It does seem that it is the turn of the LCC revolution at MAN with Oasis, easyJet and AirAsiaX coming.

This will definitely increase PAX numbers but could this spark other airlines into action? With more LCC carriers approaching the airport, could we see a growth from a UK airline?

Anyway, congrats to MAN for a start on the HKG, lets hope the route can become daily and non-stop in the future. Looks like the route came before other airports that I would have thought would defiantely be higher up on the list than MAN such as NYC, OAK, SYD etc. but I suppose mixing two regional airports in the UK and Germany seems a very good starting point. Can't wait to see another red 744 in MAN!

Great news for MAN if Oasis Hong Kong comes off..... any further details available from anyone?

MAN was on "the list" from Oasis Hong Kong but I must admit I thought there were a number of other cities that were lined up for a service before us?!

We have potential flights starting to HKG and KUL, does it really matter who operates them.....

To me ?. Of course it does. While I do travel to both KUL and HKG, I also travel to many onward detinations that are well served by CX and MH. Being stuck on SQ is not exactly the worst thing in the world granted, but it would be nice to have a choice.

I was hoping - vainly I know as we are witnessing MAN slowly morph into a bucket & spade/LCC hub - to see either or both MH and CX (re)start scheduled services, so I could use their respective hubs to travel around the Asia Pacific region, which I currently do an awful lot.

That is fantastic news if Oasis are coming to Manch. I had the pleasure of flying with them last month but the journey does drag on with the connection at LGW! Their Business Class product is excellent value for money!

Can you engage the brain before you post any more

asking too much of you?

Aswell as TOM, ZB, FCA, MYT... The list goes on.

The advert maybe alot like the LS adverts which advertise 'Rome, Geneva, Budapest, Tenerife' from MAN and BLK (whereas only one of these is actually served from BLK.

Could the advert you saw concern other WW bases aswell?

Yes Gleno Jet2 have Faro in their summer 08 schedule as do Monarch, not to mention the multitude of charter flights that will operate on this route in high season.

Odd WW would want to join the party on this route rather than trying to capture a new market from MAN....... still, nothing definite announced as of yet so lets wait and see!

WW

If you look at the gaps in the summer timetable, I think XRY and FAO are unlikely but not entirely impossible. Something closer would be more likely and something which isn't served by another LCC already. I believe we will just have to wait and see. Maybe Friday?

Post 1791??

Seems a bit unfair, when Air Asia have stated that they would like to operate into either Man and Stansted and Oasis have Manchester planned as a destination on their website,according to another PPruner who emailed me yesterday Oasis applied for slots on the 19th JAN to operate on days 124and 6 in 9.10 out 11.50......if this comes off great.

one more thing......you from Liverpool by anychance??

Anybody know where Solo City is? MYT have had a few arrivals from there over the week. I know there is one in Indonesia, but it sounds more like one of these North American skiing destinations e.g. Deer Lake. Anybody got any info?

GLENO : 1791

Its a bit like saying your going to win the lottery
sometime...........but wild conjecture without any
concrete evidence that can be referred to is not
fact its fiction.
Where is the info about these NEW services that
I/We can access ??
If this fiction turns into fact then evidence will
surface........fine.

Plucking services out of the air that YOU would
like an airline to start is fanciful nonesense.

or in terms of this site its the 'silly season'.

Solo City's official name is Surakarta. The city sits on the river Solo in Central Java.
