Manchester UK News 7

Tue Sep 19, 2006 9:46 pm

Seemed like time to start a new thread, seeing as the last one was getting rather lengthy.

From the MAplc webste today

Manchester will have daily flights to Toronto in new flyglobespan route


AIRLINE TO FLY TO TORONTO FROM £99 INC TAXES
- AND VANCOUVER AND CALGARY FROM £159 INC TAXES!

Manchester is to have a daily service to Toronto as rapidly-expanding airline flyglobespan continues its remarkable UK growth.

The web-based airline are to fly to the hugely popular Canadian city from May of next year with prices starting from only £99 one way including taxes.

At the same time, the company are also to launch flights from Manchester to Vancouver twice a week and Calgary once a week. These flights start from £159 per sector including taxes.

The Toronto service, will be the first daily transatlantic route on offer from Manchester by flyglobespan who will launch a three-day week service to Cape Town from Manchester in November.

The daily Manchester service is part of a comprehensive flyglobespan programme to Toronto Hamilton International – an airport which is growing in popularity because of its convenient location between downtown Toronto and Niagara Falls and the ease in which passengers can progress through it.

As well as the Manchester programme, the airline will fly daily to Canada from both London Stansted and Glasgow from next May and will also have weekly flights from Edinburgh, Birmingham, Newcastle, Doncaster’s Robin Hood Airport , Exeter, Belfast and Liverpool’s John Lennon International.

As with their Cape Town service, flyglobespan will offer will three fare bands on their Canadian flights – Economy, Economy Premier Service Upgrade and Business Class. With Premier Service Upgrade prices starting at only £144 one way including taxes and Business at only £204 one way including taxes, the company expect a high demand on these upgraded seats.

Flyglobespan’s parent company, the Globespan Group has over 30 years experience working in the Canadian travel market, giving the web-based airline the ideal background to launch this 2007 programme.

“Canada was the foundation on which we built the Globespan name,” says flyglobespan chairman Tom Dalrymple. “And I have been very keen to get the airline flying Canadian routes.

“We know the market very well over there. That knowledge, allied to flyglobespan’s ability to offer the most competitive fares will give us a very good all round product that I am sure will go well with our customers.

“I am sure, too, that our customers will appreciate the benefits of flying into Toronto’s Hamilton International airport. It is in a superb location for Toronto, Niagara Falls and Ontario’s main tourist attractions and has a great reputation for processing passengers quickly and efficiently saving time overall on both arrival and departure.

“There are very strong links between the UK and Canada and we look forward to a lot of activity on what I am sure will prove to be a very popular route.

“Toronto will be our first daily service out of Manchester but with Cape Town starting soon and our Canadian West coast programme due to begin next May we are quickly adding to our Manchester programme.

“I think the Manchester people appreciate the type of service we are bringing to their doorstep and I look forward to their continuing support.

“We will also be bringing tourism and significant business traffic into the airport which can only be good for the region.”

Tim McDermott, Director of Aviation Development at Manchester Airport said: “Canada is fast becoming one of the most popular destinations from Manchester and I’m sure that the new flights announced by flyglobespan will prove to be a hit with leisure and business passengers alike.”

All these Canadian flights are now available on their website www.flyglobespan.com. As with all flyglobespan programmes, customers will soon be able to choose from a large selection of packages with transfers, tours and hotel accommodation included.

Ends.

So basically, not new services, just Air Transat's with a different plane!

Whats the point in flying somewhere for £99 if you have to pay £450 to get back?

If it's £99 each way (+taxes) then I'm going to Toronto next year  Smile

Thanks Gooner. Plenty of choice next year between MAN and YYZ/YHM then.

From the Jet2 website.....

Summer 2007, new flights to Barcelona, Berlin SXF, Paris CDG, Toulouse, Venice and Warsaw.

I wonder if Globespan's plans will affect Air Canada's plans at all? Although Hamilton is great for 727 spotting (the one reason I'd be interested) it is unlikely to feature many connecting opportunities compared with YYZ other than some LCC flights which would have to be booked on seperate tickets.

A smart move for Globespan would be a tie up with Westjet, which would then offer a viable alternative to Air Canada for some onward destinations.

Great news. BCN, CDG are daily, WAW and VCE 4 weekly flights, SXF is 5 weekly, going up to 6 weekly, and TLS is 5 weekly.

