EMA Bulgaria Flights. RYR. UKIA.

With The Massive Increase In Flights 2 Turkey This Summer. Has There Been Any Increases In Flights To Bulgaria?

Shame That Pegasus Have Not Returned 2 EMA. Do They Just Operate For One Tour Company?

RYR Heard They Are Staying At 6 Based Aircraft 4 S09 Thou Not Confirmed.

UKIA 767 Was Started Up This Week and Heard its Going Back Into the BMI hangar 4 Some More Work. Then Hopefully It Finally Will Be Away. Heard Now Its Going to Ireland.

Anyone Got Any PAX Numbers for the IOM Service Just Wondered How It Was Doing.

Stuart I Notice U Mentioned GCI? Is That Maybe With GR Operating It Or Another Carrier.

Thanks NJTCF.

Ryanair

The rumour of FR staying at six seems to hold some credibility per the
FR booking engine.

I wrote EMA's schedule down when it was released and although I
can't find it now Sundays at times required 8 aircraft. Now it fits 6
plus one additional flight. Monday & Tuesday now fit six as well.

Some of the EMA destinations missing in April or reduced are: -

Alghero, Nimes, Lodz, Rimini, Santiago & Perpignan - None
Rome - daily to four a week
Bratislava - four to two a week
Berlin SXF - Daiy to four a week

I know some of the ones above ceased ages ago but I seem to
remember Lodz, Alghero, Nimes & Rimini operating last summer.

Seems the Midlands is getting nothing in terms of extra aircraft as
bhx is supposed to be staying at 4 although the whole schedule is
a mess, requiring 5 most days but it could easily fit 4.

"nn"s in Don(n)ington

Depends on your age, on how many "n"s in Don(n)ington. There are several mileposts in the locality, originating from the turnpike days; some of which do spell Don(n)ington with the double 'n'. HINT: if you do any internet searches on RAF Donington, always try both spellings as there appeared to be some doubt on the contemporary usage. Modern day acceptance is just the one 'n'. Or you could of course try "Nottingham +derby +leicester +international +castledon +any combination of the lot" for your searches.
I seem to remember that the mileposts on the Trent and Mersey Canal also have the same confusion of spelling.

Just for your info, it was 'Dunitone' in the Doomsday Book of 1086, and a large castle was built in 1260, replacing a smaller motte-and-bailey type.

Another thought

Was the larger castle built due to a increase in passengers? Flights to the Crusades etc.

Great pics.

So how many diverts in total today?

I had a quick count while up Diseworth lane about 16:00 and counted 8 FR on the DHL ramp, plus the BA 777, at least another 6 FR on the central apron, with plenty of WW and a FCA thrown in - vis too poor to see what was on Cargo East.

Any one got any details?

Was interested to hear that some longhaul from US plus middle east diverted to PIK today/ Was EMA full many times today and unable to take more heavies?

I imagine the terminal was teaming with FR pax though.
