Mipim In Cannes, Widebodies At NCE?

Thu Mar 15, 2007 6:09 am

It is the big http://www.mipim.com/App/homepage.cfm?moduleid=399&appname=100517 conference in Cannes this week, demand for flights to NCE increases massively, was wondering if any interesting extra vists or substitutes have been visiting.

Each and every year In May, for the Cannes Film festival and the "Grand Prix de Monaco", Air France is used to send some B744 to NCE.
Some flights are planned to be operated with a B773ER from Orly this year, and probably also a few B744 from CDG.

Thanks for your post Richard ! I work close to NCE and I wondered why the biz-jet parking area was so full this week...

There is a discussion in the CapAero forums regarding visitors to NCE this week. In short, Wed & Fri Swissair flights were assured by A320s, Lufthansa flights from various german airports using B733, A320, A321, BA flights using B757 & B767, additional Aeroflot flights on an A320, and a few charter flights on B732, 733, 757 & 767, plus a TU156. (lots of Russians)

w.r.t. AF having 1 flight assured by B733 this summer it is a First and certainly an increase in seat numbers per day. AF usually uses A319, 320 & 321 but I guess that they can't do more than 1 flight every 1/2 hour for this airport pair (more if you add the flights to CDG). I guess it would start confusing passengers if flights were too close to each other.

Quoting Ncelhr (Reply 4):

Of course I meant 773 not 733

Apart from the scheduled widebodies such as Emirates triple7 service to DBX many interesting wide- and narrow bodies can be seen at NCE. In February, during the African summit several government 727s were seen at the biz-jet parking area.
The Bahrain Govt 747SP seems to be a frequent visitor. The picture is from 2005, I saw it at NCE in 2006 as well.
Can anyone recognize the 727 with winglets(sorry about the picutre quality)?

Does Delta still offer non-stop flights to NCE from ATL? Or is that just seasonal?
