Good news. I don't think MAN has had a dierct link to Berlin since AB pulled their service.
Any idea on the frequency of the BFS service?

They've been on sale on Easyjet.com for close to a week now despite not being formally announced until now.


Proud to fly from Manchester!

Do we think this will stop IB from starting the route?

What's the U2 frequency?



Next flights: LGW-LBA-LGW, LHR-SIN-SYD, SYD-BKK-LHR, LGW-GRO, GRO-CIA, CIA-MAD, MAD-LGW

With FR & U2 now the route id say there is 0 zero chance of IB to start it.

Also the BHD-LTN will now be moved back to BFS effective May 9th. Sounds like EZY maybe expanding again!

IB have farmed out a lot of MAD shorthaul flying to Air Nostrum and Vueling. An Air Nostrum operated service targetting connections would still be a possibility.

They should just close the CIA station - only BRS and SXF remain.

Correct me if im wrong but didnt IB used to operate a 320 into MAN then dropped it due to poor demand, then operated it with an Air Nostrum CRJ to target connections but again got dropped?

If Iberia do end up doing flights from Manchester to Madrid, it will marketed as London Heathrow "SOUTH"!!
Seriously though I am guessing that with the tie up with BA now, it might be a ploy to get some (BA) passengers to route via Madrid to/from Latin & South America on a one stop connection from Manchester.
It would appeal to me to route via Madrid than to have to go through the hell that is Heathow, (personal opinion & experience) then onto Madrid & then Latin / South America.
Personally I can't see it coming off but who knows.



Flying may not be all plain sailing, but the fun of it is worth the price.

I think you have to add MAN-BIO to that list, it was announced a few days/weeks ago.

So... with that and the BFS-MAN.. I will finally be able to get home other than via STN

Alas, it was indeed a typo - it should have read MAN-SXF, not MAD-SXF. I shall hang my head in shame.

That's OK , you will have made LuftyMatt very happy ... and speaking of typos ... I see you quoted my post before I had a chance to remove my typo with your username ... just shows that we are all fallible

Not necessarily because of poor demand, but due to massively increased competition. IB operated into MAN for years initially MAN-BCN-MAD, and latterly MAN-BCN and MAN-MAD. IB's demise was largely due to ZB operating to BCN, and later on to MAD, and also U2 and FR starting from LPL to MAD. These also killed off BA's flights to MAD which at one stage operated twice daily. Hence why MAD was left without a MAN link ever since BA Connect was absorbed into BE.

im surprised that there are no new routes to the middle east/ north africa.

There was a rumour of luton to amman and other destinations such as Beirut and cairo Also a second daily tlv.
Also moscow was greatly talked about

I guess the problems politically may have delayed the launch of these routes.

Does anyone know what route has replaced helsinki lgw/cdg route?

The problem with Moscow is the visa situation. For UK nationals to obtain a Russian visa is not straightforward and can be expensive.
LCCs departing the UK tend to serve destinations for which UK nationals either do not need a visa or can obtain a visa easily (eg on arrival).
