Are Thomson going to sell the long haul routes from EMA that First Choice operate????? I havent seen anything on their website and i know First Choice are scaling back there ops by dropping Punta Cana. Will thomson offer there service long haul also or will Mytravel / TCX start long haul from the airport? especially after Mombasa last winter and Jamaica this summer.

Is there anything new with regards to the maintenance area and the access road from the DHL apron to the main apron?

Look out for a summer 2009 service over the pond scheduled.

Regards

Stu

It looked like the FCA 767 was having a go at a direct route to the maintenance this morning, or was it just a bit of grass tracking........

Stu,

East Midlands Flying School closes at the end of November, and work on the new road starts soon after.

I,m afraid it wasnt too good on the Tuesday night UKIA .Idrove the coach from the gate to the a/c and the load was 23 pax!!! 22 for ISB and just ONE for SHJ. Ihope it picks up soon as it would be a shame to lose the operation after all the work that has gone in to getting it started.I have just checked the pax figure for Wednesdays return flight and you will not believe the figures ,there were just SEVEN PAX on the IHOO6 SHJ/ISB-E.M.A

On the subject of Freight, i've noticed that a couple of new flights have begun since the start of "Winter", both are for DHL I think & are operated by an Air Contractors ATR42 & a Bluebird Cargo B737

So hopefully freight will also see a large increase along with the passenger figures

It's difficult to see how UKIA selling tickets through just a few travel agents can ever generate enough bookings to sustain the service, I hope it succeeds but without more publicity it has to be doubtful.

A online booking system would help then anyone can book flights with them over the interenet. just selling flights in travel agents wont get many pax, all other airlines have online booking sytems.

The ACL ATR42 operates CGN-EMA-CGN with the BBD 737 ARN-EMA-GOT-ARN. These were 757 flights with the 757's displaced mainly to flying ex BRU

757 flights have increased from LEJ so likely overall the frieght figures will have increased

Anyone know where they are parking them, as I imagine there is not a lot of available space.

I imagen that the fog might have atleast lifted by 1.40am, but thats the last passenger flight in till the morning, so they will most likely put a few on the main apron as
a thomson has gone now that its summer, so there is one new space avaliable...

sometimes they just put them on the cargo aprons, though as it is the evening im not sure


at the moment there has been around 15 divertions, i really cant imagen where they will put 15 planes at the moment

I did hear they were planning on that anyway, adding a further 2 stands to the western apron as they will be opening that up full time for next summer, however those stands will never be done by that time unless they start quite soon...


it would be nice for extra money to be spent on new check-in desks and new check-in hall and possibly a bigger shop variety in the terminal.. i know there is a shortage of check-in desks at the moment...

Well it's going to be very tight for ramp space at the moment!! Currently there are Flybe 145s on stands 15, 17, 71, 72 poss 25 (couldn't see it!) and a 190 on stand 7.the HLX came and went again, same as a BE DH8. Just as I left a FR arrived on stand 45 divert from DUB. Thats atleast 5 stands out of action as the Flybe ac are night stopping. Going to be interesting overnight and in the morning!

Not wishing to be funny, but why should the airport be interested in building a brand new check-in hall, when the current uber-lords are Ryanair? Low-cost airlines are encouraging pax to bring fewer items of luggage, check-in online and bypass expensive terminals. It's why there's been so much resistance to new terminals in the past being built at LTN and STN, low-cost carriers simply won't pay for it. Obviously, for an airport the size of EMA, it has meant a lot of unsightly chopping and changing to the terminal, plus lots of cheap add-ons. Also now with larger a/c, the situation with boarding/disembarking from the front stands is really adding to turnaround times. Ideally, we'd have a new terminal, great ramp layout etc. but it's not going to happen if airlines aren't willing to invest, which as a predominantly LCC and charter airport, the users of EMA won't.

I can't quite get excited about diverts, hopefully my plane will be parked somewhere reachable tomorrow and I'll get on it!

Flyboy - Sunday is extremely quiet with regards freight. There won't be any parking problems.
