Think Skyeurope Salzburg flights simply not released yet.
Winter timetable sees Bratislavia inbound arrive at MAN at 12.20 and outbound leave at 19.00 on Weds and Sats. Cant see aircraft being parked up all that time.
Thomsonfly launching 'frequent' Salzburg flights this winter so maybe they are seeing how they perform before commiting themselves. Rotation could always be used for another destination.

online check in cannot be used for *any* longhaul flight that BD operates and will not work if tried. What lexxity was infact talking about andybsei was the Night Before Check in that is offered for all BD longhaul flights only that is open between 7pm and 9pm at Terminal 3 Check in desk number 23 every evening.

I know this probably has absolutely NOTHING to do with me, BUT I did email them a few months back suggesting this one

Regards

At the risk of re-opening old wounds, and offending the sensibilities of Speke fans, it is claimed that Easyjet have applied for slots for MXP-MAN-MXP; MAN-GVA-MAN and BSL-MAN-BSL. Seems plausible - EasySwiss operate such flights to a number of UK airports (as destinations, not bases), and Milan would make sense as Alitalia are the only competition (and expensive with it I am told). We shall see......

BA Connect also offer MAN-MXP, with prices that also require a re-mortgage, so EZY would be very welcome.

Yes and no - last time it appeared that they were looking at setting up a base to some extent; this time they are looking at MAN just as a destination. Doubtless if they happen, the performance of these routes will dictate how EZY at MAN pans out in the future, but this seems like a sensible way of doing it if they can get decent slots.

Slight thread drift here.

Taken from the article.

"In fact the reverse is true. Outbound tourism from Manchester costs the region millions of pounds in income exported to Spain, the USA and other destinations, unmatched by visitors to Manchester.

"Cheap flights cost our leisure industry millions as it's cheaper to fly abroad than take a taxi into the city centre."
So basically we should all stay at home and spend on stuff we alread have or have seen. And if taxis are so expensive who's fault is that!?

Idiot.....

Sorry, carry on.

Going a bit further on lexxy's point in the article:

Outbound tourism from Manchester costs the region millions of pounds in income exported to Spain, the USA and other destinations, unmatched by visitors to Manchester.
So they don't want the ex-pats from the region to come back either. Yes we are inbound visitors.

Time someone counted the numbers, correctly, of ex-pat paxs who return home from Manchester, after being fleeced in the North West's shops, catering establishments, pubs and taxis.

What a load of tosh!

AZ is no longer bookable from the start of the winter season. The plane is off somewhere more profitable.

How many times has AZ started and stopped this service over years? At least four times that I know of!!
However it May have something to do with a possible slot application by Easyjet, MXP-MAN-MXP. 2 x daily I hear!
Let the doubtings begin !!!

if AZ cannot make this work its pretty bad news.....following MAS BWIA Portugalia and Estonian !

If Manchester had retained these lost services plus all the others it would be like LHR by now !

How do you know it is the Airport's fault and not the airline's faults for selecting routes or aircraft which cannot break even.

Now that GB Airways Manchester flights come under the BA Connect 'banner' the TFS flight which operates daily all the year round at more or less the same time 1555hrs(I know its in the morning on Weds) has been upgraded in the Winter06 timetable.
Two flights per day on Tue, Thu & Fri at 0710hrs and 1755hrs (gets back at some ridiculous hour like 0330!)Mon & Wed departs at 1500hrs, Sat at 1310hrs and Sun at 1730hrs.All flights with on a A321.
Gives plenty of choice of departure times, increase in number of flights and larger aircraft.
