Wow - that strikes me as a great way to start a local outbreak of Covid. The word 'evacuation' sums it up nicely.

Agree 100%. Of course all the PAX will be placed in closely monitored quarantine won't they? Thought not!

There are currently 5 VT biz sitting at Luton, don't seem to be in any rush to go home, maybe the operators think it is safer to stay in UK!

8 routes from BHX with Wizz this winter and up to 4 departures on some days. Not bad going considering the current climate. One to watch for potentially more routes in 2021? MXP would be nice, they have a base there I think?

Blue Air are also returning BHX-OTP from March 2021.

Obviously all subject to change.

I flew FR BHX-VRN last week, BHX was the quietest I have ever seen in my 20+ years of travelling through it during all hours and seasons. The departures board was more like it was in the early 90's with hefty time gaps between flights. My flight itself however was quite well loaded I'd say 75% full. Just goes to show how tough times are and are likely to be for a while which is why it's nice to see the new Wizz routes.

Just out of curiosity, are the airports towards the bottom of this list (below EDI) busier than BRS/GLA/BFS/ABZ?

What percentage is BHX down out of interest. I am guessing it is on a par with the others. Amazing that LTN is so high , even higher than MAN. I am guessing this is the effect of WIZZ and Ryanair who seemed to go back to flying a lot quicker than other carriers

BHX down 90%

Yes LTN is the clear winner here with LGW / LCY the biggest losers.

With MAN behind STN but ahead of LGW

Market Share Jun-20 Jun-19

LHR 50.2% 25.4%
LTN 9.1% 5.9%
STN 8.5% 9.3%

EDI 2.7% 5.0%
BFS 2.1% 2.1%
BHX 1.9% 4.4%
GLA 1.6% 3.2%

[QUOTE=BHX5DME;10870022]BHX down 90%

Some green shoots at least on the last day of month.

Loganair Inverness started today on the ER3 but move to the ER4 or that is the plan and will be 5 a week in general. Aberdeen going 6 a week from 14 September and the AT72 showing Friday and Sunday

Blue Island Jersey started today 4 a week

KLM increased to 4 daily which I didn't see coming but not sure when that changes as I was convinced it was showing 3 on Saturday

Lufthansa - Cityline finish on the Frankfurt with the Airbus coming back with the Tuesday night-stop cancelled but back to double daily at the weekend. Munich continues at 6 a week

Eurowings - Double daily in the week in general from tomorrow

Emirates - Back tomorrow 4 a week with the 77W

Ryanair - I will include this in the positive news despite the reduction in flights but BHX can't complain as it is still a significant schedule just planned cuts to IBZ, ACE & DUB with extra odd frequency cuts on ALC, BCN & PMI

SAS - Still bookable from the 14th 3-4 a week

Jet2 - Covered on other threads but the Balerics have gone for summer, Pula gone and Budapest delayed before Hungary announced they were closing their borders. Spanish mainland and Canaries now delayed until at least the week commencing 13 September. On the positive side there have regular additions - Faro 7 to 11 a week. Heraklion 3 - 5 a week, Dalaman is now 7 a week and Antalya 6. Rome and Krakow have restarted but Prague is the end of September (possibly), Lisbon, Venice and Barcelona now late October

TUI - Faro restarted yesterday and the Thursday flight has been reinstated as well from this week. Enfidha due to start Friday has been removed for summer and winter I believe. Egypt has moved back to mid-month with Hurghada x 2 and 1 x Sharm. Paphos and Larnaca are due to start the weekend. It appears the extra Monday Corfu and Antalya might end today. All Spanish seems to be bookable still from mid-month

The not so good

easyjet - Glasgow varies between 4 a week to 6 week during September down from 2 daily at times, Edinburgh between 7 or 8 a week again down from double daily on certain days. Belfast to 10 a week from 13 and packed virtually every flight.

Aer Lingus - Taking advantage of the easyjet Belfast reduction - oh no and they have cut the new BHX frequencies before it starts with Tuesday and Wednesday in September just daily - I assume poor forward bookings? Now 3 a day Monday and Friday, 2 a day Thursday and Sunday and one daily the rest but probably sensible in such times. Dublin delayed until late September which is not a surprise andh Cork and Shannon remaining winter..

