Annual passenger figures

It's the end of February. The December passenger numbers, which include the annual summary, have yet to be published. The monthly figures are usually published early if good, late if bad. This exceptional delay suggests that they an embarrassment to the often bullish airport management - are they?

Well the January stats have been published.

Pax this month 45,854 (-0.9%)

Rolling Year 695,200 (-0.9%)

From these stats it must be deduced that the 2012 annual stats are not a disaster.

After a year of mixed fortunes for the Island's Airport and air service network, passenger numbers through Isle of Man Airport in 2012 reduced slightly over the 2011 level. The Airport handled 705,993 passengers over the year, about 5,000 passengers lower than 2011 - a drop of 0.68%. December traffic was up – by just 0.5% – with just under 59,000 passing through the terminal, ending 2012 on a slightly positive note.

The faltering UK and European economies have again taken their toll on what was anticipated to be a slight improvement to passenger figures for 2012. Of the 21 routes operated during the year, two thirds saw decreases in passengers with some having a significant impact on the year end figure. The Southampton route, which was withdrawn last February, contributed the biggest decrease of over 12,500 passengers, whilst the short suspension of the London City route during April and May, before British Airways recommenced it, added nearly 8,000 passengers to the deficit. The Flybe Luton route has sharply declined by 25% and added a further reduction of over 6,500 passengers in 2012, whilst their Birmingham route saw a 5.6% decline with 2,500 fewer passengers.

Meanwhile there have been notable improvements to key routes from the Island. The Flybe Gatwick service picked up some of the London City traffic in April and May and, with the addition of easyJet, the route overall has also ended the year with a flourish, increasing passenger numbers by 16,100 or 12.7%. Liverpool, also operated by Flybe and easyJet, increased by 8,000 passengers – nearly 5% - and the new Citywing Oxford route and Loganair’s summer service to Norwich added 5,500 passengers between them.

Ann Reynolds, Airport Director, admitted that 2012 had been a challenge for the Airport and its operators. “The double-dip recession has hit the aviation industry in the UK and Europe very hard in 2012 as it has knocked the confidence out of the already depressed leisure and business air travel markets. People were expecting to have some money in their pockets to take the trips they have been putting off for the last couple of years, and it just hasn’t been possible for most people,” she said. “The result was a promising start to 2012 but declining from April. The last two or three months have shown more promise, but primarily in the major markets of London and the North West. Other regional routes continue to have a tough time, and there is little sign of an underlying improvement yet.”



This is underlined by the recent news of the withdrawal of the Jersey service by Blue Islands and the decision by Citywing (previously Manx2.com) to suspend its Oxford and Leeds services from early January. Flybe has also decided to suspend, until March, its Luton service.

During December, the North West and South East regions continued to set the pace with the NW up by over 1,100 passengers fuelled by an increase in frequency by easyJet on the Liverpool route giving them a rise in passengers of almost 50%. The SE and London routes rose by over 3000 passengers, following the introduction of the easyJet Gatwick service in October, and Flybe maintaining a solid 9,000 passengers on the route. This has resulted in an increase of over 30% on Gatwick over the last quarter and London traffic overall rising by 20% with over 10,000 additional passengers using London air services to and from the Island over the three month period.

I am not privy to any such rumours, but there are a couple of aspects which might make this attractive to EZY right now. Firstly, and against the odds at present, BE are growing MAN month on month. OK, it's not back to where it was 4 or 5 years ago, but it is steadily recovering numbers.

Secondly, an perhaps more significantly, the Tynwald Select Committee reviewing Open Skies is due to report very soon. It would make sense for EZY to get a foothold on any future potential routes now, just in case the Committee make recommendations which might re-introduce licensing for new operators, in the future.

Isn't it rather short notice for any MAN-IOM service to start in May, especially as there's no leeway for them to operate it as a MAN based aircraft given the amount of rejigging they had to do to boost MAN-CPH

they could always do LPL-IOM-MAN-IOM-LPL.

With 40 minute sectors its not that hard to fit in.

Their LGW route diluted the LPL numbers so a MAN service would likely dilute them to the point where neither could be worth doing.

Besides, if they saw Flybe off the Island, which a MAN would probably do, then what use would a once a day service be for business traffic? With only LCY available for any day returns, then we could see a return to a Fishing/Farming only economy, mass unemployment as the Banks decamp and house prices tumbling.....

Careful what you wish for folks, the Island simply cannot sustain both operators long term and either you get frequency and business links OR once a day flights, and prices steadily rising back to what BE charge.

Can't have it both ways!

Fog? Crosswinds over 24kts? That'll be NO flights a day then.

And if EZ have the Island to themselves, I wonder just how long they'll accept paying any landing fees at all......That's not a Loco weakness either.

If the Airport is losing money now, how much will it cost to service three daily A319s paying nothing to land?

Enjoy the choice this summer. Doubt we'll have it this good much longer.

I think the EZY cancellations during the January snow showed what the future holds if they manage to push Flybe of the Island.

You would like to think that the Airport Directress is bright enough to see this and act accordingly.

I havent flow with EZY from the Island for 2 years, quiet simply because the flight times are crap and the cost of the extra overnight stays is more that the fare difference.

The BA service to LCY hasnt been too reliable in the mornings recently either from what I have seen.
