    MAN: well we all know about the countless Jet2 routes starting in the coming weeks and months, Sky Europe to Warsaw, Bratislava and Krakow, GB Airways starting various routes around the Med resorts, FCA have a couple of new long hauls for the summer months. AC returning in the summer on the YYZ-MAN-YYZ route. Thats all for the time being, hoping for more annoucements before the summer starts.

    PLH - A decision should be given this year regarding the extension of runway 13/31, announcement of flights to CDG/AMS is still being talked about by Air Southwest.

    NQY - Completion of the terminal expansion, should also be a fourth airline operating there soon.

    I'll add to GLA:

    Emirates upgrade to 777-300ER 1st Oct.

    FlyGlobespan have just announced that Malaga and Palma will be double daily.

    FlyGlobespan to announce a replacement for ORY ?

    CO to upgrade frequency to 11x weekly on 752

    PIA- To start GLA - Lahore/Karachi/Islamabad ?

    LH to start FRA or MUC ?

    SN to start GLA-BRU ?

    Wizz to start GLA-WAW ?

    Lithuanian Airlines to start GLA-Vilnius ?

    QR to start GLA-Doha

    Still rumours of tx flights such as NWA-DTW but highly improbable at this late stage.

    I recently read in an aviation magazine (can't remember which one now) that BRS has been in talks with both Wizz Air and Air Polonia. Now that Air Polonia is no more, perhaps Wizz will start flights this year to WAW, KTW and maybe GDN from the southwest.

    The news stories regarding 2x daily to Malaga and Palma also state that a replacement destinaton for ORY has yet to be finalised.

    It take what the ET have said with a pinch of salt  Big grin , I'd be quite happy to be proven wrong, but I think this from GSM is their replacement for ORY, for this summer anyway.

    I think it's more likely to be a Delhi-Amritsar-Salford-Bradford-Birmingham-Wolverhampton-Toronto flight

    Actually AC now has reintroduced the YYZ-DEL flight (not sure when they did that as I don;t live permanently in Canada anymore). I think they used to run that on a good old L-1011 via Rome or Milan if I'm not mistaken

    GustyOrange,

    The chance of SN starting GLA is very good. There has been quite a positive dialogue. No idea of schedule etc, but will post more when I hear later in the week.

    Have heard that LTN are in talks with Aer Arran to secure future routes to Ireland, with the success of the twice daily services to Waterford and Galway.

    Would be great to see an LTN-ORK service, that would mean LTN then has Ireland pretty much covered as they will have the new LTN-SNN services starting in March.

    Britannia/Thomsonfly will continue their weekly service from LTN-SSH throughout the summer. They will be the only airport other than MAN and LGW that will have the service.

    WOuld be great to see some long haul charters out of LTN and save having to trek around the M25 to LGW, despite the length of the runway ZB successfully operated their A330 to SFB before 9/11.

    Dont see much more LCC growth at LTN this year since the annoucnement of FR launching 4x 738's at the airport. Late last year there was phenominal growth at the airport with numerous low cost routes. EZY are taking over defunct airline VolareWebs LTN-Cagliari service from March which will be daily.

    The 2nd daily rotations between AGP and PMI could possibly occur during the early hours of the morning. Which would still leave room another aircraft to operate another destination.


    Anyone heard anything about FlyBE increasing flights from LPL and NWI? When do they expect to receive the 737's??

    The Carlisle flights are being operated by a Bath-based travel agency with a BAe 146-100 (G-JEAO) which is currently at Filton. Flights from Luton each morning and then back at night. Aircraft available for charter from Carlisle during the day. Looking to start flights about June/July time.

    The plan is to link the flights to Easyjets routes but fares are not cheap (£200 for a round trip). Also, the timings of the flights favour London-based business people looking for day trips.

    Fingers crossed this works or something else is announced soon. The website has gone back under construction again.

    Jamie.

    I guess you mean with BY, because NCL-SSH will be operated in the summer using Thomas Cook 757s instead of the Britannia 757s which currently operate the SSH flights from NCL

    Albanian Airlines were supposed to start flights to LHR from Tirana using BAe 146 planes last summer. They were banned last summer by the CAA for safety violations, and they wanted to fly Tirana (what's the code for Tirana?) to London. Nowhere to be seen still.

