Probably a handling agent to start with. It's a massive chunk of money buying all the GSE to support just 3 aircraft. When BHX and STN opened, they used handling agents for the first year or so.

Really good interview this morning, with several digs at the competition, mostly likely mainly TUI and discreetly pointing out tthe differences between each company and their recent performance.

They used a handler on the ramp but their own staff for check-in/gate at both start ups

Swissport and DHL. DHL are tied in with Easyjet and not entirely sure if that permits them to handle anyone else at the moment. Front of House will be self handled, can see Swissport taking on the Ramp.

Bristol-6

56 flights a week at peak with 3 aircraft is going some. Even 4 would mean every aircraft doing 2 rotations a day, so not sure how they'd cope on 3. Draft in reserve?
Ground equipment - cant see Jet2 having a problem with providing their liveried gear to BRS. I:m sure any potential opposition to this has been sorted commercially before they signed up.

I donít see J2 using third parties unless they have to. Itís what differentiates them from the rest of the pack. They are already talking about how many new jobs this will create.

I seem to remember that jet2 move to selfhandling when the base has 7 or more a/c.

Jet2 Handling

Do jet2 self handle FOH & use ground handers for BOH (ramp) or provide complete self handling at certain UK airports? As aboard in Spain it is FOH only & ramp is provided by ground handling companies like aviapartner. I see jet2 are advertising the role station manager for BRS, this seems a bit excess considering if they could to use Swissport for FOH/BOH ground handling. It would be great to see Jet2 to come in with their own ground handling, or if Ryanair self handle with Blue handling. As I think under the current situation Swissport would not be to handle all their service providers including Jet2, after the mass redundancies across the UK including BRS. I know a big what if especially if the summer schedules from FR, TUI, KLM, U2 & Jet2, etc do or don't materialize but lots of based units to handle there. Just a thought for a few.....

Jet2 provide fully integrated ground handling at most UK stations. FOH/BOH split as you suggest I think is only provided in Scottish airports, Belfast & NCL I believe.

Spain is not entirely accurate. There are many stations that are fully self handled, PMI, ALC, AGP to name the three of the top of my head. TFS maybe a further one too.

Looks like Jet2 will deploy similar handling to its Scottish and NCL bases. passenger interaction points will be employees employed directly by Jet2.com.
dispatchers
cabin crew
passenger services

below wing (baggage sortation and ramp) will be outsourced) to a 3rd party handling agent which makes sense as it is only a 3/4 aircraft base initially so the numbers arenít there for it to work as a fully self handled base. If they grow to say 7 aircraft then I can see them take it all in house maybe within a few years. This will depend on how their relationship is with whoever the handling agent is.

It’s been reported this week that the Planning Inspectorate will begin work next month on Bristol Airport’s appeal against the rejection of the airport’s planning application by its local authority, North Somerset unitary authority (NSC).

The planning application sought permission for new infrastructure to allow the airport to handle 12 mppa together with associated requests to raise the current 10 mppa passenger cap to that level and to rationalise but not increase overall its night movement noise restrictions. The main feature of the process will be a four-week public enquiry reportedly to be held in July next year.

BRS originally projected that it would reach 12 mppa by 2026 but now believes that the virus effects have probably delayed that until 2030. The airport was allowed by the Planning Inspectorate to enter further submissions based on the new scenario which the Planning Inspectorate judged to be ‘exceptional’. NSC has opened a public consultation based on the airport’s new submissions.

The airport submitted its original planning application to NSC in December 2018 but it was not until February 2020 that the authority’s planning committee met to determine the application which was rejected. Because the rejection was contrary to the recommendations of its own planning officers who recommended approval the authority’s standing orders dictate that the decision had to be ratified at a later planning committee meeting which was done in March 2020.

The airport launched its appeal in summer 2020.

The appointed planning inspector could decide the outcome of the appeal him or herself but because of the nature of the application it’s likely that following the inspector’s enquiry the matter will be ‘recovered‘ by the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government (currently the Rt Hon Robert Jenrick MP) in order to make the final decision himself. He would take account of the planning inspector’s recommendations but is not bound by them.

Therefore it’s likely that no decision will be made until at least the latter part of next year and, if it goes in favour of the airport, subsequent legal action by opponents might well delay matters further.

Some changes afoot for Summer 2021 with easyJet at BRS:
  • SVQ and VIE seem to be cancelled with immediate effect
The two cancelled routes are not lost as they are still served by Ryanair.

Lufthansa - Frankfurt

Announced today that it will return from 28 June this year operating daily on BRS-FRA, reportedly using E190 aircraft.

LH970 FRA 1020-1100 BRS (Mon, Wed, Fri & Sun)
LH970 FRA 1630-1710 BRS (Tue, Thu & Sat)
LH971 BRS 1230-1500 FRA (Mon, Wed, Fri & Sun)
LH971 BRS 1750-2020 FRA (Tue, Thu & Sat)

Lufthansa had been due to reinstate the FRA route from the end of March last year at 2 x daily (single daily Saturdays) but the pandemic put an end to that plan. With overseas travel still facing continuing uncertainties I wasn't expecting a return of Lufthansa this year. It's very good news for BRS.
