I presume the DeHavilland Q400 will be used on this run when it starts in December??

I'm pleased to see more Irish airports being served, I'm sick of Dublin - my kidneys can't take the pace like they used to!!!!

Ohh, Galway is even worse! Although your kidneys may groan, your wallet and eyes will sing! Fantastic place and lovely county.

Will the Q400 struggle at GWY, as the ATR often does from the short runway on a hot day

Does the 146 require less runway than the Q400? (I'm showing my ignorance here!!)

And more new routes to follow from southampton with flybe in the comming weeks. The rate at which southampton airport is expanding is rediculous. Check-in queues are becoming a nightmere , im starting to think its better flying from heathrow. They need a bigger terminal if they are to keep up with demand.

It is actually when take-off are performed on runway 08 (easterly winds). The runway slopes off quite a bit at the beginning of 08. Meaning the aircraft has to climb a the slope when starting its take-off roll.

If you want to try this route go early, hard to see how it will last.

I can see this route having the same sort of fate as cherbourg. It's a shame that flybe doesnt choose to operate some bigger european cities, Barcelona comes to mind , i think they could make that route work.

Have they dropped Cherbourg again? I know they restarted the route this summer

With the likes of HAJ and DUS starting soon, plus AMS and CDG starting recently, I think BE are starting to look at the city destinations instead of aiming to serve every regional airport in France Big grin

BCN, PRG and NCE would all do well from SOU. They are a loco's staple routes.

yes i think the last flight is in the next couple of weeks , you can tell the route is making very little money as tomorrows flight is still being sold at £9.85 unlike their more profitable routes where booking a day in advance you would be looking at probably £100 if not more.

They used to operate PRG but that route was dropped i would like to see them try BCN and NCE i would imagine theese routes would do well

Barcelona (Girona) is served by FR out of BOH, so doubtful they would try to compete directly against that. Although, FR also serve Glasgow and Dublin from BOH as do Flybe ex SOU so who knows!

I hear Easyjet are planning to start a service from BOH-NCE next spring. They serve GVA in the winter months for the Skiing lot so it would be nice to see them expand a little bit more at BOH.
