Southampton

Interesting figures,but surely Faro and Nice should be added to this,and I'm sure that with these included there is a great case for somebody to take these over.

NCE and PMI are well within Q400 capability (PMI was flown with it this year), maybe it's just a case that BEE can make more money shuttling the Dashes around the UK/CI and into near Europe, as is their bread and butter. Longer sectors actually decreases a/c utilisation of course.

Thomson 738 off to see Santa this morning at ENF (Enontekio). That's about a 1300nm sector in a 738 off SOU's diddy runway, although I appreciate it's not really representative (it's a day trip, so no/few bags, one would assume, don't know what the load was either).

Small Planet A320 went to IVL (Ivalo) the other day aswell.

I think landing distance is probably more critical at SOU than take-off distance for the 738; it certainly is at SEN which has the same LDA as SOU.

Regional Air Connectivity Fund routes to Munich and Lyon

Any news on when the two new Flybe routes to Munich and Lyon sanctioned to receive Regional Air Connectivity Fund subsidies will commence from SOU?

Is there no possibility the likes of Easyjet could use an A319 to operate certain sun routes out of Southampton ? If not why not? 319's can use the runway at SOU, is there a restriction on load?

regional air connectivity fund routes

Considering Southampton to Munich and Lyon and Newquay to Leeds/Bradford haven't as yet been announced is it at all a possibility that these could be combined onto a SOU based Q operating the unserved SOU-NQY market ie:
SOU-NQY-LBA-NQY-SOU-LYS-SOU-MUC-SOU ?


it might make sense as NQY currently will only have one based E95 to operate 3 LGW and 1 MAN and LBA isn't a base.


SOU-NQY was sold but never started back in the days of the E45 acquired as part of the BACON buy out


just throwing it out there

Southampton - Newquay ? Seems a little too short distance to me. What is the demand ?

Kcockayne: you're clearly not familiar with cornishsimon? Basically every third word is NQY and it doesn't matter what airport or airline the thread is on he will still try and find an angle to bring up NQY. I'm surprised he hasn't mentioned the fact that the big expat population in Australia must be missing pasties and therefore QF should put on a daily A380 from SYD. A fantasist of the highest order.

Southampton - Newquay

Although there probably wouldn't be a huge demand, by road, Southampton - Newquay is only 28 miles less than Southampton to Manchester!

Germania 319 in today operating from and to CMF - is that a regular now for the ski season? BEE also started their CMF flights yesterday on the Dash.

Rivet Joint, that's a bit harsh towards cornishsimon. He's enthusiastic and loyal which is no bad thing.
Just to clear up the E145 service from SOU-NQY that never transpired, it was a route that was looked at as a pure stop gap filler for an under utilised aircraft. The route went on sale because the commercial team took it upon themselves to sell it without consultation. When the dept who knew anything about route lengths looked at it they realised it would never happen because the under utilised window was too small for even that short route. The route was pulled as quickly as it appeared.

Flybe used to consider routes if the road journey was greater than 2.5 hours.

Driving down that sodding A35 they should have done a SOU - EXT never mind NQY.

Seconded, although what he came up with there was indeed quite "imaginative".

He makes a fair point though that Flybe have had these proposed routes funded but haven't announced plans for them as yet.

After chauffeuring son to/from Exeter Uni for four years, A34/A303 although not perfect (thanks to the Blackdown Hills) a lot easier on the sanity.

Germania

Wycombe

The Germania flights to Chambery are operating every Sunday upto the middle of March 2016, operating on behalf of Ski Total I believe.

Nov '15 stats

Passengers down a sizeable 15.2% in November, meaning the rolling year is now down by 1.3% on 2014. VLM carried 717 passengers to Hamburg, leading to an average load of 34% or 17 passengers. There are still no numbers for Antwerp available. Flybe carried 1553 passengers to Dusseldorf leading to a similarly poor load factor of 33% or 26 passengers per flight. Lets hope the popularity of the German Christmas markets gives both routes a boost this month.

Southampton Passenger figures

Why are the figures so poor? and can Southampton bounce back like other regional airports have?

I can only assume that Flybe's cancellation of the Alicante and Malaga routes in the autumn of this year would have contributed significantly to this downward trend?!
