EasyJet Salzburg yesterday

Anyone know what happened the 07:05 EZY6787 departure on Sunday morning? Delayed almost 12 hours and finally operated by a Berlin based A320 OE- machine with the inbound landing at 17:10 and the outbound going at 18:30. A long day for some passengers...

Are there any new routes likely to be announced for the summer?

easyJet are to announce more routes for S20 next week but don't think BFS will see anything unless a new route is announced using non based aircraft as there doesnt seem to be any gaps in the schedules for S20. Maybe Berlin?

I was under the impression that a new Premier Inn hotel was to be built close to Bfs. Am I correct and if so, did construction ever start?

There was work that started last year clearing all the grass/weeds etc from the area. But there hasn't been anything happening for months now.

Heard from three different sources that Vinci had a big meeting with BIA management last week. Plans for a pier to connect stands 9, 10 and 11 which are currently remote. Plans to completely revamp cargo apron and place 6 new stands, all with jet bridges. Plans also to completely redesign current international pier, modernise and place an additional jet bridge. Plans to capture United, KLM, Turkish and possibly a Middle Eastern airline. Vinci entering initial £110 million, with an additional £55 million should plans be approved. Hopes that govt can stump up another half of funding. Any work to start S23

A very very long walk from the terminal to the cargo stands. They might need a monorail like the satellite at Gatwick South Terminal.
Will any loco pay for a jetway? It would be nice not to stand in the rain and wind on the stairs outside. No one has ever thought to buy covered steps.

Nice to see Jet2 added a few ad hoc flights. Surprised they are not offering Christmas flights to New York.

would be nice if they added another aircraft for summer 20 but probably too late now

I see the viewing gallery is closed, due to works it says. What works are or will be happening that means it has to be closed?

no extra aircraft for summer 20 however you are getting a capacity increase as the base becomes 4 x B737-800ís. The 300ís leave soon to all be based at LBA
