I think it is such a pity that the residents( who knew there was an airport when the brought the houses) made it impossible for CVT to be a viable airport against the bigger BHX. I personally do not like BHX as it is a bunfight and was looking forward to more flights from the convenient and easy CVT.
Sad for all there who tried to make it a satisfactory experience for the passengers and also for the staff who will lose thier jobs in an uncertain time.
I am sure the reason for TUIFly coming out was entirely due to the lack of a satisfactory terminal building.No competiton from a local airport means BHX will jack up the costs. They are already the only airport I know that charges for setdown.

Quoting Kimberlyrj (Reply 7): I was also surprised to hear that in the summer 2009 Thomson Airways are looking to base yet another aircraft at Bournemouth Airport (who Wizz also pulled out of last month).
Quoting Humberside (Reply 9): That would be a surprise. Is there enought 'charter type' work for 2 TOM aircraft at BOH now FR have scheduled covered?
Indeed I too would be surprised, especially considering they pulled one aircraft this summer making it a one-aircraft-only base.
