52 of the airport's scheduled 79 departures today were cancelled and 53 of the 79 arrivals were also cancelled (Thursday).

Nothing departed after about 1400 following airlines' operational decisions but inbounds continued to land until around 1800. A TUI B757 from Arrecife due in at 1845 diverted to MAN after circing overhead BRS for about 40 minutes.

Of tomorrow's 85 scheduled departures 34 have already been cancelled.

The BRS runway re-opened around 1200 today (Friday). However, most of today's 85 departures and 85 arrivals have been cancelled by the airlines as a precautiionary measure.

A few have operated or are not yet shown as cancelled:

Ryanair from to Cologne and Alicante operating - both inbounds already arrived
Thomas Cook to Tenerife operating - has departed
TUI to Tenerife showing 'checkin'
bmi regional to Munich, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Brussels and Aberdeen showing 'checkin' (these are the afternoon departures; the earlier rotations on these routes and other bmi regional routes were cancelled)
Blue Islands/Flybe to Jersey showing 'checkin'

Surrounding roads are still difficult and all bus services to and from the airport have been taken off the road by their operators because of road conditions.

Addendum

bmi regional flights to FRA, MUC and DUS now cancelled as is the Blue Islands/Flybe flight to JER. The TUI to TFS is showing 'final boarding' so it looks as though it will operate.

Good job

Great job by the airport for keeping the runway open to allow the flights which are operating to operate safely.

Some airports are closed until 6am tomorrow at the earliest.

January 2018 Passenger Stats

BRS was not amongst the first group of airports in the CAA's January stats so still awaiting those.

The airport's own figures show that 480,231 terminal passengers used the airport in January, up 2.8% on its own figures for January 2017. The airport doesn't provide rolling 12-month totals based on its own figures.

However, for some reason BRS does not include all passengers in its monthly and annual figures - under 2s are one example - with the result that its monthly and annual passnger numbers are less than the CAA's, even though the CAA gets its own figures from the airport. I've asked BRS more than once in the past why they do this but have never received a logical answer - not logical to me anyway. Cynics might suggest it would mean their current 10 mppa passenger cap is that bit further away but I don't think that's the reason.

The airport's stats page carries this note: Due to differences in the way some flights are recorded, Bristol Airport figures may contain small variances when compared to those reported by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

Depends what is meant by small. In 2017 the CAA recorded the airport handling 8.234 million terminal passengers whilst BRS made it 8.137 million (97,000 fewer).

Based on a 2.8% rise on the CAA stats for January 2017 they would show around 487,000 terminal passengers for January 2018 with a rolling 12-month total of 8.247 million.

That just indicates the number of pax who've chosen advanced seat selection. Not booked totals.

What ARE you on about?

MerchantVenturer very clearly stated that because BRS don't count passengers under 2 years old, their numbers are therefore FEWER than the CAAs figures.... How have you therefore decided that this means BRS is fiddling the numbers...?!

Can you just head back to the Cardiff thread please?

I'm sure the mods don't want comments that you have just posted. I hope you have proof in what you say ,if no proof then why say things like you have written. I' do hope the mods keep a good eye on what you write in youre posts and do the correct thing in banning you from posting in these forums. with slander comments against who ever has landed the poster in court and cost them lots of money. So be carefull what you write in future,i would suggest you stay on the cwl thread ,perhaps that way you will keep yr posts less slanderous.

I wonder how accurately airports account for passengers/crew of executive aircraft. And what about flying clubs - I'm sure they don't indicate for every departure/arrival whether there are 1,2 or 3 persons on board.

bmi

https://www.bristolairport.co.uk/abo...-paris-service

bmi is to increase its BRS-CDG route to 3 x daily Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from May.

easyJet has not increased its once daily service on the route for a number of years despite regularly selling out, so perhaps an opportune time for bmi.

And where do u get that information from ? As far as I am aware a technical stop was only required 3 or 4 times last summer due to weather conditions. The cancun service is scheduled as non stop twice a week.

It's not planned to go via MAN so pax wouldn't be aware until the figures are calculated prior to take off. The weather conditions either at BRS or en route is usually the deciding factor. Unfortunate, but not that common.

easyJet winter 18/19

easyJet is continuing its winter expansion at BRS of recent years (Bordeaux and Bilbao became year-round from last winter) with both Catania and Naples extended into the winter season for the first time, both at 2 x weekly. Seville which begins in June at 2 x weekly will operate through the winter at 3 x weekly with Nice also operating right through the winter instead of taking its mid-season break. Prague is increased to daily in November and December, 5 x weekly in January. easyJet is yet to release February and March timetable.

The remainder of the schedule seems broadly similar to last winter, albeit a few routes do have additional weekly rotations.

Seville will be up against Ryanairís new route that starts this winter at 2 x weekly and easyJet will operate Venice at 4 x weekly again but increased to 5/6 x weekly for most of December and early January against Ryanairís daily Venice (in summer 2018 easyJet operates daily to Venice for most of the season with Ryanair 4 x weekly).

I posted the apparent Ryanair winter 18/19 programme per the booking engine some weeks ago, although as far as I know it is yet to be announced officially. As with easyJet, Ryanair has been significantly increasing its winter offering at BRS in recent years.

Is there really enough demand to warrant such huge capacity at BRS? It seems relentless - where is BRS’s saturation point? At this rate they will be overtaking BHX!

I’d like to see better global connections from BRS like Turkish Airlines to Istanbul, Emirates to Dubai (787-8 or 9 has no issue with BRS runway length as far as I know) becasue further expansion into European sun and city routes seems overkill.

There can hardly be any short haul leakage to London airports anymore from the BRS catchment
