Has there been any reason given of the ending of the route midway through season.

BRS-IBZ was the worst performing route of the four operated last summer... From what I can gather the number of forward bookings on the route for this year are considerably down on those from last year.,. So they have decided to drop the route.... BACF plan to continue to offer 2 flights to and from AGP and a weekly PMI service using a E90 and FLR weekly using a E70. Below are details of the schedule changes from BRS

Ibiza

BA7019 BRS 19:45 IBZ 23:05 E90 6 (Ends 30JUN18)

BHX-IBZ was dropped after last summer and was never shown as operating in summer 18. Seems slightly odd that if BRS-IBZ was the worst performing they didn't drop that as well after last summer instead of putting it on sale for this summer, then axing it part way through the season.

Airport passenger numbers continue to grow inexorably, but like the city itself the airport tends to operate under the radar in a national sense for much of the time. With an additional TUI based aircraft (number 4), an additional Thomas Cook based aircraft (number 3), an additional easyJet based aircraft (number 15) plus TUI's 'part based' B787 for 4 days each week this summer, not to mention the usual raft of new routes that come along every year, 'supporters' of many small airports would consider things to be extremely buoyant. This year is likely to see a rise of 'only' around 400,000 passengers though, taking the annual total to the region of 8.6 million.

Compared with 2017 (up 630,000), 2016 (up 823,000) and even 2015 (up 448,000) this might be seen as a slight disappointment by some followers, hence perhaps the lack of posts in this thread. BRS's passenger numbers cannot continue to rise at the rate of recent years. Apart from anything else, a breather is probably needed to enable facilities to catch up with the demand, albeit the airport has been a perpetual bulding site for most of the last 20 years and continues to be so as infrastructure continues to be developed.

I know that you are aware of all this but others who have a passing interest in the airport might not be. Yet again this week I was as good as called a liar when I told someone that BRS is easily the busiest English regional airport after Manchester and Birmingham. Even Grayling, the transport minister, admitted he hadn't realised how busy the airport was when he visited Lulsgate last year.

Indeed, it won't be long before little Bristol is busier than Glasgow, which is in a steep state of decline.

With regard to new routes, I would love to see an easyjet route to Moscow. not football related, just that I would love to see it after all those years in the forces keeping them out, just nice to go and see it before Putin gets Trumps wall contractor in to build a new wall across Europe !!

And don't fancy running (or parking) the gauntlet of the M4/M25 to get to a SE airport to catch the flight.

Dave Lees, BRS's new CEO, joined the airport this week. He was previously MD at Southampton Airport. BRS's previous CEO, Robert Sinclair, went to London City Airport in a similar capacity last October.

Flight Information Screens

All the FIS in the terminal went down around 22:00 on Thursday 13SEP and are apparently still down now, 36 hours later.

Flight and gate info is being given by staff around the terminal and written on boards.

It seems like a very long down time, suggesting a fairly serious problem.

I travelled through on Friday, and disruption wasn't too bad.

When IT things go wrong these days it seems to take longer to resolve whereas you would think with all the expertise it would be quicker. However moving on the airport has reported the August passenger figures.

August 2018

I know a bit of spin with the "near million" but still good stats.

Still no rumours of Turkish Airlines operating as this seems an obvious choice for going east especially with their aggressive expansion and now that Qatar have settled on Cardiff or maybe they are concerned it will dilute BHX which has taken a few years to get back to double daily (summer 19).

With the master plan being worked on by the airport and asking what people thinks about it has been ongoing for quite a while now. I did read that the airport is looking to expand the terminal next year rather than wait for the whole master plan to be passed by the council. The terminal expansion is in the master plan,so I wonder why the airport wants to expand terminal earlier.That tells me the pax numbers are to increase by at least 1 million,so the airport have got some thing up their sleeves that they have not released. Time will tell.

Hello Pete. Haven't 'spoken' with you on here for a while. The IT problem with the information screens still seems unresolved nearly two days after problems surfaced.

Turkish might turn up one day. The new Istanbul airport will certainly give the airline a lot more room. I donít think that Turkish has any Australasian connectivity though which would be a limiting factor for many potential travellers, including me.

As for the airportís passenger figures, for many years they have consistently been under reported each month and at the end of each year when compared with those issued by the CAA (which I understand gets its figures from the airport in the first place). Iíve tried on several occasions down the years to find out why they do this. All they say is that they donít count under 2s and some other types of passenger whereas the CAA does.

The airportís website now carries this notice on its facts and figures section: 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).

The small variances can be quite large in some people's eyes. For example, in July this year the airport showed 925,910 passengers whilst the CAA came in with 938,411 terminal passengers. In 2017 as a whole BRSís figure was 8,136,738 with the CAA showing 8,234,086. August's CAA figures when published will doubtless be in the region of 965,000 which at least is about 13,000 closer to the one million than the airport's figure.

So on the one hand the airport is making a virtue of nearly one million in August but on the other itís consistently under reporting its passenger numbers compared with those issued by the CAA.

Time will tell.
The first part of the public consultation gave three possible options for a new terminal: expand the present one; build a new and bigger one on the north side; build a second complementary terminal on the south side. Following the second round of public consultation the airport is in the process of drawing up a new draft master plan which itself will be the subject of further public consultation, probably early next year. The airport has now settled on expanding the current terminal (which has been extended already a number of times since it opened in 2000) and its scoping report re the environmental impact assessment for future planning applications reflects this.

The airport will also apply to the local authority to have the current 10 mppa limit raised. It is projecting 10 mppa by 2021 and 12 mppa by 2025. It would certainly need to have the terminal further extended (from its current size) to accommodate 12 mppa.

The consultation documents state firmly that a runway extension does not form part of the new master plan. The owners seem content that their airport is a profitable mainly short-haul facility with a sprinkling of long-haul charter flights, as is the case at the moment. With LHR relatively close and the default airport for most long-haul scheduled passengers from the region they no doubt judge that the expense, both financial and environmental, is not justified given the small number of long-haul scheduled routes that the current master plan sees as potentially viable (it names four; one ME and three US, some of which might be possible from the current runway anyway).

nice post mv.i cant get into f4a as it says maintenance. With the master plan going to council next yearit does show that expansion to terminal is a separate issue as airport says we want to expand terminal in 2019.

Information screens

BRS information screens now operating again. Airport says its systems were the victim of some sort of ransomeware attack.

Given that the screens appear to have been running / are running Windows XP,' I'm not surprised they fell victim to an attack. It doesn't seem that hard to get physical access to the network either, if you were determined, and save all the social engineering needed to get someone to click a link in an email.
