MAN News 47

Mon Oct 01, 2012 11:01 am

I wanted to post in 46 but it seems to have been closed.

I flew out last week and the new control tower is coming along nicely.

Does anybody have any idea when it will be complete and what will happen to the old building?

Not sure if I trust Wikipedia too much, but it's suggesting that MAN is getting 2 further new routes for Summer 2013:

FR to NCE from the 11/03/13

and

AC to YYZ from the 01/05/2013

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manchester_Airport

Can anyone confirm if these are true?

CX has MAN in its plans again but not till 2015/2016 when they will send the A350. Subject to change obviously!

Quoting Mattuk (Reply 1):

Air Canada is only weeks away from launching a new low cost carrier and it is widely rumoured but not confirmed that YYZ to MAN is one of the European destinations.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/stor...012/09/19/air-canada-low-cost.html

As I travel to MAN a couple of times per year, I welcome the addition of another option.

It would be great to see AC at MAN

Would its low cost subsidary be operating long haul routes?

Can't see CX making a move, they will reduce the staff number's at MAN which has got a lot of people confused, they don't have many to start with several quotes including , Cathays words 'MAN is chronically overstaffed and a staff base of that size is unsustainable in the long run'.

The only other early rumor is the news of JAL to Japan in conjunction with BA's new 'JSA' using 787 aircraft!

as we come into the winter timetable 2013 is looking rather shaky at the moment.

CX isn't a rumour. MAN was listed in a PowerPoint presentation I saw about forthcoming destinations planned this decade for the longhaul fleet.

Just extremely annoying that they see fit to keep routing passengers over LHR pending the A350. from the Routeshop website:

"Indirect traffic from MAN in 2011 to HKG was 103,000 (MIDT 2011). Leakage from the MAN catchment to London airports was 163,000 (CAA 2011). " That CAA figure equates to nearly 450 passengers per day. Get the majority of cargo shifted on the 3 or 4 weekly 74F service onto the passenger service and then tell me why that they can't operate this route now.

No doubt when the time comes. they'll do the stupid thing by making it a one-stop route and not something that will enhance the route i.e operate it non-stop.

The intention is to make it non-stop and the A350 with it's low operating costs with enable that. Correctly or not, at the moment the company have decided that the yields and loads are such that it is not profitable. Remember, the figure you quoted is an annual travel figure no doubt with many passengers concentrated around Christmas, Easter, Summer holidays etc. CX might struggle to fill an aircraft at other times of the year.

In addition to all this is that we are chronically short of pilots and any expansion must take this into account. Also the company did not make a profit so far this year and we have cut back on services to North America not because they are not doing well but because they need to pull the 777-300ERs off the routes to be able to send them to Europe to replace the now-inefficient 747-400. 2013+2014 will be about replacing the remaining 747-400s to Europe and restoring those frequencies to North America when more 777-300ERs arrive. When the next longhaul destination is launched, it will be EWR because of the high yields New York provide - higher than MAN.

By end of 2013, all four CX LHR flights will be 777-300ERs. With the addition of a 5th LHR sector unlikely for the time being because of slots, it makes launching MAN the next logical step, especially when you have gone to 4x 777s a day to LHR from 3x 744s (Big loss of seatcount).

CX's policy towards new destinations has always been to only launch when they are confident of profit from almost day one. This does mean that many destinations which are probably viable, are missed out until demand grows to such levels that profitability is assured!! This is changing however and the CEO has said that we must take a "launch it and see" attitude to new destinations now. We will have to wait and see whether MAN is one of those wait and see places!

Does anybody have any idea when it will be complete and what will happen to the old building?

I have heard a couple different suggestions for the re-use of the control tower once the new one is opened. I understand that the condition of the office building on which the tower rests is in poor condition and would need a reasonable amount of investment if it were to be converted to alternative uses. The two primary uses I have heard discussed are:

1) Refurbish the old building and convert to office space for airport tenants (freeing up space in the terminal buildings) and other third parties, boosing airport property revenues.

2) Remove the building as a precursor project to support the eventual linking of Terminals 1 and 3 and construction of a consolidated departure hall. This would be driven primarily by the need to provide additional capacity in Terminal 3, which could be required if the airport begins to return to the traffic levels experienced during its peak in 2005-06. The particulars of how the terminals could be linked together is something under study at present.

Quote:
Pakistani carrier airblue starting 27NOV12 will begin Airbus A340 operation on Islamabad – Manchester service, providing 4 weekly nonstop flights. The A340 is configured in all-Economy Class 328 seats.

Currently the carrier operates Airbus A319/320 aircraft with an intermediate stop in Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen, which will be cancelled when it converts service to nonstop. Schedule:

PA220 ISB1400 – 1900MAN 343 x146
PA221 MAN2100 – 1110+1ISB 343 x146

Has this been discussed before? Not sure. It seems to be a hefty increase in capacity; I wonder how this might affect PK?

Well there was another thread on here about a month ago reporting that PK were stopping a number of European destinations including MAN but that they would keep OSL for example. It seemed a pretty strange decision in my opinion (stopping MAN) but it was to do with an allinace between PK and TK. Anyway, the story seemed to die away pretty quickly but maybe Airblue sensed blood and is going for the kill!

TP is talking of launching FNC-MAN and, in quite a rare move for a MAN route, is saying most passengers on it's LIS service are point-to-point so are looking at bumping up frequency to gain more connecting passengers.

And surprising news is that MAN is FR's 2nd biggest UK airport for flights.

It was a pseudo-charter operation though, where you could only book via aeroflot themselves and get hand written tickets from them (have one myself).

Not sure if it was a true scheduled service for that reason.

Happy to be corrected.  

Still, nice to be the only airport outside of London to link Russia with the UK, and fantastic to see easyjet reaffirming MAN as their northwest airport of choice.

This comment put forward by the Northern Economic Futures Commission popped up in the Independent earlier this week in which MAN is proposed as the 2nd hub for the UK. Alas, with the mix and match of airlines it will be a tad difficult to organise; further refinement of the BE domestic hubbing may have to come first which can then allow prospective new long-haul routes to garner further feed - it would also need more commercial agreements to be sought by BE and those airlines . It would also necessitate some spending on boosting terminal facilitie and capacity. T1 is the most pressing to upgrade but I don't know if it's better to look at T2 and T3 first to maximse their potential as it may be easier to temporarily displace airlines there whilst T1 is upgraded.

I see that EK017 (DXB - MAN) is diverted today to MUC 'due to operational reasons'. Flightradar24 shows that it left DXB via a normal route up over Baghdad heading NNW towards Eastern Turkey. It got to within 30kms of Turkish airspace when it then did an about turn and headed SW and over Central Syria, Cyprus, Greek Islands. It is now over Bosnia (10:15GMT, 11:15CET). Looking at the route on flight radar it seems to have been denied permission to enter Turkish airspace and had to skirt round the South of Turkey, has it Syrian diplomats on board perhaps?
Anyway, this substantial diversion has obviously meant a fuel shortage and hence the stop at MUC.

MAN is as organised as any other UK airport, in so far as it can only respond to local weather conditions when and as they occur. In a maritime climate like ours, freezing conditions can be very localised and often very hard to predict. Last week Heathrow had problems, this week Manchester did.
