Has the Brussels route always been suspended during the British summer? Seems no flights in July and August.

It was usually reduced in the number of daily rotations operated. July and August were taken out of 'the system' for 2020 a while ago.

"is there not a case of slowing down the bigger airports such as BRS and MAN, even EDI so that the smaller airports can grow and provide better for their catchment area. "

that is INTERFERING IN THE MARKET - you'll never get any support for that in politics - the first thing the disadvantaged would do would be to sue for damages.............

You'll be asking for an integrated transport policy next my lad......................

I wouldn't call BRS a big airport whether by number of airlines, air transport movements or passenger numbers, and certainly not by physical size. It's a small to medium size mainly short-haul regional airport. It certainly cannot be put in the same bracket as MAN or anywhere near.

I live near it and have been using it since the 1970s. It's very good at what it does which is largely short-haul with some TUI transatlantic charter routes and some long-haul hubs at AMS, BRU, DUB and the soon to be re-connected FRA.

Brussels Airlines BRU service suspended from 17th - 28th March.

2 x daily CRJ9 services

Has the potential to be suspended beyond this date I'm sure...

SN to BRU / LH to FRA

SN BRS-BRU is missing from the schedules until 01MAY (Friday), when the afternoon rotation is operating (SN2057/2058/2059). But that feels like someone just deleted out until 30th April, rather than a considered return date.

I hope the new LH BRS-FRA route doesn't also get killed off. The last time LH operated that route, they killed it off because of the financial crisis. We're not having a lot of luck with that.

FRA route
The FRA route might get canned again with whats going on with the coronavirus and talk of a world wide recession.One thing is certain the world how it operates now will change in many ways.

Looks like the start of this service has been pushed back to Sunday 26 April...

Subject to change Iím sure.

This from the BBC News live ticker on the dreaded virus regarding Edinburgh airport could equally apply to just about any airport in UK (with the undoubted exception of LHR!).

Edinburgh Airport has warned that it is potentially facing the scenario of receiving no passengers in the next three months because of coronavirus.

In a statement released on Friday, a spokesman for the airport said: "We are facing an unprecedented situation, looking at the potential of three months of zero or close to zero passenger demand.

"We have spent the last few weeks looking at how we deal with the immediate and longer term effects and unfortunately that means taking some extremely tough decisions as the industry continues to react."

More than 100 jobs at the Scottish airport are said to be at risk.
In these sorts of circumstances talk of new routes is just about as fanciful as expecting to see a flock of flying pigs. I feel very sorry for the thousands working in commercial aviation, it's ancillary services, tourism and hospitality.

From the departure boards, it looks like there are no flights arriving or departing BRS tomorrow (29MAR).

There is a Loganair to Aberdeen, looks like it's empty though, plus a few private movements

Also there is a combined Loganair service with Birmingham to Aberdeen Sunday evening and a Ryanair Dublin

Nothing today or tomorrow? (I'm going by the Departures page on the website, so not necessarily ideal as a data source).

According to the local rag there were no regular commercial flights today with an airport spokeswoman quoted as saying, "Bristol Airport is operational to assist with repatriation, medical, military and other essential flights." I take that to mean that the normal flight programme has been suspended.

Bristol proposal to be designated a “coordinated” airport.

BRS co-ordinated airport

The intention was announced a few months ago.

BRS is currently co-ordinated (level 3) in summer only (BST) and then only between 2300 and 0659 hours each night. This is to help it manage its night time movement restrictions and night time noise quota limits.

Whether the previously identified need to extend the co-ordinated status for the entire summer period (24/7) can still be shown given the likely impact on aviation of COVID-19 in the years ahead might now be a moot point.

CAA stats

BRS handled 560,250 terminal passengers in February this year, up 7% on February last year. Rolling 12-month total was 9.011 million, the first time the airport has handled over 9 million passengers in a 12-month period. They might have to wait quite a while for the feat to be repeated.

Brussels Airlines

The BRU service is now suspended until summer 2021 along with seven other routes from BRU.

I wonder if Brussels will keep Bristol under review, as it's always been a reasonably well performing route. The demise of bmi meant a bit of a scramble to get SN back in and to find an aircraft to operate it.

I hope this means LH are committed to launching FRA when things get back on their feet, otherwise we're back to being completely disconnected from the Star network again.

Just noticed in the website that the main terminal building is closed and all passengers are going through Aviation House. I think as far as scheduled flights are concerned, that's the Ryanair Dublin flight on Fri/Sat/Sun/Mon evenings? I assume they have security facilities there, and that you just drop and grab hold luggage from a trolley.
