Hi

Looks like Easyjet must have been happy with the passenger firgures on the LBA to Geneva route which only commenced this winter.

The route has now gone on sale for next winter 2011/12 season. Flights will again be operated 5x weekly on Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sundays

Does the easyJet flight have a lot of seats sold by travel agents/package operators? Or is this route one that stands purely on it's own?

If any tour operators have seats on it, they will be few.

Hi

Yet more bad news to report.

It now looks like Holidays4u has dropped its summer charter flights to Bodrum and Dalaman. Holidays and flights are no longer bookable on its website and all mention of H4U has also been removed from LBIA's own website.

Both services were to be operated once weekly by Turkish Airline Onur Air.

The Thomson web site seems to be well out of date with some services but if you go onto First Choice Holidays web site only Tenerife is bookable next winter not Sharm unfortunatly

Robinhood airport get road link approval!!!

Just read the following link, it explains everything

Cant say that i am over the moon about this, as Leeds/Bradford need some serious money spending on surface access...
Come On LBA and LCC action needs to be taken, Get your request in for some Government funding and or European funding.

South Yorkshire always seem to get what they ask for!!!!

Thousands of jobs and 1.7bn investment as airport link road gets go-ahead - Business - The Star

The article says they will be recieving 18 million from the regional growth fund. I cant see that being enough to build it. It was estimated to cost over 100 million not long ago.

What did the councils do with the money they got from the sale of the airport? They should be ashamed of them selves that thay didn't invest some in improving the dreadful road access to the airport. Sounds like time to write to a councellor or two.

(I am sure the money went on the Leeds Arena sceme!!!!)

In total the doncaster airport region will receieve 1.7 billion pounds, plus whatever they can get from European funding....I doubt that Peel holding actually bought the airport, i think it was given to them!!!! all the cost of developing the airport etc has come from funding from one source or another, non has come from peel itslelf....

I think you've read it wrong. The 1.7 billion quoted is the anticipated benefits to the local economy, along with the 21,000 jobs. Both being quoted by the councils 'regeneration experts', so both figures likely to be largely on the optimistic side.

18 million is being awarded by the regional growth fund (from a pot of 450 million), yet the estimates for the scheme from a couple of years ago put it at over 100 million, and thats before any soil has been touched so will be a conservative estimate.

The rest of the money is supposed to be coming from the private sector as agreed last year, but the sum total of building the scheme (assuming Peel/VAS would be the other main backer) would be more than the cost of actually building the airport itself.

Makes you wonder whether they have bloated the cost of the 'White Rose Way' scheme in their application to the EU

Sorry, it is a 1.7Billion investment that is predicted, comes from the logistical and industrial distribution space set within 120 acres, which is just off White rose way, i wonder if the logistics park wasnt their, would the link road still be going ahead, its still a massive boost to the airport!!

This is not a dont deal, Craig Richmond has said so himself. It rests on the private sector funding to be secured, and its a lot of money to have to secure.

I know there is the planned Rossington Rail Port (is that still in the pipeline?), but does that mean the route would be built in a piecemeal fashion?

As for road links to LBA, would that not be a significantly larger project due to the distance from motorways and the topography of the area?

Maybe some strings being pulled by the likes of Caroline Flint.Leeds never had just one politician who supported the airport, in fact, quite the opposite.

Leeds - New York

I know Jet 2 ran some flights a few years back for a couple of weeks but is there a logistical reason that this route could not be run by Continental for example?

I remember someone saying that the runway wouldn't be long enough or is that just nonsense... but if they've done it before why not?

None other than in light of the merger with United we are more likely to see a retrenchment from the regional UK points than an expansion. Belfast for example is going I believe.
