They're not building a third platform for nowt you know!  Wink

In fact just thinking about it, when TPE start MAN-Glasgow Central services maybe somebody can have a race (a la Top Gear) from Manchester Airport to a destination in Glasgow City Centre; one by plane and isn't allowed to use any form of train, one by train and not allowed to use any form of plane. Oh and the individuals involved have to take a suitcase each with them.

They even use a Manchester United logo on their website! Cheeky, bet they don't have permission!

Was announced at a meeting with the airport recently apparently. They have seemingly sorted out their issues it would appear.




On another note, looks like the FI servics have changed their timings?

From today's MEN



Region sees air passengers soar

15/11/2007

THE number of passengers using airports in the North West has increased by 157 per cent in the last 16 years, it has been revealed.

Manchester airport enjoyed the biggest rise in the region with passenger figures up from 10.1 million to 22.1 million, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) statistics showed.

Nationally, the number of passengers using UK regional airports has exceeded the 100 million a year mark for the first time, it said.

The figure was achieved despite growth at regional airports of just 4pc in 2006 compared with 9pc and 11pc in 2003 and 2005.

The regional growth last year was still greater than at the main London airports, which increased only 2.5pc in 2006.

CAA group economic regulation director Harry Bush said: "Regional airports have continued to develop new services rapidly and have put themselves firmly on the map as gateways for travel to and from the regions they serve.

"There are connections to business as well as leisure destinations in Europe and further afield - including services to hub airports in Europe, the USA and Middle East - which allow numerous onward connections."

Terminal Passengers - 1995608 (-0.6). Cumulative total - 21887313 (-0.7)

Interestingly as a comparative the Liverpool figures are:

Movements - 3766 (-5.5). Cumulative -45826 (-6.5)
Terminal Passengers - 458946 (-0.4). Cumulative (5426314 (+10.5)

LS look set to reduce their based aircraft by 3 for next summer, with an inevitable reduction in services. Unlikely we will see AMS, PRG, BGY, BCN, SXF or TLS back next summer.


Seems they are to concentrate on LBA and BFS.

So with GB and LS airraft going, that's 5 extra spaces at MAN next summer for EZY!

LH looking to expand at MAN (and others)?

http://www.manchestereveningnews.co..../s/1024945_lufthansa_eyes_ba_slots

GERMANY'S national carrier Lufthansa is targeting Manchester and other regional airports for major growth after British Airways' near withdrawal.

The sale of BA Connect this year to Flybe and more recently GB Airways to easyJet leaves BA with just three destinations from Manchester - Heathrow, Gatwick and New York.

Marianne Sammann, Lufthansa's general manager for the UK, said: "We are seeing strong growth out of Manchester, business travel is going well. Manchester became a big opportunity for us when BA decided to abandon the regions."

Well to be fair, LH are doing well in the UK with their long haul services on price - and thats not just a UK regional thing. My company has been heavily involved in a few major projects in India. We have staff in London and Manchester who have been going out there regularly, including myself. Everyone flies LH to DEL, including those like me that are London based, as LH business class is frequently cheaper than BA or VS premium economy and the connection through MUC is so quick and seamless that it becomes a no-brainer, when we have to keep costs sensible. So it doesn't matter whether it is MAN or LHR, LH is the better option (providing you get the new rather than the old long haul business product  Wink )

I'm not aware that SIA are changing any of their LHR flights to 777s, but BA have changed a LHR-SIN flight from a 744 to a 777 - perhaps that was where the rumour came from or was regarding.

AMS, PRG and BCN all have other carriers on these routes, and MXP with BE will replace BGY, so I wouldn't see that as a big loss but it does reduce consumer choice (KL and ZB will have a monopoly on AMS and BCN respectively). Out of interest, how many aircraft will this leave MAN with from the LS fleet and what quantities of 733 and 752 in particular?

Totally agree with you regarding EZY, the opportunities are there but whether they take them up is another thing.

