Thanks, makes sense.

So if the 66/33 split is right, compared to last year LM have nicked 500 from EZE and 1,500 new pax?

As mentioned previously Eastern have been boosted by Loganairs arrival, no way have they had 500 nicked, unless that's in comparison to their heyday?

ABZ seems to run at about 1300-1500 per month, last month 3000. If LM are right in saying they've got 66%, Eastern can't have increased - monthly ABZ would have to bhave been under 1000 for them both to have gone up.

Something is wrong somewhere.

Eastern have gone from single figure pax per flight to double figures, more often than not anyway

December passenger figures now on CAA website - looks like 2415 passengers to Aberdeen, up from 1180 last year, Amsterdam up 2% both Santa flights full, and 224 to Norwich, which I think works out at around 6 pax per flight!

So just failed to beat last years desperate figures..2.6% down on the year giving total of 128000.

I suppose at least in a full year the slide has been arrested at long last!

A few positives on the horizon,Let’s see what the New Year brings with extra charter flights,
However a reduction to come on the KLM figures and the bun fight that is Aberdeen to play its course!

Not needed are Volcanoes!,

One interesting point..it seems movements were down..can’t understand that?

All quiet at the moment only development is some sort of car show room on the North landside. Land that we thought had been cleared for the new road. Amazed a certain person missed the planning application.

Air side PTT has taken over the old police hangar turning it into offices and space for three planes.

Movements website showing 132k same as year before? Movements are probably down because of the mismanagement of PTT, GW microlights closing down, and a minor reduction in resident tins, no more 8-deep queues for departure!

Good point..thing GA suffering everywhere..it’s just too. Expensive!

The Excellent DTV site is showing transit passengers as well..don’t think these should be counted as don’t use facilities..or I may be wrong!
Dubai figures could be dodgy as 75% ( that’s my guess)of their passengers are transit..it’s an interesting conundrum?
CAA definitely showing 128k..

aren't the majority at DXB transfer pax (get of the plane and get on another one - so do use the facilities) as opposed to transit pax (plane lands, pax doesn't get off and then flies on to destination)

The movements website notes they may be looking at the wrong table, so looking for myself 128k does seem correct. Despite this I'm told we were the second fastest growing UK airport after Southend, which is probably a vanity statistic!

Yeah that's why they're spending millions on a new radar, security scanners and RNAV approaches

Get real if your intent is to close the place you don't spend millions upgrading it first you just be done with it and save yourself the money!

SWBKCB don't know much other than all the big airports are adopting these fancical new procedures and atc have told me we are as well, think you just press a button in the cockpit and the plane practically lands itself, better for noise abatement too I think? I've also heard rumblings they're at the very start of thinking about resurfacing the runway - far from being greenlit but it's been discussed and acknowledged it needs doing I think, don't hold me to it

Ask anyone that has served in the RAF in the last 30 years about that, and I'm sure they will confirm it happens! Even worse in those cases, as it's public money.