Air France - All over the place - 2 HOP today but none tomorrow with Air France seemingly be back on Saturday on the A319 but most flights are still HOP. One change for the winter is the bringing forward of the night-stop aircraft from summer but not an extra frequency just a replacement.

Brussels Airlines - Delayed until the end of the month

Swiss - just 5 a week from winter

Al subject to change but overall pretty good considering

Vueling

Vueling appear to be taking a sabbatical from Birmingham for the month of October, last Barcelona flight is showing 28th September, and the next one is currently showing as 1st November.

No real surprise with the current situation with Spain, of course subject to change!

Given that November is always the worst month for business in a normal year ,think that that could well change again

Vueling is December at the earliest now.

Excellent day to day with Aer Lingus Belfast City starting. SAS Copenhagen back although only twice a week (Mon/Fri) , F1 charters today by BA CityFlyer and TUI Belgium plus a couple yesterday (WDL & Sun Air). An even rarer visitor possibly tomorrow a TUI MAX reported on several sites due from Tenerife via Malaga. Quite a few GA today making around 130 movements.

Aer Lingus - back today on the new Belfast City route.

The schedule is not as originally planned but should change as the service gets established.

Monday will see three flights 08:05, 15:45 & 19:20 (inbound times) but just one on Tuesday and Wednesday (afternoon), two on Thursday (morning & afternoon) three on Friday, one Saturday late morning and two Sunday (afternoon and evening).

Not such good news on their Dublin, Cork and Shannon Routes. The latter two now 1st November back a further few days and Dublin 19 October.

Loganair - Aberdeen goes 6 a week from Monday and the ATR drops in on Friday and Sunday (Aisle seats showing blocked) and Inverness continues 5 a week

Aurigny - I am sure this was due to start this week or next week but now Monday 12 October

Air France - This week showing twice daily all week but there are future dates are showing just one or even none some days. The A319 is schedule on AF1164 next Saturday again.

KLM - Best to say 3 or 4 a day with KL1431 operating Monday & Tuesday only this week with mainline still on KL1421/2 except Sunday

Lufthansa - No noticeable change with 13 a week FRA and 6 Munich. Cityline showing back on the Frankfurt next month

Eurowings - No noticeable change with 10 a week double daily Monday - Thursday a mix of A319's and A320's

Brussels Airlines - Monday 28 September still 4 a week (M, Th, Fr & Su)

Swiss - remains winter 5 a week

Air India - Trying again next Friday for around 6 weeks at once a week - inbound 17.20 a night-stop and out 20.00 Saturday. Showing as ATQ/DEL

Turkish & Emirates - no change 4 a week and TK showing all 737's at present next week and EK showing a daily A380 in December. Qatar remains bookable in winter

Wizz - No Change but Budapest remains bookable in October and the recently ended Wednesday Warsaw is bookable in winter making it 3 a week

Ryanair - Not too many changes if any - 10 remains 10 a week, the second Friday Alicante is still bookable, Verona ends before October half-term returning Christmas. Although today's Palma shows operated by Lauda I have not found any others.

Jet2 - With a week a way I have lost track and some surprises with Kefalonia starting next Sunday - yep a new service with just 4 flights. A 4th Corfu flight a week is added operating next Saturday, Dalaman and Antalya are now 7 a week, neither operating on a Wednesday but two Saturday flights. The Canaries, Malaga & Alicante remain bookable from the last few days of this month. Crete and Zante end at the end of this new week. Rhodes remains 3 a week and Skiathos 2 but they end soon. Faro in the timetable also still shows 11 a week. Prague remains 30 September. The rest seems unchanged

easyjet - No change for September (10 x BFS, 7 x EDI & 4-5 GLA a week )but winter has been scaled back to sensible levels

TUI - Skiathos has ended despite Jet2 carrying on until the end of the month. Sunday Crete still shows bookable although not Thursday. Dalaman shows 2 next Sunday for one week making 5. Antalya Monday seems to end this week making it 4 a week but is now bookable all through November which I think is a first for TUI. Kos drops to weekly after next Saturday. Looking into October - Sharm and Hurghada are bookable still but Boa Vista isn't. Could there be a return to long-haul as Montego Bay reamins bookable and due to start in a few weeks although the others have been removed until November.

Any additions or corrections welcome.
