Devon/Cornwall

I'd like flights to Plymouth, but they'd need to be twice a day so I could make a 10:00 meeting and then get back home in the evening.

Yes the 6th a/c may not be coming to EMA just yet due to the opening of new bases, but all the routes are going to happen, this is going to be done by other bases helping out, ie DUB will do the lunch time flight while we do BHD ect, so even tho EMA doesn't get the extra a/c parked up at night its still doing to get the same volume of pax.
Let us not forget this time last year we only had two a/c based at EMA

parking

Ryanair have said they are going to be parking planes over the winter months as BAA charge too much at stansted. I guess one or two could be parked at east midlands.

I have to agree wholeheartedly with Readability 5 and his comments regarding MAN involvement in running E.M.A. There are a couple of issues i have regarding expansion etc one.,one being the closure of the Aeropark 10 YEARS and what has happened since -absoulutely nothing.It has been used as a car park ,dumping ground for rubbish but no sign of any attempt to expand any apron on it!!!The other thing that makes me think MAN are not bothered about E.M.A. IS THE FREIGHT BUISNESS .Here we sit with a HUGE freight apron with hardly anything on it and with the airport ideally positioned for road transport(M1/M42/A50) what happens to the new frieght carriers into the U.K. yes you guessed they all went to MANCHESTER!!! AEROFLOT, FEDEX, GREAT WALL OF CHINA &CHINA AIRLINES all into MAN.Now you will all know if you have driven to MAN what a lottery it can be up the M6 and then round to MAN airport so what a great idea to stick a few more hundred juggernauts in the area to pick up and distribute this airbone freight.Ihope this makes sense and if so could somebody please try and explain why you would prefer a already overloaded road system to distribute freight instead of using our nice little
airport in the middle of the countryside.

Ryanair will not be parking it's ex STN a/c at EMA, its only 7a/c from STN, some of these will be sold, like CSS and the others will be moved to the new bases like VLC. And if it was going to park up random a/c Ryanair would pick a nice cheap airport like Doncaster, or PIK. . . .

Why has EMA (website) not added the new Baby routes on it's news section?

Anyone know any new routes, *would like to point out i was the first to say about BHX-MAD, and the new polish routes. But either way well done to Baby adding them, I just you charge enough to make it worth it on the ticket, don't expect to sell much on board.

It does make you wonder why all new freight is going to MAN

Just an observation, The Mytravel flights to Montego Bay in August ran over 2500 passengers averaging 530 pax per week. whats the seat numbers on the Mytravel 767???? also is there any chance of them bringing it back for a second season?

First Choice have dropped Punta Cana for next summer. is there any other Long Haul ops on the charter front penciled in for next summer or next winter??? How is the Goa flights selling????

On the UKIA front, i believe the 2nd B767 will have PTV's and a complete refit and that there have been some enquiries about leasing B767-300ER's and B777-200's. I assume it will be on how the performance goes for the first 12 months.

Regards

First choice long haul 08 at the moment is like this....

Saturday - Puerto Plata (fortnightly)
Sunday - Orlando

Monday - Varadero

From what I have gathered anyway...


Yeah what has happened to Punta Cuna and Cancun, surely they would have been released by now... any other long haul expansion for sum08

Perhaps the reason why the freight operators go to Manchester is that it's where they want to go. It has nothing to do with the airport but everything to do with the operator.

EndBag Post 308

In the above post No. you mention traffic conditions around the motorway network in the vicinity of Manchester Airport, but are not things the same around EMA. I think from memory this year alone BMIBABY on its web site has warned a number of times of the delays in the vicinity of EMA,and the one time I used EMA (although a number of years ago) it took over ONE hour from the airport car park to reach the M1.

But to be frank and straight about it, most airports are situated near motorways and most clog up at some stage of the day.

I dont know about the politics involved in all this new freight traffic coming into Manchester, but could EMA handle 3 or 4 747 freighters at once.

I haven't checked the charts but you could get a couple on the West apron (stands 120/122) & one on the East Apron (Stand 71??) although this does mean the aircraft has to be parked diagionally across two other stands.

No problem during the day when the East & West Aprons are fairly empty, no chance at Night I would have thought

Certainly no chance at night, but because of the airports' differential charging policy designed to encourage more daytime cargo flights, this wouldn't be a problem as there are generally only two or three aircraft parked on the Western apron during the day. I doubt very much if three or four 747s at once would cause too many headaches for the DHL third party handling team.
