One at BHX, and one at BRS. The BRS aircraft for sure, is staying for the winter.

I believe they are 9H-AEF and 9H-AEN. 9H-AEN replaced 9H-AER which is currently operating from Malta.

It is just the BHX, MAN, and BRS aircraft. As stated the BRS aircraft shall be staying for the winter, presumably operating XLA's new winter schedule from BRS?

KM did operate from BRS last winter aswell! Did SSH, and Hurghada, and a few canaries too I think!

Last year the BRS A320 did flights for XLA including SSH, LCA, PMI and ALC but mostly the flights our 734 couldn't do.

Those flights didn't fall into the openskies agreement as they flew with an XLA flight number (if they used KM the flights would have to go via MLA), well thats what we were told  Smile

I think it stayed over winter, not sure though as I finished in November.

Flights within the EU can be operated by any EU member state airline - hence Air Malta's flights from the UK to Spain, Cyprus, Greece etc.

However, other countries such as Egypt, won't allow an airline from another country operate between itself and (e.g.) the UK

In these instances, the simple get around is for the aircraft to be chartered by another airline an use their flight number...

MAN does not have a based KM aircraft, We handle KM at MAN, and the only flights we do are MLA schdules.

The BRS aircraft operates for XLA on a Thursday.

KM do operate charter flights and do not go via MLA. They used to do PFO from MAN, but non so far this summer.

Most of them flew under the KM number, and still do. The only flight that the BRS aircraft flies under the XLA number is thursday's Sharm el Sheikh flight, as XLA384M/XLA385M

The Bristol aircraft also does 3 weekly W-flights to Exeter, from Corfu, Heraklion and Arrecife

Got it thanks, I just remembered asking why SSH was an XLA flight no.

Quoting Planesarecool (Reply 9):

Yes I rember last year they did BRS-JTR-CHQ-BRS about 10 minutes before our so before our flight did the same routing (every Tuesday) till we did started the Tuesday TFS.

Don't know anything about the programme for this year though (different airline & base).
