Sorry to deviate from topic on the first reply. But looked at your photo of G-IGOH. I find it interesting that easyJet applied the new "Come on lets fly" slogan seeing as it was leaving the fleet so soon. Seems odd, especially considering many aircraft still carry the old slogan.

Oh, and some CVT gossip...lol. Tech 735 this weekend so they've had a 757 to fill in. Great seeing that on CVTs runway. Was up in the air well before the 737s are! Guess it was pretty empty though with only 130 odd passengers on.

Bournemouth and Coventry Update.

BOURNEMOUTH
Bournemouth is currently Thomsonfly's best performing base, indicating that BOH is doing better than Coventry at this present time.

Obviously, Bournemouth was a smart move for ThomsonFly.

Thomsonfly were going to base another plane at Bournemouth commencing early Summer 06, but due to the excellent load factors, another 737 is to be based at Bournemouth at an earlier time. The date of which the plane will arrive is yet to be confirmed.

One must also note that Thomsonfly have got G-THOK and G-THOJ coming soon, and these Aircraft haven't been allocated a base yet.

COVENTRY

As for building a new terminal at the airport, the council has said that costs may be mounting to high to continue fighting against the airport.

More news for Coventry I will include.

Jimmi, maybe next time you start a new thread you could call it "Bournemouth and CVT movements" and so I could include all this stuff from Coventry in the right place.  Wink Cheers

Jimmi and anyone else @ BOH, could you possibly get a pic of a Rockhopper Britten Norman or something? Don't make a special trip of it obviously, it would be nice just to see other pics of them.

Thanks.

A kind message to the people who think no-body cares about Bournemouth Airport:

  • People do find this Thread useful, that's why the last thread had 99 replies and this thread has had 424 views and it was only put on yesterday.

  • Some people actually live in Bounemouth and the surrounding area's and would like a place to write stuff about the Airport. Without having to read stupid comments.

  • This thread has as much right to be here as any other thread, plus it only takes up about 2cm of space on the main forum page, so why people can't avoid it I do not know. Give people somewhere to write stuff about the Airport.

  • So, lets leave the stupid comments out can we, and start acting like grown-ups. Or is that too hard?

    Now then, back to the Subject, Bournemouth and Coventry.

    Cheers, Ryan

    Hi again,

    Thomsonfly is to give up its routes from Coventry to
  • Shannon
  • Cork
  • Naples
  • Lyon and Salzburg by the end of March.

    On the bright side, New routes are coming to Coventry. Starting this Summer:

  • Faro
  • Paris CDG
  • Barcelona

    Source: Luchtzak Aviation

    It's a shame about the routes which are going, but at least some new routes will be starting this summer from CVT.
    If you add to this the Charter flights from Coventry this summer, you have quite a nice program.

    Coventry is still after an extension to the passenger terminal. It is needed as when I went, the terminal was a Porta Cabin! Big grin

    Hello,

    Well, the demand on the routes from Bournemouth has been is extremely high, and the load factors are very good. Due to this, a 3rd plane maybe based at Bournemouth as early as July this year. They're is obviously enough passengers to make it financially viable. If there is lots of demand from a certain airport, and there is money to be made, they will base more Aircraft there.

    If TOM start introducing more routes, they will need more Aircraft for that.

    Hey,

    When Buzz was due to fly here, They were getting flights fully booked, But then, when Ryanair decided to buy them out and cancel the Bournemouth Flights, Everything was ruined, until this March, Thomsonfly, Many people here I think have waited to see if the flights would actually start, As the have, I think those people who waited, will book again.

    Once again though, I would have to ask, They wouldn't base another plane here till they launch more services??

    Quoting European (Reply 15):

    If there is high demand for the flights currently operating from Bournemouth, Thomsonfly will notice more money can be made by basing another plane there to operate the same routes but just more regularly. Thomsonfly may also notice that they could make these flights more regular, and fill the plane up still. This makes them more money.

    They have actually noticed this, and instead of basing a third aircraft at BOH in early summer 06, as planned, they are thinking about July 05.

    But these regular flights will mean more Aircraft. If TOM do base another aircraft, I feel quite certain they will add more routes.

    They may not be able to fly any more routes until they base more aircraft there anyway.

    If you can fill the aircraft, More Aircraft = More Money.

    I understand what you are saying Jimmi, and there is still a possibility of them introducing more routes without more aircraft, like they have done at Coventry.

    Basically, they will probably introduce more routes when the third plane arrives.

    Lyon and Salzburg are only winter routes anyway. flyBe at BHX stops SZG for the winter, Lyon is similar. Naples was always an interesting choice, glad theyve tried it, but they can obviously make more money on the sunshine routes. Shannon and Cork weren't going to be easy up against flyBe who are very established on those routes from BHX. baby have also started Cork from BHX.

    Some excellent news concerning flights at BOH.

    This Summer at Bournemouth, the following will be operating into and out of BOH.


    • Futura 737 (Spanish Charter Airline, they are excellent)
    • European Aircharter 737
    • Spanair A320/1
    • EuroAtlantic 737-300
    • EuroCypria 737-800
    • British Airways 777
    • Thomsonfly 767 200/300


    Wether or not this list is fully correct I am not sure. It's just what i've heard of.
    I think the British 777 will be operating a one off Charter.

    Jet2 where supposed to have started dialy services to Belfast on the 23rd of March.

    There are Rumors floating around concerning:

  • Jet2 adding routes to Edinborough and Prague daily
  • Thomsonfly adding routes to Venice and Alicante
  • AirSouthwest starting a twice dialy Manchester service

    Please ask for any more information on this.

