Prague seems to be drying up all over the place. Perhaps the stag parties have drunk all the beer available and are looking elsewhere.

Baby and Walkway

Baby - I can hear all the 'I told you so' already.

Walkway - I've just had a look at the poor quality plans on the council website. From what I can see EMA got approval for a walkway a couple of years ago, but this strangly seemed to end just before domestic arrivals, and I can't tell what happened after that! The latest plans are to extend this to dump passengers at the international arrivals 'hall'.

There is still complete segregation of arriving passengers from those departing. There is a covered walkway by the east side of the satellite pier plus a single entrance from the west side. There are some alterations at the satellite entrance to make room for stairs and escalator to get passengers to first floor level. The existing elevated walkway is then partitioned with arriving passengers on the apron side, with the original extension then continuing at high level in front of the departure hall. This extension has two access towers. The new extension then continues, ending in a slow descent to the front of arrivals. There is also a further access pier just before the end of the walkway.

At least people will stay dry queuing at border control!

That will be British Airways City Flyer (not BA Mainline), and their shiny new EMBs which are normally based at LCY then. Nice kit.

Who are the charters for?

Flybe Check-in facilities

Hi all, does anyone know what the setup is for check-in for the flybe BHD route? No online check-in is available, therefore airport check-in only, do they have self check-in facilities? Nice to see an increase to 3x daily, must be working out despite WW ops to BHD too

Thanks

Owen

Yes, as already stated, BA CityFlyer will be operating a limited number of charters to Naples on behalf of Omega Holidays. Similar flights will take place from DSA, HUY among other UK airports over the summer.

Talking Hub Flights

Email from Pennie Hemsley:

Re instating a hub service here at EMA is a priority for the aviation team and they are talking to various airlines to ensure this is a service we can offer our customers in the near future.

Just an update on FR's car, he or she appears to have washed it, couldn't see much more as the breaking up and spares recovery of the 767 is still carrying on and it was blocking my view

So a 767 Update instead ( taken on the 16th )

Wash bay cannot really go elsewhere as it has special drain filtering in place I believe.

jet 2 flying to ibiza apparently to brad miller in the summer?
“Jet2 will increase the number of flights it offers and will begin flying to Ibizia in the summer,” he said.
Also wants to increase passenger numbers up 1.5 - 2.0% and create more destinations.
