA's lead and start services to both EDI and GLA instead of a (furthur) frequency upgrade?  Smile

I was speaking to my EK sales manager just after they announced the GLA flight, she was saying that it was almost going to be an EDI-DXB flight, not sure why something to do with management at GLA? So....Yes maybe EDI will get a service instead of GLA getting double daily! Anyway I can't see GLA going double daily before BHX! And DUB definitely should be in the line for a EK flight soon!

"BHX,GLA don't offer big bucks! "

This being the reason why so many airlines fly to both airports? They don't make 'big bucks' but as they feel sorry for the airports they give them some flights. :s

Why wouldn't they route via BHX or GLA? Surely they would be able to fill the a/c with people going from Doha-UK, Doha-US, UK-US, and vice versa.

Here's part of the e-mail:

"We will however be operating to the USA within the next 12 months and if our new order for long range aircraft is as delayed as others have been by Airbus then the USA routing will have to be via Europe. I personally have heard both Birmingham and Glasgow mentioned.

Suffice it to say that we are moving 'onward and upward' and nothing will surprise me."


SL, does EDI have any A330 stands? (not a dig, it's a genuine question)

GLAGAZ, EDI can handle DC10s as the max aircraft size just now, both A332 and DC10 hold similiar passenger numbers, but it's the huge wingspan of the A330 that means it effectively takes up 2 stands, but Air Transat A330s have been semi-regular visitors over the years so it's not impossible, as have EI A330s for rugby charters. But since then the stand designed for aircraft these size has been removed to give way for more departure lounge space and baggage reclaim facilities which are currently being built. Still possible, but as I said, wingspan would be a hinderence, but as EK visit in the afternoons which are generally quieter at most airports it is unlikely all stands will be needing used.

I'm not saying I didn't believe your message, afterall EK considered the same option! BHX Has always been know to only give low yields! I have traveled several times on EK business ex BHX not once has the J section been full or half full to think of it! And if I'm not mistaken the reason AA dropped BHX-ORD and BA dropped BHX-JFK/YYZ was all because of low loads up front! BHX Is great for leisure travelers. If BHX offered great loads up front then we would see airlines like US/AA/UA/NW/BD/SQ/MH/QR/GF etc etc all jumping in!! Oh well maybe GLA is better?! I don't know! I won't wait to see the QR US flight anytime soon! Lets get QR on the BHX-DOH first!