    And Yes, Jet2 have launched, I have seen "Jet2 Belfast" and "Jet2 Ireland" at Bournemouth already.

    Hi! fellow BOH fans! I was positive from the very beginning that thomsonfly would do well at BOH and they certaintly have done. It would be great to see thomsonfly and JET 2 add more flights. This should also prompt Ryanair to plan more routes as well! I have heard a lot of rumors about Air South West too, mainly from the PPrune website.

    I hope that the new routes are here during the summer. It will be fab to see such a mix of airlines at BOU and all these new routes. To be able to go and see all those colours and mix of a/c would be fab. All BOU would then need is Southwest to make BOU a base with links to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle and a couple of other destinations. Make a nicer alternative than SOU thats for sure.

    Hello there,

    Quoting European (Reply 22):
    Coventry's runway is soo small, What made Thomsonfly.com want to fly there?Is the traffic figures good? God, Tiny runway.

    I think it was because, close by Airports such as Birmingham and East Midlands, were well served by Bmibaby and Ryanair(at the time). Thomsonfly must of saw the opportunity at Coventry Airport, the fact that no-body else operated from there, Low-Cost was a bonus.

    Airport fees at Coventry would be less than Birmingham, and basing a small amount of Aircraft there to see how things go, they had nothing really to lose-Mainly due to the fact the prices would be low, and there are many surrounding area's such as:

  • Leamington-Spa
  • Northampton
  • Warwick
  • Solihull
  • Stratford on Avon
  • Birmingham
  • Wolverhampton
  • Rugby

    which would be well served, and the residents would like the low prices (that Birmingham may not offer), and the fact it is nearer (for some of them) than Birmingham.

    The surrounding area's of Coventry are a very nice place to visit, because you have got to think about passengers coming into the U.K. Warwick Castle, The Black Country Museum, Shakespeare's House- Places like this people enjoy flying over here to see.

    Thomsonfly have already started taking advantage of Shakespeare:



    The 31st of March will be the end of a first full year for Thomsonfly at Coventry Airport Lets hope the second year will be just as, or if not, more successful! Big grin

    Quoting European (Reply 22):
    So, When could we see Southwest/Ryanair/Jet2/Thomsonfly start routes at the earliest?

    Well, all I know at the moment is stuff to do with Thomson:  Smile

    THOMSON HOLIDAYS

  • Tenerife, May - October / every Friday, with this flight being Shared with MyTravel
  • Pula, May - October / every Tuesday.
  • Palma - This flight will be on the Thomsonfly, Low-Cost Aircraft
  • Malaga - This flight will be on the Thomsonfly, Low-Cost Aircraft

    As usual, check back later as I will have probably included some more. My understanding though is mainly Thomson Holidays / Thomsonfly  Wink

    Well the fact that parent company Tui bought Coventry Airport would mean that their fees will be very low indeed.

    Also it is providing a low cost product within an area with a large population - any airport with a long enough runway would be suitable. Yes there would be less passenger facilities than at BHX, but if the costs were low enough and the airport convenient, then that would be enough for many local passengers to choose it rather than drive to BHX or EMA.

    Yes, www.flybournemouth.com is a good website, it tells you all the routes. I also have a Skytours Holiday brochure which I use, Skytours are part of TUI, like Thomson, and Skytours's flights are operated by Thomson, and it tells me the flights from Bournemouth.

    There is a Bournemouth Movements thread on PPRune, which is useful:
    Bounemouth

    and there is one for Coventry on the same website.

    Thomsonfly Update,


    BOURNEMOUTH


    A delayed Thomsonfly 737, was diverted to Gatwick, due to bad weather conditions at Bournemouth.

    A 757 arrived at Bournemouth this afternoon, to operate some Thomsonfly flights, because the crew on-board the delayed 737 mentioned above, had ran out of flight hours.

    COVENTRY

    One of the Coventry based 735's has gone Tech, so another 757 has been operating Thomsonfly flights, while the 735 is in Amsterdam for repair works.

    Please feel free to correct me on any of these points.

    Actually I was just saying. Unless someone knows for sure the pax figures at BOH, and those at Robin Hood, then they may be doing better at Robin Hood. No untruth in that though...

    No passenger numbers for DSA (obviously - opens April 28th), but here are some (oldish) passenger numbers for BOH:
    2004: 499,236
    2003: 464,517
    Up: 7.47%

    Thomsonfly made the numbers at Coventry go up a bit:
    2004: 462,368
    2003: 2,429
    Up 18935.32% Wow!

    This was due to fog in Jersey.

    I don't know why certain members of A.net seem to take a delight in taking the p**s out of BOH. Did they know that actually it has a lot of history to it. It was the birth place of the famous BAC 1-11 and also contributed a lot to the manufacturing of the Vickers Viscount. It is also home to the last remaining Sea Vixen, still flying today. BOH is also very proud to be home to the World's second best airline! Pax numbers are increasing every year and thanks to JET 2 and Thomsonfly, this time next year these figures will have doubled to almost a million. I can't see any reason to take the p**s out of that!

    Hey,

    Bournemouth also contributed to the famous Concorde! And acording to the BOH airport paper (skybourne news) it was a temporary airport for Heathrow, while it was being built.

    It's because there are like 5 or 6 running threads about BOH  Wink

    Not having a dig at BOH or Palmair here. But I'm sick and tired of seeing this everywhere. The fact that HolidayWhich have published this absolute cr*p proves they have no credibility and not a clue about the travel industry.
