Doesn't look like the situation at Prestwick Airport is getting any better!

Prestwick Airport's government debt rises to £38.4m


https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-sc ... s-46730491

he debt owed by Prestwick Airport to the Scottish government has risen in the past year from £30m to £38.4m.

That was while revenue rose through a doubling of funds from refuelling aircraft at the publicly-owned facility.

Accounts lodged with Companies House show the holding company made a loss of £7.6m in the year to March, down from £8.6m the previous year.

Revenue was up on the year from £13.6m to £18.2m.

That included a £3m extra contribution from refuelling, and a rise of £300,000 in cargo earnings, reaching £2.8m.

The debt reflects recent years of losses that have built up since the Ayrshire airport was saved from closure by a Scottish government takeover.

Averaged 512 Passengers by day in November 2018 [October 2018 averaged 526] between Stansted and Dubai, according to https://www.caa.co.uk/uploadedFiles/CAA ... alysis.pdf
As there are only 354 Seats on the 77W used, that must both departing and arriving Pax, so each flight in (offseason) November was averaging 72.5% loadfactor, while in October it was 74.4%

Burger King are going to open at EDI

https://www.edinburghnews.scotsman.com/ ... -1-4852587

The popular burger restaurant follows the recent additions of Pret A Manger, BrewDog and Barburrito, all of which have been huge hits for passengers travelling through the Capital’s airport.

An opening date has yet to be confirmed however airport bosses confirmed it will be later this year.

In a UK first, the Burger King concession will boast a children’s interactive wall to keep youngster’s entertained, as well as self-service kiosks for customers or order on digital screens.

Gail Taylor, Director of Retail and Property at Edinburgh Airport said: “One of the brands passengers have continuously mentioned they want to see at Edinburgh Airport is Burger King so we’ve listened and are delighted to deliver that for them.

“Quality and variety are key considerations for us when we look at our food and beverage options and we’re always looking to offer greater choice, something which our new terminal expansion will allow us to do and we look forward to confirming more new outlets soon.”

Simon Smith, CEO of SSP UK & Ireland, said: “We’re delighted to announce the opening of our first Burger King unit at Edinburgh Airport, which will offer greater choice and service to both local and international travellers. This is our 30th Burger King restaurant to launch in the UK, and reflects our ongoing commitment to the brand and to providing our customers with the best offers from the most renowned names in food and beverage.”

All we have to go on is the monthly CAA data which gives you the hard figures but of course nothing about yields.

Qatar are struggling in the UK regions and these are November figures as published by the CAA and although provisional they are usually correct.

Cardiff 5221 pax from 44 sectors which is 119 per flight with a load factor amounting to 47%.

It is a new service and established routes like Manchester which actually had capacity increases only managed 62% load factor (despite being up 21%) and Edinburgh 60% (up 22%).

BHX (my local) was 8633 pax up 8% but still only 144 per flight and 57% load factor.

Useless stat of the day - Qatar started at BHX in March 2016 and every single flight has been operated by the 788 and not a single upgrade. In fact lets make it two - every DOH-BHX has left with not one cancellation as far as I know although there has been snow disruption on the inbound and tech issues on a couple of BHX-DOH flights.

On a separate matter - anyone notice the lack of information from the Flybe sale about BHX but there again it is only their biggest base and often has the most daily flights within the network, equating to more than 25% of the airports movements. Tense times after the MAEL collapse for some of the employees.

Not sure what to say but the previous 6 months figures are here and they are not made up - all from the CAA

October 27932 - 174 per flight
September 27356 - 185 per flight
August - 30440 - 215 per flight
July - 31082 - 219 per flight
June - 21722 - 138 per flight
May - 18000 - 140 per flight

The smallest aircraft used was the 254 seat 788 but the A359 now operates and the 77W has been subbed in as well.

I make 2018 294555 which means 32692 required to match 2017 (it should be exceeded) otherwise two years of contraction (2016 - 336461).

If you travel a lot in December, July and August then 90% would be achieved but little chance in May and June.

I'm sure it could but i don't think we'll ever see it on there. It'll be the 787 or nothing in my opinion.

Thanks, really useful. I wasn’t disputing the numbers and interesting to see the YoY figs.

Normally fly Apr and Oct annually.

