The current new work is for an extension to the existing building. Once this opens in 2020 the existing building will be closed for renovation, which hopefully will then link into the extension.

I'm sure Roverman can give a better response to mine.

SNOCLO this morning. No arrivals and only one departure at 06.00 - Easyjet somehow managed to slip away.
Forecast is for more snow showers followed by freezing fog.

Good luck!

Runway visitor site.

[QUOTE=LFC22;10379081]Site of PremiAir at the viewing park

Looking at this photo does this mean passengers using the new private terminal will be entering by Sunbank Lane, and more importantly parking in the RVP?
Looking forward their is a possibility of a conflict for the photographers amonst the tas members and the events planned for summer by AVP. Th most viable option would be a viewing deck for photographers postioned southside and leave the viewing park for general visitors and young families.

Has this gone through planning or is it being done through Approved Development? If the latter Iím amazed itís being permitted, to be honest. It strikes me as a means of circumventing the planning process and adding capacity without due process. The T2 extension application was at pains to stress it was designed to replace not add terminal capacity, yet MAG is already saying capacity will be 35m on completion (compared to 25m in the planning application). This could arguably add another million without any evaluation of the potential impacts on the local road network.

It would seem to have been a very quick decision! although Manchester, might have been sitting on this application for some time.
The increase in traffic could be problematic for local residents though and reduced parking options for visitors to the AVP.

A diagram a guy from the new terminal had at the RVP last week showing the state in mid 2019 portrayed the access as branching off the road into the RVP behind the Nimrod and Trident to a dedicated car park in SE corner of the current car park. A covered walkway to the terminal will go through where the 2 small mounds are now. The longer lower mound will be extended by 80 metres to compensate. Looks like passengers will go through security in the terminal, and come out airside to be ferried to their flight.

The latest TAS mag announced the cancellation of the annual event in July due to the work going on.

Given the terminal wonít have any flights departing from it I canít see it affecting the overall capacity. Bear in mind a million passengers a year through it would equate to 300 or more pax/hour at peak times - thatís not plausible through the size of building they are planning. 20-30 an hour would be more realistic I would think otherwise it wonít be the exclusive experience they are promoting. Itís a tool to extract more money from the existing group of punters who are prepared to cough up for special treatment. A souped up version of paying a few quid extra to get the current Fast Track option through security if you will.

My brother & nephew flew to Dublin and back, departing Tue mid-day and returning late Wednesday evening. With Ryanair, the flights cost them £12 each way per person, so a total of £48 for the pair. Parking at the airport for the same period was £58! Barmy!

Do you not agree that it was the Ryanair price that was barmy ?

3 days parking, £58, thatís less than £20 a day. I donít think thatís barmy. Less than £1 per hour, you canít park in the town centre for that price.

Considering I just booked 14 days parking at Jetparks Ringway for £60, I'd say that price is very barmy

Not 3 days parking, more like 40 hours but that was not the point. The' barmy' ref was the comparison between the cost of getting from Manchester to Dublin and back for 2 people vs the cost of leaving 1 car for 1 night.

Where have all the regular contributors to this forum gone? Very few posts these days. Skyscrapercity seems to be equally thin compared to a few months ago.

Passed through T1 this morning for an easyJet flight to Budapest, we're being held on the ground until 06:30 due to "atc restrictions"
I wasn't aware of any issues, can anyone shed any light?

it will be a slot restriction. Every day occurrence - happens on a lot of flights.

I take it you checked flow control for the relevant sectors that you will pass through en route to Budapest prior to boarding to alert yourself to any en route “issues”??

Assuming it was a 'slot delay' it would most likely be due to too many flights planning to go through a certain ATC sector, or arrive at the airport, at the same time. Happens daily, like irishlad says. Any further issues such as weather (thunderstorms, fog etc) or staff shortages would reduce capacity and lead to bigger delays. I'm guessing you weren't due to leave until 0600 or after (UK first wave departures don't really start until then) so that delay doesn't sound excessive - probably just smoothing traffic levels through en-route sectors.

From the 0556 Eurocontrol tactical update.
"LHCC (Budapest)
East and North High Top sector regulated due to capacity.
Low to moderate delays."
