I doubt many people know what Ryanair pay the airport, I imagine it's quite a closely guarded secret.
I would be very surprised if EMA ends 2007 with just 5 based Ryanair a/c though, which begs the questions...is there room for more?

Terminal

The improvements to the terminal can not come quick enough.

Picked up a relative on the Rome flight today, landed just after the other Rome flight and had to wait for it to be disembarked first before they could get off the aircraft. Took an age to come through immigration/customs.

This has been floating around for a couple of weeks, as the Penauille part of the name seems to officious and non-aviation related. With all of the rebranding exercises that have been taking place over the last couple of years, I don't know whether Servisair still have the finance to do it, but apparently it's being considered!

Have heard that the new terminal is now no longer on the cards as the original budget of 35-40 million could not be achieved and that it had ballooned to over 80. Little wonder when Manchester get involved they like their gold plating. With all this additional Ryanair traffic the terminal building will be pretty full, especially with the security brought forward to the old Ilkeston Travel shop. It will have to mean very slick security queues or else mayhem in the check in hall.Next summer will be very interesting.

I'm sorry emaint2003, but what do you mean when you say 'new terminal'?

Thanks SAM-EMA

The new terminal mentioned is the building which graced the covers of the proposed masterplan for the airport, a glass-fronted structure which would have been constructed alongside the current terminal. MAG unfortunately were not able to provide the necessary funding to go ahead with this major building work, so instead the airport is making do best with what it has, by adding extensions all over the place (I count; the low-cost airline check-in hall, the new pier and the new shopping mall by arrivals) and a major overhaul of the existing facilities which has been ongoing for a while. The entrance to the security queue will start at the old Ilkeston Co-Op Travel shop (currently being used by the Aviation Hobby Shop but will become Securicor offices) though I believe the provisions are for these to house both the queue to the security checkpoint & central search, so queues shouldn't extend into the check-in hall.

Is it a definate then - about the new terminal being a no-go??

The current one, even with this winter's modifications, must be within sight of maxing out? And if Ryanair should base even more aircraft here in the next 24 months then the place will be without elbow room.

So if no new terminal is planned, what is the alternative, hopefully not a piecemeal collection of tents and corridors and temp structures.

BTW got a ride on the new Thomas Cook A330 G-TCXA back from Cayo Coco Sunday to Manchester. smart interior and better IFE but not as much leg room.

Regards

I know as soon as I type this there'll probably be a major announcement from the airport, but I'm struggling to see what else the airport can reveal for the time being. Ryanair have announced their big base expansion for next summer, the charters' programmes are pretty much released now, the terminal building work has been revealed and last month we saw the launch of the new Skylink Leicester service. I think things are pretty much sown up with the exception of concrete news of the terminal refurbishment, further improving of the public transport to the airport (I've heard the airline shuttle could go 24/7 like the Skylink Nottingham), any handling changes, and the off chance of any new routes, particularly something from easyJet considering their change in contract - though all of these things won't be firmed up until closer to the start of the summer season.

This is yet to be announced, their initial contract with the airport was a five-year contract signed in February 2002 by Go Fly, which was obviously swallowed up by easyJet. Since the merger, EMA has remained exactly the same size at three aircraft, though there has been some changing around of the routes. There are numerous theories circling the airport about what next summer could bring for easyJet. Either, they continue as they have done for the last five years as EMA must be doing something right to keep a steady five aircraft. Or, they could look at expanding the number of aircraft based at the airport as there is something like six aircraft as part of next year's expansion programme which have not yet been assigned a base for expansion. Finally, they could possibly move their operations to another airport in the region willing to accomodate easyJet for a better price.

Yes you're right.
A/C came 10min late due to ATC slot in MAD.

Some good destinations from BHX with WW.

I am surprised that neither WW or EZY brought BCN back to EMA. At one time both carriers operated it. And with WW starting from BHX there is an clear market for it from the Midlands. Maybe baby will add it to EMA in 07?
