SAS to launch Stavanger Service

From Business Traveller

Scandinavian Airlines is to launch a year-round service between Manchester and the Norwegian city of Stavanger later this year.

The twice weekly route will operate on Mondays and Fridays from November 8, using a B737 aircraft.

SAS already serves Oslo and Bergen from Manchester, and will offer a total of 49 flights per week from the English city this winter.

The carrier said that it has “steadily expanded its direct services to Manchester in line with the increase in demand for trips to the British Isles and the interest in English football in particular”, and cited the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United, which it said had inspired “many Norwegians to travel to matches”.

Commenting on the news Torbjørn Wist, financial director at SAS said:

“There is tremendous interest in English football and now SAS is creating additional opportunities for even more Norwegians to be able travel to see their favourite teams in action in the famous stadiums, in a way that is fast and convenient. We are the airline with the most flight connections between Scandinavia and Manchester”.

Norwegian also plies the Manchester-Stavanger route with up to three flights per week.

MANTP Update #104 = (16th August-16th September 2019)

As always my thanks go to the MANTP Team for supplying these images and full credit is given to them.

I appreciate that certain images hardly seem to change over the week, at present, however that is the nature of the beast, and I have included them all for completeness.

A question on the T2 redevelopment project updates. What is IDLEX? I remember in the 80's there was an IDLEX project in T1, which was the International Departure Lounge Extension. Is this the same thing for the T2 redevelopment?

Your memory is very good. The old IDLEX (International Departure Lounge Extension) operations tower is being brought back into use for its original purpose. As part of the MANTP project the current "ops centre" on the west apron will be closed. I never did understand why they moved out of the IDLEX tower in the first place.

MAN still has a BA Line Engineers base at MAN who also do cover for the likes of AA, QR, LH, AF amongst others aswell as BA's own metal.

Thanks, Scottie. That makes sense - the photo in your update looked like an ops tower rather than an extension to a departure lounge! I remember the IDLEX tower going up, probably 35 years ago now.

It was both - the extension to the concourse area is pretty much where Starbucks currently is. That was in the days when MAN only had 1 terminal (and 1 runway) so 'International Departure Lounge' only referred to the original T1 before it was even called T1. How times have moved on!
In reality it's time that T1 'moved on' - well past its sell by date but no doubt the decision will be dodged and they'll still be doing temporary fixes to holes in the roof in 10 years time.

Apparently AirLivery are leaving MAN. I've heard that their rent has been increased by 400%. Could this be to make way for another operator? Flybe/VS perhaps (with the closure of Exeter)?

I'm hearing all sorts of rumors from cargo storage to another carpark, either way, it's a shame that an Aviation buisness is being forced out with the resultant loss of employment.

There is a large new hanger under construction at SEN able to take A321 sized aircraft. Rumours abound!!

Since they are not a UK owned company I suppose the work will be taken on by their various European facilities.

Disgraceful if that's true. MAN management have already expelled most of the pure freighter business. light aviation etc.
Is this a further step in the apparent corporate goal to move out of aviation completely and consolidate on car parking, real estate development and retail?

I wonder if it will be pulled down to give a lot of extra parking space for aicraft.
