Good to see this new destination, although we were supposed to have it this winter with Hamburg Airlines via Banjul untill they went to the wall.Will Thomsons take on the Banjul portion of the trip as well, as it seemed to be sadly missed this winter and i can't believe no one stepped in to take up this capacity as it has traditionally sold well from Bristol since it was introduced some years ago incidently inaugerated by Thomsons( ok first choice,but all the same now) so kill two birds with one stone by introducing a new route and bringing back an old popular favourite.

Maybe the Cape Verde and Gambia Experience will use some of the TOM 757 space to help fill it up and make the destination viable?
Cape Verde Experience are selling the BRS flight - seem to be selling all TOM UK-Cape Verde flights

Cape Verde Experience told me a couple of days ago they had dropped BRS " Due to the failure of Hamburg Airlines". Oh well.....

The Weston paper article published a few days ago and linked below focuses on developments at BRS.

New jobs and flight routes as airport growth starts - News - Weston Mercury

The paper says that construction of the 250-bed hotel will begin this year with a well-known international brand yet to be chosen.

An airport spokesman is reported as saying that background work for the proposed 150 million expansion will take place over the coming months with key components of the development now being prioritised; aircraft stands, extensions to the terminal and improved car parking are first on the list.

In the past the airport has said the expansion will be built incrementally as traffic increases, so presumably this time scale still remains.

New Monarch Base - Summer 2012 ?

Taken from Travel Weekly :

Global 2011: Monarch considers increase to regional flying

Mar 07, 2011 11:00
The Monarch Travel Group is considering adding more regional flying from 2012.

Speaking at the Global Travel Group conference in Leicester this morning, Hugh Morgan, managing director of Monarch Travel Group tour operations division, said the group was currently considering an increase in regional flying.

He said the group was looking at basing aircraft in Bristol, East Midlands and Newcastle airports.

"It is a big investment but we can't utilise a foreign carrier as people don't necessarily support it. We would have to base aircraft at the airports.

"I think we will be doing a lot more regional flying from next year."

He said a decision would be made "very soon" once the company had evaluated all the logistics involved.

The group has previously received criticism from agents for failing to do enough regional flying.

Morgan said it was a 'chicken and egg' situation. "If you're going to do it, you have to do it properly," he added.

Would be great to see a Monarch base at BRS, plenty of capacity going since demise of XL and then Viking and its assosicated tour operators, fingers crossed. Hopefully we would be more up the list than EMA due to the MON base at BHX, and hopefully NCL too due to JET2 flights and holidays operating there as well as TUI and TCX, time will tell i guess but Bristol could do with an alternative in the charter market to TUI and TCX

Provisional CAA Stats

Latest stats from CAA show Bristol handled 344,771 pax in February 2011 which is down 5.7% on February 2010

These figures are a bit misleading as the two Belfast Airports have not reported yet, so I estimate around another 22,000 pax to be added to this figure which I would think will just take it back into positive territory!

Provisional CAA Stats

Andrew 1968

I don't think it works like that.
Surely the CAA simply looks at Bristol's reported figures and they will include the Belfast passengers?

CAA Stats - Provisional

When looking at the CAA Domestic Routes, Belfast City & Belfast International have not reported figures yet.

In addition to this looking at Bristol, neither Belfast airports are included in the list of airports served, therefore these are not currently included.

As with all CAA stats they are provisional not the final audited figures, therefore I will check again next Monday for the next update as I would expect them to report by then! I will update you accordingly!

I have just checked the report again, they are not included in the reported figures!

Take a look at the results yourself!

Ah yes, sorry, I see what you mean now, the Belfasts's have no numbers at all.
If you are right and it certainly looks that way, it seems Birmingham can add in about 23,000 extra passengers for the Belfasts, nice.

Afraid you are incorrect.

The airport stats are not the total of the domestic and international routes but will be reported direct by each airport.

If you add the international and domestic numbers they total 329528 so the difference will be the Belfast routes not currently listed.

The CAA have a peculiar way of reporting the domestic stats based on alphabetical order and if the airport first alphabetically has not reported the figures are left blank. This is why the Aberdeen stats are listed for Belfast but none else.

I thought that Stats reporting was provided to the CAA by each individual airport? So therefore, shouldn't the Belfast stats be included on this report already, as quite often my airport rings up our ground handlers, asking them to provide figures if the airline has not provided them beforehand. I shall ask and report back!

That Is indeed very true! Confirmed to myself by a Captain and it is more than likely that because Rome FCO is also a base for EZY, it will be an FCO based aircraft operating the route, so FCO-BRS-FCO

Hmm, so I was right after all.
I'm too easily persuaded.

Hurrah

At last I can stop flying to the very very very poor excuse for an international airport that is CIA, the only airport in the world, that I know of, that after landing and switching to the ground freq, you actually tell the alleged ground controller what your allocated stand is !!!!

Great

Some of the summer schedules kicked off at Bristol on Sunday. I noted:-

4 x ALC (2xFR, 2xEZY)
4 x AGP (2xEZY, 1xFR, 1xTOM)

Pretty sure there were also Multiple FAO and PMI services as well.

Bring it on........
