Quite so. No profit and eventually no Airport.
EMA will likely make little money from their resident airlines (don't know about the freight side), so the money has to come, like it or not, from the 'punters' as you put it.
AFAIK there are bus services that run to and from EMA, if you dont want to pay for parking.

Why do we not get another airline to replace TUI, checked Thomas Cook for next year no flights for Florida or Mexico, come on we have only had ONE flight each week to Florida and Mexico which has just about been packed each flight, personally i think that is disgusting, who is supposed to get attract NEW airlines, or do they just sit in their Ivory Towers

If the airlines don't actually want to fly from your airport there isn't a lot the management can do.

As PDX says, nobody can force an airline to operate from an airport, they can however market their airport, and this may just be the crux of the matter.

MAG are pouring millions into upgrading and improving Manchester (see the Manchester thread if you want to see what's being built) and it isn't beyond the realms of possibility that MAG's policy is to put their marketing efforts into bringing new / increased business to Manchester, and EMA, which really has got very little new investment in passengers facilities in recent times, the focus of cargo growth and development. I hope that isn't the case, but when you look at it, EMA is far too close to BHX to be able to attract the legacy carriers to offer connections to principal European and Middle East hubs, and given the failure of BHX to hold on to any of it's scheduled transatlantic services, EMA is even less likely to be able to do so.

EMA may have to be satisfied with organic, rather than meteoric growth, and to be a passenger airport that serves the bucket and spade brigade primarily, but be a global hub for cargo. And there's nothing to be ashamed of in that!

Had a few more decent links then too I.e. Paris and that ilk with WW and EZY.

Be interesting going forward as to what happens with Flybe under Virgin and the Scottish routes and AMS and of course the loss of the Long Haul next summer.

Too late for me. Recently dropped my family off in the rapid drop off area for which the whole process took three minutes maximum. Various issues with getting out of the car park all out of my control and ultimately cost me 15 before they would raise the barrier for me to get out. Despite numerous protestations to the airport since they have showed no compassion to my plight and refused to refund a single penny. Another customer lost for this airport

June 2019 passenger figures

CAA provisional stats show EMA down 5 % at 535,880 compared to June 18

What are the significant differences in pax ops and routes this year compared to last? anyone any indication what's behind these numbers?

Bad news for East Midlands as it represents another capacity reduction on scheduled services, and Flybe is also dropping EMA-JER which means the airport will be without a link to the island that has been operated almost since day one. The changes leave Flybe with just Amsterdam and Belfast after the end of October as far as I can tell. It is sad to see GLA drop to a twice daily ERJ-145 when in the good old days BD did it three times a day with a 105-seat DC-9-30 / 100-seat Fokker 100.

??

It's a capacity increase on EDI - 2 x 78 presently = 156 and 4 x 49 = 196.

GLA goes up to three a day from early next year so just about steady on capacity but on both routes, there is a big improvement to flight timings.

It was predicable really with Flybe likely preparing to link into Virgin's plans.

Luckily for EMA Loganair have stepped up to cover BMI and these routes, talking about the previous links to Edinburgh and Glasgow at one point didn't you have Easyjet/Go with 319's/733's and Baby with 737's? Sure I flew both at one point up there.

Assume Belfast and Amsterdam will cease with flybe too in the coming months, will be intriguing to see if Loganair further expand at EMA or maybe Aurigny or Jet2 can pick up Jersey? Loganair to BFS and would be nice to see if KLM come be enticed to AMS with better flight time options and at least 2 x daily.

Its a capacity reduction when also taking account of no more Jerseys (whether the increase on GLA takes place remains to be seen - no third flight on the Loganair website for early 2020 yet). And the GLA timings are hopeless for anyone needing to fly northbound on a weekday morning (albeit a 10 minute improvement over the current BEE schedule).