    Aberdeen (ABZ) - Oslo (OSL) from 17th. January 2005  Smile

    NEWS RELEASE

    City Star Airlines announces Aberdeen Oslo route Starting January 2005

    New carrier on the Aberdeen aviation scene City Star Airlines Ltd has announced the launch of flights between Aberdeen & Oslo Gardermoen Airport.

    Atli Amason, chief executive officer of City Star Airlines, says:

    "There is a long history of flights between Aberdeen and Norway, but the Oslo market has been poorly served. We intend rectifying that with a twice a day weekday service between the oil capital of the UK - and the capital of Norway"

    City Star will offer the opportunity for travellers to do a days work in Oslo and return in the evening, currently nigh on impossible with the connections via transit airports such as Stavanger and Amsterdam. The savings in time and of course expense for the business traveller in avoiding overnight stays, and minimising travelling time will be welcomed by communities at both ends of the route.



    The Monday to Friday service is due to start on Monday January 17th, with provisional timetabling as follows: (all times are local)

    Depart Aberdeen 0610 Arrive Oslo 0900
    Depart Oslo 0920 Arrive Aberdeen 1010
    Depart Aberdeen 1710 Arrive Oslo 2000
    Depart Oslo 2020 Arrive Aberdeen 2110

    Operating a modern Dornier 328-110 aircraft, City Star will provide a high level of service in a 32 seat single cabin, with all (leather) club-style seats either window or aisle.

    Arnason continues:

    "The Dornier 328 is the perfect aircraft for-the business traveller, and for this-route. With an operational cruise ceiling of 31,000 feet and speed of 380 mph, City Star makes Oslo reachable in less than two hours. Passengers will be impressed by the low noise levels and big jet feel. Our market research indicates something in the region of 300 companies with representation in both Aberdeen and Oslo; it's our intention to provide those businesses with a quick and convenient way to do business. We expect the Aberdeen business community to welcome this sub two-hour service with open arms."

    "We'd also like to take this opportunity to thank Andy Flower and his team at Aberdeen Airport for their support, and thank the Scottish Executive for supporting the route through their route development fund."

    Andy Flower, managing director of Aberdeen Airport says:
    "A direct service to Oslo is a terrific addition to our route network, and we are delighted that City Star Airlines have chosen Aberdeen Airport as their base. We look forward to continuing to support City Star to develop and grow their business in the future"

    City Star Airlines Ltd. is an Aberdeen based company with shareholders from both the UK and Iceland. The company is affiliated to Landsflug in Iceland who operate domestic services in that country.

    Reservations for the new service open on Monday December 13th , with opening fares from El 98.00 plus taxes/charges and can be made direct by calling City Star on Aberdeen 01224 722610. A web site will soon be available and in the future booking will be possible via travel agents and web sites utilising the Galileo or Amadeus GDS systems.

    The aircraft will be available for charter work, with special interest groups, clubs, and other markets targeted. Football in Manchester, stag weekends in Amsterdam, clubbing in Iceland, and many other opportunities are easily within range of the Dornier 328.

    While First Choice Airways will be restarting long-haul flights from EMA for the first time since 2001, the destinations are not quite correct!

    SNBA has a spare unit released from one of their Scandinavian routes. Looks very positive. Operations people are in GLA next week. Could start in March.

    According to this article in Al-Ahram newspaper (Egypt's largest newspaper) new flights from LGW to Al-Alamein Airport on Egypt's Mediterranean North Coast will be launched

    http://weekly.ahram.org.eg/2005/724/tr4.htm (half way down under "New charters to the North Coast")

    IN AN ATTEMPT to market the Mediterranean North Coast of Egypt to international travellers, the Movenpick Resort & Spa Al-Alamein recently signed an agreement to launch the first international charter flight to Al-Alamein airport with the famous British operator Peltours. Flights from Gatwick Airport, London, have already started by the end of 2004.

    This is the first I heard of this. Anyone have any info like airline, aircraft type, flight numer, etc?

    I have heard Emirates will increase frequencies. MAN 15xdaily, GLA 22xdaily and start flights from Coventry and Durham TeesValley, only joking, I hope.

    Hous, Astraeus 737-700s maybe? They tend to operate to some of the more unusual destinations
