This will further consolidate Manchester as 3rd largest airport in the UK and jettison the airport past 30m.
one of the largest in Europe.

Finnair

Cheers Ian

Still showing end of March until the 11 May as the A319. I know you can never trust aircraft types for AY/AF/LH/LX as they change all the time but I thought it might be more permanent.

Obviously a bit of interest down here as it is probably BHX's best chance of a new full service airline.

A - ga - dir, dir, dir, push pineapple (etc)

As well as EZY we also have new entrant Air Arabia Maroc on MAN-AGA. With FR joining in this starts to feel a little crowded for what must be a thin-ish route. I fear casualties. People have a habit of leaving the room when Mr. O'Leary enters, but having said that TAP and Iberia haven't blinked on MAN-LIS and MAD, respectively, with respect.

Apparently Air Arabia have bigger plans for MAN, with 2-3 new routes. A public notice board in T1 also states more routes to come too.

Their pax figures are pretty dire though. I think only once have they achieved more than double figures.

Some superb news today from MAN. Who'd have though MON's gaps would be filled, and then some, so quickly.

It would have been a no brainer. With its huge catchment area, and the loss on 9 based a/c, it was never a case of if, but when. Everyone has come at it, looking for an extra slice of the MAN(chester) pie and a great way to implement further growth in an existing base

Of course the main reason Monarch went down was over capacity leading to weak pricing in key markets. Roughly, what % of the additional capacity is a like for like replacement vs. something new?

And we were always told bad management was a main cause over a number of years as
it seamed to wobble each year.

There are some big increases on existing routes with Ryanair now.

Friday’s in August for example see 4 flights to Alicante, Faro is 17 weekly and AGP now 14 weekly.

I must admit I'm surprised at the lack of coverage of the FR expansion in the MEN. Even the Liverpool Echo gave it a decent wright up.
New summer routes as Ryanair unveils $300m Manchester Airport expansion
Im sure it caught most people by surprise however. Perhaps there will be something in there tomorrow.

Perhaps the MEN focused on this opinion piece from Andrew Cowan, with reference at the end to a team in China speaking to a number of airlines (plural). Good to see irons in the fire after the apparent wobble from HU.

What's the plan for terminal utilisation? T3 is going to be pretty un-fun during the first wave and for arrivals at the end of the day.

I believe its daily for 4 months - can't remember exactly. June /July to end September/October.

I suppose if new carriers enter the market it will cannibalise their loads, but it's been quiet on that front for some time (until recently).