This would be a brilliant Idea especially if WS would add some flights into the US as well. They already fly from every major ceneter in Canada so it would probably work well for both parties.

Well you never know in todays airline industry

At last, the opportunity to do a day's business in Barcelona from Manchester without having to go via another city! Am hoping this move will force Monarch to lower their BCN fares, too.

Interesting to see how LS are taking on old WW routes to CDG & BCN and a BD route to TLS...

TG have said they'll be here in 2007, presumably when they get their 2 class 772ER's coming through. I'd be surprised if it goes via BRU, and I'll stick to SQ as well if it does.

Hopefully MH will come back again!! With a 777 this time!

From source at Servisair:
Norwegian Air Shuttle to carry on services at MAN through winter.

Icelandair have based 757-200 TF-FII at MAN for 3 months for sub-charter work, they have 14 crew staying in the Palace Hotel in Manchester city centre on standby for the whole time the aircraft is based in the UK.
Ferrried in from KEF on Monday.
A good idea really, as many MAN operators have been short this summer with aircraft.

Yep can confirm this. Just checked their website, flights to operate on mondays and fridays throughout the winter. Good news for me and my friends in bergen as we have used this route twice already and plan on using it many times more.

Didn't one of the press reports say a possible link up with westjet was on the cards? Looks like a B6 codeshare might be possible too after switching LPL-EWR to JFK.

Would make sense as BRU is really badly connected to the East....certainly since the demise of Sabena.

They did indeed, but that was a while ago when things were different, before fuel prices went through the roof and before two class long haul a/c (a la 772ER) became the norm.

The additional costs associated with a stop are prohibitive. SQ costs were ridiculous for the SQ345/6 flights due to having to have an additional crew board in ZRH, fly to MAN and back then have another day off. Coupled with the poor loads on these flights as most preferred the nonstop and it's a no brainer.

I hope they come regardless same as everyone. But if it's with a European stop both ways then they'd better offer some stunning fares or I'll be sticking with SQ to S.E. Asia and down under.

Since any future far east airline, with a stop in Europe, will be competing with the already successful EK, EY and QTR services that, for the most part, have decent connections to the far east, via the Gulf, as well as a 5 or 7/week SQ direct service, I can see it being hard going for them. Moreso now that EK is going 2/day with a 773.

MH still has to get its house in order, CX, well who knows. TG, expected next year, will be catering for the tourist, DOM and australia stopover market. Other than that, China and Japan are rumoured, but nothing more, and given the connections via LHR and others I don't think those routes could be sustained.

They probably don't want to, but MAN-LHR connections are most frequent (BA & BMI), probably followed by CDG, AMS and FRA.

It looked like a Virgin A346 - red tail, a seemingly wider than usual wing-span, very loud; thought I saw four engines but it was disappearing behind the conifer trees by then. As they're landing on 24L at the moment I think my perspectives must be playing up. I'm guessing it was possibly one of the XLA flights that came in around then. Presume ringway usually pick up all the interesting planned arrivals?

LOL......what did you think it was??

One thing I noticed this evening was a strong side wind which meant that everything was approaching MAN at a 30 degree angle. I've been watching arrivals over where I live for the best part of 37 years, and I've never noticed anything this severe before. There must have been one hell of a slip stream up there.

If, as you speculate, it was an XL flight, then it was probably the Travel City 743 with the XL tail titles. Think it might be TF-AME.

Any Travel City flights operate under Excel code and callsign. TF-AME is the based MAN Travel City 743 at the moment, this has the Travel City tail, TF-AMJ has the XL.com tail with red engines, but is based at LGW.
Also TF-AMK is based at MAN, but that is all white with XL.com tail.

It is a tour aircraft on behalf of someone, if I remember. Servisair currently sorting out handling arranges for it.

It may be LGW-based but I have seen it at MAN twice in the past month.

Have heard a whisper that the new proposed early morning EK arrival from DXB may well form part of an onward service to a city in the USA. Has anyone heard anything about this?

No-one seems to have reported this here yet, but manchesterspotters2 on yahoo is all aflutter because the AN225 will be turning up at MAN this afternoon, ETA 15:30, cs ADB116F. Staying until tuesday apparently.

Also a first visit from A6-EBS, EK's latest 773.
