To be fair, I doubt the high-level financial investors in these companies are worried about, or even aware of, the rants and raves of a few wingnuts here on pprune.

That is so true a statement !!!

Some posters are going to give themselves a stroke if there not careful

Things are definitely not on track at the moment but there is a plan and I am sure it will come full circle again

Easy Jet release there schedule on Thursday for next winter , which should give an idea of what they may or may not have planned

Can only think at this stage that it will be Geneva returning so no real indication as to their future plans!

Agreed. Ill be quite happy if it returns regardless of the frequency... weve seen a few carriers leave SOU recently so Im just hoping that easyJet will buck the trend and stick around.
In an ideal world Id like to see the addition of a Saturday morning flight, but Ill take whatever theyre offering at the moment!

EZY should take the 2nd BOU Saturday service and move it to SOU!

Yields are higher on BOH-GVA than SOU-GVA so doubt that will happen

Looks like easyJet are returning on the GVA route next winter. Days and times appear unchanged from this season. BOH also returns with an unchanged schedule.

Shifting a flight for Bourges to Southampton is quite some switch!

Ski Total and Esprit Ski have cancelled there exclusive Southampton charter to Chambery which has been operated for a few years now , sighting problems with chartering an airline

Initially it was operated by Germania and this year upgraded to a Flybe E195 on a W rotation from Birmingham

Ski Total are using an Enter air B738 from BHX for next winter but on a W pattern to BRS instead

More depressing news for SOU,can it get any worse?Well it certainly can if Flybe / Connect start cutting services.The 2 million pax per annum will certainly be out of reach for sometime.

Beat me to it. Shows that the runway extension is very much going ahead. It does beg the question what the head of development does with his time considering a middle manager is being hired to head up the only bit of development for years.

It might get worse before it gets better. I really doubt SOU will have the runway extension open by the start of the summer season 2020. More likely to be either winter 2020 or summer 2021.

If the extension is given the go ahead in the summer and work starts in October , would 7 months not be achievable ?

I know nothing about runway extensions but rather like the BOH extension all those years ago that was done in the winter months and like SOU would all be done within the airport perimeter
I know it was much quicker to action at BOH as there was very little traffic if any , and was done during the day

I guess as well the runway would have a restricted take off length but nothing the DHC8 could cope with ? Easy jet might be different though

I would imagine a 6 month project would be eminently doable and all works would be carried out during non-operational hours so to keep disruption to a minimum!

Any news on the lesser spotted Flylolo operator? All seems very quiet with no social media updates for near on 2 weeks!

Flylolo must have lost money last year considering that their flights to Skiathos were less than half full - so how is it they are still expanding this summer and expect things to be any different?

Rumour has it the E75s are being lined up to operate med routes next year. Not sure they can with current field length limitations!

Unless they are Fly Maybe's under powered variants, may be workable. With the runway extension in place I remain curious as to whether BEE's E175s will be able to do anything other than UK internal flights.