Also heard today that the TCX/MYT merger looks set to reduce the combined based aircraft mext summer by 3, so along with LS and XLA that's even more space at MAN this coming year! Oh dear!

Heard rumours today from a reliable source that WW are looking to expand to possibly a firther 5 new routes in 2008...would be good if it happens.

Mrs Shamu had the pleasure of showing someone around the 4th and 9th floor today from ey up in LS. He was very tight lipped, but from what was hinted, Jet2 are far from retrenching away from MAN, but readjusting to what they see are "more suitable" markets and opportunities ex-MAN. He did say the probability of Easy landing at MAN were a worry for all lo-cos currently operating there. The biggest thing he gave away though, was that the 73s were not the right aircraft at MAN for the missions they're planning to operate.

Can I see a long haul Jet2 about to be launched from MAN, similar to the Zoom model ??

WW aircraft and bases have not been decided for summer 08 as yet. From the sources I have, bmibaby management were at MAN a few weeks ago to discuss with MANplc the launch of Polish routes as well as new Spanish routes for summer 08.

I'm not holding my breath, but with the current root to branch review of the bmibaby business model we can be expecting some big changes with the bmibaby set up come summer 08!

Royal Brunei To MAN.... if.... maybe...

http://www.brudirect.com/DailyInfo/N...ws/Archive/Nov07/241107/nite02.htm

From now on, Royal Brunei Airlines could mount daily services on routes between BSB and London without any restrictions on aircraft type and seat capacity with the end of the previous arrangement.

RBA could also enjoy the privilege to mount four services per week on routes to Manchester if decided at a later date.

The signing of this new air services agreement is continuing development of the excellent bilateral relationship between both countries. Its significance is in its role improving the flow of passengers, goods, services and investment


Though there maybe need to be more than this many pax to justify a service.

According to Brunei Tourism, the latest tourism figures of holiday visitor arrivals from January to August 2007 recorded 3,459 European visitors in total.

Could Bandar/Brunei become a transit stop/stopover destination to Australia, etc, to offer something rather different to the big city experience of SIN and KUL and maybe HKG? But, having said that, it's not as if they really need the money generated by tourists.

I take it this will be from MAN?

Also will the 757s used be from the current fleet (and replace some 757 short-hauls with 737s) or will more 757s be sourced?

B727 flying a golf charter for the British Open Golf in July 2008. Rare to see a 727 over here these days.

http://qconline.com/archives/qco/display.php?id=364200

The 65-passenger first-class 727 Exec-Jet will leave Quad City International Airport a few hours after the conclusion of the JDC and fly directly to Manchester, England. There, ground transportation is scheduled to take the players and their caddies to Royal Birkdale in Lancashire, site of the 2008 Open Championship.

It's not a matter of not liking competition. Some routes don't have the quantity of traffic in order to sustain two very different business models - full fare business travel and the low fare model. Some routes do, which is why you will find that there is direct competition between the two carriers on other routes (and not just with BE, look at Aberdeen to Norwich and Aberdeen to Stavanger).

I do recall another airline that dropped/reduced/franchised routes from MAN for similar reasons of low fare competition, weren't they called British Airways?

Christmas holidays. I suspect all the normal holiday aircraft are fully committed for those two weeks and hence AEA who will no doubt be running less scheduled services have capacity spare. Of course for the rest of the winter many of the usual aircraft will be parked up doing nothing half the time!

How do I find out which runways are beimg used? I want to take some pictures of aircraft landing on the 5's, but I never know when to go.

So you think they will keep MAN-INV?

I guess it depends on which category the route falls into

No chance. They haven't got anywhere near the same exposure and they charge more, so when faced with a twice daily BE Q400, eastern's little J41s will empty almost overnight.

It's all good for me. I'm half planning a trip to Stornoway next year, and doing it affordably was involving a drive to Newcastle, a megabus direct to Inverness, overnight, then a BA flight from Inverness to Stornoway. Now I'll just fly on BE.

a) Lick finger
b) Stick in air
c) Judge whether wind coming from North or East
d) Position ones ass accordingly!
