I found on Pprune a post that speaks about three aircraft to be based in Bournemouth with following destinations :

Bournemouth base with 3 B737-800's


Nimes NEW!
Biarittz NEW!
Milan NEW!
Rome NEW!
Murcia NEW!
Stockholm NEW!
Oslo NEW!
Glasgow Prestwick
Dublin
Barcelona Girona
Bergerac NEW!

any confirmation of that ?

Interesting if true. Remember Buzz announced plans to open a base at Bournemouth, just prior to the Ryanair takeover. Ryanair scrapped the idea once they took control and just kept a couple of routes.

Maybe they've decided the time is right now.....

Indeed. But that was sometime ago.

I would not be surprised if BOH did indeed become a base. I imagine that its catchment area must be relatively large, what with Southampton, Portsmouth, Bournemouth itself, Salisbury, etc., all being relatively close.

3 738 machines seem too much to operate those proposed routes, so I wonder whether additional routes would operate.

Nimes NEW! - probably not daily
Biarittz NEW! - probably not daily
Milan NEW! - should be daily
Rome NEW! - should be daily
Murcia NEW! - possibly daily, but perhaps not
Stockholm NEW! - should be daily
Oslo NEW! - probably daily
Glasgow Prestwick
Dublin
Barcelona Girona
Bergerac NEW! - probably not daily

Are there any other major LCC's based at BOH? Thomsonfly is in my mind for some reason!

capacity wise the 732s would be better suited to BOH routes than the 738s which carry another 60 pax!

Bet FR will soon wish they had took some 73-7s or bought some old 735s to replace the 732s on thinner routes.

Thomson does fly from BOH and has done for a couple of months now but I don't know how well they're doing load wise. As said above the catchment area for BOH should be pretty good with three large cities/towns in the area and anywhere further west of BOH I'm sure would rather travel there than LGW which is quite a trek!

I know I'd fly from BOH more often if the destinations were there. Come on Ryanair, sort it out!

No offence, but I think MOL - who's an extremely intelligent accountant and graduated from Ireland's best university - knows exactly what he is doing, not least because he has a good share in the firm (so a bad decision would earn him less money - so he has a personal involvement) but also because he's rated in the top 25 businesspeople in the world. Evidence alone - namely that FR is extremely profitable, something which is increasing annually - confirms all this.

I might be completely wrong, but doesnt the -700 need just one less cabin crew than the -800? However that extra crew member can generate additional revenue (somebody said this elsewhere recently) and thus eliminates a large portion of the extra cost involved, while at the same time allowing X number more seats at peak times?.

On a different note, FR were, a few years ago, apparently (according to my local news station) going to start a base at NQY. That does, of course, seem far less likely to happen. I would expect BOH to become a base, but probably with 2 738 machines UNLESS the currently served destinations, namely DUB, PIK and GRO, will be operated by BOH-based aircraft, in which case 3 machines seem likely.

If BOH does become a base, then FR will have 5 UK bases: STN, LTN, BOH, LPL and PIK.

I wonder whether SNN would be served from BOH. Seems like a likely destination, in the future if not right away. I would certainly also expect additional Spanish destinations, like SVQ and GRX, and possibly SDR and SCQ, in the future, if BOH does indeed become a base.

I don't see what MOL's manners (or lack of) has to do with the success of Ryanair? True - few of us like him, but he has to be admired for the enormous changes he and a few other airline bosses have brought to the UK (and European) air travel industry.

Taken from your extreme knowledge of him, I presume? I will bet you £100 that he is quite the opposite in his personal life. Business demands a hard-hitter with the killer instinct. This is how he has achieved over £500 million wealth and how he (with others) has transformed the European aviation scene. While manners are important (especially in everyday life), they per se will not enable you to succeed. The same goes for being a gentleman.

LOL. In a personal context, yes, but ability comes before being a gentleman when in comes to business. You could have the nicest gentleman, but if he is a useless leader he won't get the job. What you need, then, is a combination of the two.

Anyway, let's get back to discussing BOH.

If FR goes ahead with these proposed routes are we going to see a cut back in charter/IT services from BOH?

To do that I'd have to be either gay or bisexual, of which I am neither, much to your sadness (I can tell that you fancy me rotten, mainly for my views on a certain Irish airline.  Wink  Silly LOL).

Yeah, in a few hours Jimmi should have cycled back from school and be ready to reply Wink If these new routes go ahead it should be great news for BOU, but also the South West in General. I know NQY has a couple of FR flights a day, the new BMI Baby ones starting soon, and EXT has FlyBe but most people down here fly from BRS, if there was the option of flying from BOU (even cheaper) I am sure this would be a very attractive prospect considering how deprived most of the SW is! From say, Plymouth to Bristol it is 110 miles, to Bournemouth it is 131 miles, not much of an issue here either.

Just my £0.02,

Good point, Mr! I forgot about the SW (funny, as I'm a SWer!). From EXT to BOH, it'll be about 87 miles. From EXT to BRS, it'd be about 86 miles. From Truro to BRS, it'd be about 170 miles, where to BOH it'd be about 173 miles. From Barnstaple (my hometown!) to BOH, it'd be about 116 miles, or about 98 miles to BRS - but hey, only a small distance extra. From BRS to BOH, it'd be about 80 miles.

Yes but it'd take a darn sight longer to get to BOH than to BRS as the M5 up to BRS is much quicker than the roads to BOH from Exeter.

Ah but the M5 is not the nicest of roads to drive, and you still have a fair bit on the old country roads from Sedgemoor to Lulsgate. I flew from BOU last summer and made it there in just under three hours from Plymouth, I haven't driven from Plymouth to Bristol Airport for about 10 years, but when I missed the last flight from BRS-PLH a few weeks ago my mother (grudgingly) made a round trip in just under 6 hours - but that was late at night with no traffic about.

My dad always criticises that part of the trip. That section needs improvement.

People from the SW will make the effort to reach BOH if or when BOH becomes a base, if they get a good airfare.
