CAA stats show EMA total pax up 2.4% for the year to December 2011 at 4,208,402.

I would imagine 2012 would be a much better year for EMA. Ryanair, bmibaby (provided it stays open) and Jet2 all have more routes this year.

To put this into context this is less than in 2004! What has all that wonderful Manchester Management been doing for 8 years?

There are busy times and dead times at EMA but there seems to be a shortage of overnight parking, could EMA handle another 10 night stopping aircraft for example?

A330 or 777 would cause mayhem in arrivals that already sees people standing outside if 2 or 3 737's turn up at the same time, it will need m's to be spent to grow but I'm sure there's the market out there, but the rub is it would rob MAN

Not all doom and gloom...

Ryanair will further add an extra weekly AGP on a Wed Evening, (now totalling 11 weekly) as well as an extra weekly VLC on a Sat afternoon.

With the schedules at EMA being dominated by LoCo's, whose customer base is overwhelmingly leisure, EMA has done well to be reporting increases at all!

The other airports mentioned with higher growth have a very evident business mix in their passenger profiles.

EMA should still work hard to attract a couple of the legacy airlines to establish minimum 3x daily links to AMS or CDG or FRA - I know BD have the flight, but it does not have an LH code on it, therefore LH do not market the link to its hub and global network.

I genuinely believe with its large asian population, the East Midlands area could be of interest to the likes of QR or EY - they are hugely competitve with EK, who are present at BHX and MAN.

A major factor for QR or EY would be facilites though - there is not a chance in hell that they would even consider a terminal which risks its pax queuing in the rain!!

They would want space to install a private lounge etc.

So it is not only ramp space that hinders EMA - but a terminal buildin that is seriously flawed in its design and complete "unexpandability"

Well considering the facts, Lufthansa own bmi... there is available connections through Frankfurt, it just isn't shown on the airports fairly naff departure board that they are available. The number of connections has grown considerably with the introduction of Frankfurt, flights I'd have said are at least half full on most sectors, which for any bmi regional flight is good.

KLM still has available slots and flight allocations for EMA-AMS which it operated well over 20 years ago, so the possibility still lies, but the fact it is starting to reduce its UK connections, e.g. dropping LPL, reduces the likelihood of them coming to EMA, but at the same time, could be a possibility with spare aircraft sitting around. Generally Cityhopper routes aren't use for passengers travelling to KLM alone, with the majority of passengers using it as a connecting service, which is now more widely available through lufthansa. With IAG taking bmi, whether this continues is yet to be seen, but KLM may take the chance if it becomes available if Lufthansa do not carry the routes on.

The likes of EY, QR and EK will not come to EMA at least within the next 5 years, as the terminal facilities, apron space and general handling isn't upto scratch. They will require prime check-in desks, boarding gates, stands the lot, and the airport cannot accommodate these to them as they are too focused on WW and LS to care.

In terms of this summer coming, the number of flights looks very healthy, well over 30 flights a week to ALC, AGP and PMI, the question will be how will the airport accommodate 3 TOM, 2 TCX, 8 WW, 7 FR, 3 LS, 2 BD and 1 T3 every morning without using the UPS apron, something will have to give, or WW will just have to park aircraft down at the hangar until first wave has gone, as some of their flights leave around 8am.

Jet2's 737 will be parked on the 40s, and a few of ryanairs will be pushed out to the 30s even more.

Ryanairs will be on the 30's regardless, waste of time putting the LS on the 40's, they need them for the charters, i'm guessing the use of stand 4/5, as its also a late departure for the 733s.

Good luck to the FR's going ontime if they are on the 20's!!

And the plan while the maintenance is being carried out?

Stands 4 and 5 can't cope with a 75 or 738.

Start again.

As I said, UPS. There was one morning last year where we had two TOM and a TCX down there first wave, not ideal, but its the best they can do.

FRA - I know BD have the flight, but it does not have an LH code on it
I think the BD FRA flights are code-shared as LH6524 - LH6529 although they are not publicised at the airports.

Similar situation arises in reverse at BHX/FRA where the LH FRA/BHX flights do not appear on the boards/airport websites under their BD codeshare.

January pax down 4% & Route Analysis

Passenger figures: CAA

EMA was down 4% at 179786 below the 2003 figure similar to BHX/MAN.

I thought I would gave a go at looking at the average pax per flight and load factor. However I have to rely on libhomeradar 100% for number of sectors, which can be hard work due to duplicates and similar entries.

For BMI Baby I have used 140 as the average seats available as they have the 500's based as well.

Brussels - 1085 - 16 per flight 42%

Paris CDG - 5620 - 72 pax - 51%

Chambery - 1817 ????

Dinard - 2230 - 101 pax - 54%

Limoges - 2685 - 112 pax - 59%

Berlin SXF - 4854 - 121 pax - 64%

Cologne - 1744 - 51 pax - 37%

Frankfurt - 21 pax - 43%

Dublin - 13204 - 106 - 56%

Knock - 1740 - 75 pax - 39%

Bergamo - 2144 - 119 pax - 63%

Venice TSF - 2897 - 111 pax - 59%

Amsterdam - 6695 - 66 pax - 47%

Faro - 140 pax - 76%

Alicante - 6389 - 139 pax - 81%

Malaga - 4703 - 138 pax - 79%

Arrecife - 3013 - 151 pax - 80%

Fuerteventa - 2688 - 134 pax - 71%

Las Palmas - 1095 - 55 pax - 29%??????????????? very low wrong figures??

Tenerife - 6820 - 163 pax - 80%

Geneva - 2133 - 119 pax - 80%

Edinburgh 7854 - 70 pax - 50%

Glasgow 7531 - 82 pax - 58%

Jersey 1647 - 82 pax - 59%

Not all the routes shown as some were just a few flights or joint with other
airlines such as BHD.

FR have been struggling to fill LPA, not just at EMA, but the likes of LPL and BRS as well.
