VA is increasing BNE-HBA year round by two services per week from July 13, bringing their total on this route to nine per week:
BNE-HBA VA708 1910-2200 5 73H from 13July
BNE-HBA VA706 1620-1910 7 73H from 22July
HBA-BNE VA701 0715-0950 6 73H from 14July
HBA-BNE VA709 1945-2220 7 73H from 22July
Does that bring the number of planes parked overnight to 4? Apron space is quickly running out down there!
This will make it five jets overnighting on a Friday: a 737 and 717 for QF, plus now three 737s for VA. There is enough apron space to accommodate this; the limiting factor though is the gates. Although VA officially has two gates, it is effectively just one gate which gets double banked depending on which side of the desk you walk past. There is only a single doorway to walk through as you transition from landside to airside.
Interesting. Thanks! I look forward to seeing what HBA management come up with about the departure hall. Hard space to work with, but those long walks to the ends of the apron are a pain. Also a shame the new arrivals hall is up one end and has only two carousels. Didn't future proof that!