Edinburgh Airport sets new record

More than 14.3 million passengers walked through its doors during 2018 - a rise of 6.5% on the previous year.

The figures were boosted by a 9.5% increase in international passenger numbers, as well as domestic growth of 1.9%.

Last year, 23 new routes were launched at the airport, with 11 new services to follow in 2019.

Edinburgh Airport chief executive Gordon Dewar said: "We're delighted to deliver yet another record year for a Scottish airport which highlights the incredible appetite there is for travel to and from Scotland.

"From the Middle East to the Far East, and Europe to America, we offer more than 150 destinations from Edinburgh and it's that variety of choice which is driving our growth."

Cardiff saw 1,579,286 passengers use the airport during 2018 up 7.9% on 2017.

2019 will see even more growth with TUI adding a based aircraft and 11 weekly flights and 4 new routes. Dubrovnik, Naples, Hurghada and Enfidha.
Thomas Cook will start in April a month early and will operate an A321 for the whole season.
Vueling will operate 14 weekly flights down by 2 weekly flights after dropping BCN and will operate ALC, AGP and PMI and unfortunately their IAG partners Iberia Express won't be returning with the Madrid route.
Ryanair though will go from 3 weekly to 10 weekly flights with the addition of 3 new routes Barcelona, Malta and Malaga.
Flybe will be operating 3 E175s but will end Rome Venice and Verona as well as Munich in September and Milan in October and have dropped Berlin and Dusseldorf. Obviously Flybe's future at CWL remains uncertain in the long term.
KLM will upgrade the 06.05 departure on Tuesdays and Fridays between May and July to the E190 and weekdays except Mondays in September and October.
Also Global trek will setup a base on the Southside expanding the business jet operation.
And Qatar Airways saw 55,568 passengers use the route. Average load factor of 132 53.2% LF between May and December.
Generally CWLs future is looking positive.

A lot more slower growth compared to the 2017 numbers. Some airports which had been increasing year on year numbers like GLA, BHX, LBA and ABZ showing slight decreases too.

I wonder how long it will be before somebody mentions the "B" word as the reason...

Loganair may have competition on Esbjerg as Danish Air Transport also want to fly the route.

Thanks for posting the link to YouTube.

I've recently been searching online for an update with photos showing the pier extension at Glasgow Airport in readiness for the EMIRATES A380 flights.

The extensive works that have taken place is more than I expected and it looks good, I particularly liked the air bridges all covered up it's not often that you see that!

Loganair will launch two new routes from City of Derry/Londonderry, both on Embraer 195 (49 seat plane):

- City of Derry to Manchester from 24 May 2019: 6 times weekly


Who are Loganair targeting on their Derry - London route? O&D pax wanting to go to London?

Why don’t they operate to Gatwick then they could codeshare with BA (which they already have an agreement with) and pax could connect onto BA’s flights. I know LHR is generally full but LGW has slots doesn’t it?

Thanks

FlyBMI had slots at Stansted so they've been transferred to Loganair. There are connections onto Emirates there though

Isn't the Derry-Stansted route a PSO service ?

Aer Lingus Regional operated by Stobart Air are ceasing Cork to Southampton from 20 May 2019, with KLM due to cease operating Amsterdam to Southampton on 29 March 2019 this is a major blow to Southampton Airport and with the loss of those two airlines it leaves the airport with no national flag carriers serving it and this comes just as the airport has submitted it's recent master plan that involves a 170m runway extension and expansion of the current terminal and apron.

Any significant changes with the Virgin/Connect Airways takeover of Flybe resulting in a cull of marginal routes will more than likely have a very detrimental effect on Southampton Airport.

With the runway extension and larger stands the airport is hinging it's hopes on attracting low cost airlines and in particular a based operation from the likes of EasyJet replicating in some part the success of Southend in attracting low cost airlines EasyJet and Ryanair after it's runway was lengthened.
94 Countries, 327 Destinations Worldwide, 32 Airlines, 29 Aircraft Types, 182 Airports, 335 Flights.

Just curious but are these compounded, so it's 17 weekly total, or do 6 of the 11 direct continue to Stornoway..

That feeling when you sit at the end of a runway, brakes are released and the raw power takes over. Now that is a thing of beauty and it never gets old.
