[QUOTE=panpanpanpan;10832233]Good to see another route returning. Did KLM ever increase their flights or were they once per day Monday to Friday? I know there was rumour of an early morning departure at one stage but don't remember it actually happening.]

I think a second frequency with KL is overdue at this stage. The route clearly has the demand to support it. Do KL have any plans to introduce more flights?

The problem apparently was trying to get an 0630 departure from BHD. That issue may now have gone withe BE demise

I suspect things probably changed a bit since the Ryanair days at BHD and locals not so willing to be accommodating to pre 0630 noise.

Locals !!
Most of the "Locals" as usual were not local and then the good Dr who was head of her own PR company had her army out telling the residents the planes would be flying so low they would need to cut your chimney pots off.
Wonder who gave her all the funding ?

While an 0630 departure from BHD shouldn't be an issue, I suspect they'd ideally want out before this. The majority of their first wave UK tend to fall between 0600-0610, and Dublin even earlier at 0555 to make connections for their second wave AMS departures.

I believe it's 0630-2130 local. Extensions beyond 2130 can be granted by the ADM but I don't think there are exceptions to pre 0630 departures.

Funding

Interesting article tucked away in today's Daily Mail, indicating that a further £11m has now been allocated to maintain 5 sea freight routes GB to NI and to cover flights to BHD and LDY 'which are at risk of being cut off without Govt support'. No time frame indicated. Yet Easy from BFS and Ryan from DUB are operating similar routes ostensibly without subsidy.

Probably to prevent a monopoly or have back up incase of another airline failure.
But most likely government back handers to corrupted people who upset kittens.

According to a poster on SOU thread an announcement is being made this week regarding BHD. Is this the Stobart story??

Blue Islands doing a lot of expansion at SOU, a route to BHD would be a logical next step.

If you actually read the Southampton thread, it’s clear the airline in question is Eastern.

Eastern W20/21 ScheduleAs mentioned in the Eastern thread they have released their initial winter schedule. Looks as though they will be getting some more ATR72-600 as their current planned Southampton schedule indicates that 4 of them will be based!

- Aberdeen and Teesside not on sale yet.
- Leeds Bradford reduced to 11x weekly J41.
- Belfast City, Dublin and Newcastle all 12 weekly with a morning and evening flight on weekdays and one flight Sat/Sun

I think it might be as on the 3rd July on Belfast City Aiport facebook page a video was put about the BA Cityflyer Belfast City to London City new route, also said this a start of number announcements over a fortnight.
The only new announcement at moment so far has been the restart of KLM to Amsterdam

I'd forgotten Eastern were up and running on SOU. Possibly Blue Islands may do EXT? They have increased presence there

Or Flybe, with their former mini-hub at SOU (connecting to JER/GCI from Scotland and the north) and MAN (connecting to Scotland from the south and JER/GCI)!
