MAG grows in February as it applies to raise passenger cap at London Stansted

Up 1.3% for Feb
1,681,406 pax
27.8m pax YTD

Still had the loss of Monarch and reduced Ryanair schedules to contend with so not to bad to be back in growth. No doubt the 50 or so diverts May have helped the cause.

Not sure what to make of the Primera news.

They seem to be rather, scatty, with their route planning so we need to err on the side of caution.

But, it seems the Spanish routes ex-MAN have gone the other way from the overcapacity issues so Primera May be able to find a niche in the schedules.

With their route planning however, I doubt this is the only new route we will see in the next few months from Primera. There was a dot over Manchester regarding future bases (possibly TATL) on a recent video presentation, so, wonder if a STN/MAN deal is in place.

While I fear Primera would be trounced by MT/VS on a NYC and BOS route, it would be welcome to have Washington back and judging by prices, Toronto could use more peak season capacity, as well as more than just 2 weekly in winter.

But I suppose its a wait and see how it pans out kind of moment.

Looking at the A555 at Woodford yesterday, it's completion is still about 9 months away, unless there is a plan to open it one section at a time. I believe the carriageway between the old and new A34s has suffered some kind of partial-collapse on the eastbound side?
On Monday evening, all the signals in the 3-way control at Styal Road/Ringway Road were showing permanent reds.

Primera have been very clever with their AGP flight times. They have spotted the gap left by Monarch and Norwegian in the schedules for flights late afternoon/early evening.

I am not sure that moving into a gap vacated by one bankrupt airline and another which has exited said market due to unsustainably low yields is exactly a sensible business strategy. Hopefully Primera do not do themselves irreparable damage with this scattergun approach to the UK market.

....Plenty of experience in the market,owned by tour operators & it is not just about MAN per se.

It appears to be helping to fill gaps/making use of the airframe`s deployment into the UK.

Will be interesting to see how MAN does develop however as it appears MAG have forged a good relationship with Primera.

This utilities a Malaga based aircraft that fills its time operating to Manchester, Birmingham and Paris.

All lovely. Let's see if it is still here in 12 months time having proved economically viable. None of us can predict that with certainty so only time will tell.

Hopefully Primera will use T2 with T1 looking pretty full.

So, last year Hainan applied to the CAAC to serve Changsha-Heathrow from March, Beijing-Dublin/Edinburgh from June and Guangzhou-Manchester from December. With the former routes now officially announced, hopefully this stands good stated that the latter will also get announced in due course to complete the full house.

Is there anything official yet as to whether this will be happening? booked flights to ACE yesterday for early summer and no mention of anything out of the ordinary terminal wise.

The signs I have seen for the A555 W/B carriageway repairs (not E/B) for the collapsed drains suggest a completion date of June-July18. This is probably a factor in why the SEMMMS completion date has recently been updated to "late summer 18".

The Styal Road/Ringway Road area is currently a 4-way set of lights, allowing departing Staff East/Jetparks traffic its own sequence - so possibly it was their light which was on green.

Flights to AGP, PMI, TFS and ACE will switch over to T2 on 11th April. All other routes are still in T1 for the time being.

Hmmm...

You would assume MAN would be at the forefront of any non-London UK service.
