All is not lost. The airport is still a 1,781,308 passenger airport which is major for regional airports.

Big gains on Paris in December growing by 18% to 6,908 up from 5,861.
Guernsey also did fantastically well growing over 38% to 11,717 in the month from 8,515 the year before.
Geneva grew too - by 6% despite a slightly lower frequency of flights in December up to 2,753 from 2,608.

Overall the airport handled 118,827 in December, a fall of 17% from the previous year.

The Geneva growth is all coming from easyJet- they averaged 135 pax per flight in December, up from 131 last year and 124 the year before
Flybe on the other hand averaged 48 pax per flight, down from 52 last year and 61 the year before.

Ref my post # 1828 and others related to it, improvement with takeoff weights could be significant, unfortunately the proverbial boat has been missed for S20.

If the tree work has been completed the airport's surveyors need to be called in, re-assess the take-off obstacle environment, compile a revised survey report, submit to NATS AIM who will produce new Type A charts to depict the revised obstacle environment. If the surveyors arrive tomorrow you are probably looking at July+ for the Type A Charts to be published.

As we're pointing things out -
Either quiet or quite [something else]....

Picking the bones from it, it reads "if you give us our runway extension EBC, we'll give you access to your planned new business park"

Nothing more than EBC approving 1100 new homes at North Stoneham - if you build us a school?

it would be a shame if they waste the land to the north east on yet more large sheds which employ a tiny amount of people. I am amazed SOU are not marketing the land to business aircraft operators and maintenance providers. Thinking big maybe even manufacturers of aircraft although that might be a stretch. There canít be many pieces of development land that size with direct access to a runway in the UK. This is one of the richest parts of the country after all, and Farnborough has proved that there is insatiable demand for business traffic.

One interesting thing I picked up on the planning portal is that correspondence has been lodged by both BOH and even Bournemouth Council basically asking that their operations are taking into account when deciding whether to give approval. I suppose you cannot blame BOH for protecting their business but itís a bit rich. Very interesting that Bournemouth Council are that supportive of their local airport that they will even comment on a neighbouring airports planning permission, whilst Southampton Council have objected to their local airportís planning permission! Whilst the local council has to be seen to be listening to nimbys as they scream the loudest, SOU is teetering on the edge of losing 90%+ of its business and all the jobs it supports without the extension. What a strange world we live in.

Indeed, surely there are enough of those on the old ford site now due to the fact it all become commercial not a mix of housing as well.

That is the big worry of this whole current situation, if Flybe pull through then all good, if not then the expansion becomes an absolute must for SOU.
