tibbs87: This would be perfect for a Jet2 operation for example:

Friday night NCL to BOH with the a/c night-stopping. Saturday morning the aircraft could do BOH to the Med and back to BOH a couple times then the same on Sunday and then Sunday night or early Monday morning back to NCL. Definitely could fill a plane of 189 seats with people from Newcastle wanting a Hen or Stag Night weekend in BOH!

good god please don't blight poor old Bournemouth anymore with plane loads of drunken skanks and tarts - we are trying to get over that image which has damaged the town

I'm seeing 2 problems with this

1. People from NCL would likely have a few drinks beforehand, meaning half of them would be unfit to fly, if it ever gets off the ground to begin with (delays)
2. 1 less A/c in NCL for Sat/Sun, where there is proven demand for the flights/ holidays

Come on MARKEYD we have to be a bit delusional in order to keep positive... nothing else is happening at BOH

Exeter and Flybe are now doing 4 daily flights to MAN, double daily to CDG and 11 a week to AMS. How can BOH still, in 2018, be without services to these hub cities? Bournemouth is three times the size of Exeter!

Because those routes are covered by SOU for the area and I'm pretty sure AMS and CDG are only daily flights for both routes from EXT and MAN is 3 daily.

Southampton canít do LC bucket and spade v well but it can do small plane regional and city very well - the distance between the two is minimal - They should actually compliment each other and not canabalise each other as ones strengths literally is the others weakness - fingers crossed for Jet2 and increases in TUI FR winter sun from BOH - almost perfect for all - someone to get hold of Flybe and shake it and cites and regional increases from Southampton - not sure how a Palma flight by EZY will be the saviour of Sou - it will just underline the restraints on it - runway/infrastructure/curfew - they will hardly see the prospects of a airport they canít get back after delays to at night or with a stacked 320 being unable to take off - leaving them with no flexibility but the 319 - more Buckets to BOH please!

The truth of the matter is however, BOH could in fact be very successful at both markets (as proved for the short time while flybe were operating from there) while SOU really does seem to be that one trick pony so to speak. With Exeter now getting an increase in frequency, maybe it's time for the new owners of BOH to offer flybe a great (and no doubt better than SOU) deal at there big sister airport.

So why did BE stop operating?

This is not correct. An A320 will offer a greater take off range at full payload from a limiting runway such as SOU than the EZY A319-111. The engines of the -111 variant are in effect derated which means it is not optimised for operating from short runways . Other variants of the A319 have higher rated engines.The EZY A320 does not suffer from this drawback so is less affected.

Maybe was just a toe in the water, or more than likely a ploy to get a better deal out of SOU signed (which initially may have worked) also am sure MAG offered them a free term, so why wouldn't they give it a try. Now under RCA ownership, with BE already operating put of there other airports, who knows what could be in the pipeline.

So how can that be classed as proof that they were "very successful"?

With the distinct possibility that jet 2 will open up a base at BOU in 2019,the chance of Easy operating any sun routes from SOU must be very remote indeed.Its Bournemouth time to expand,they have the runway and airside capabilities ( unlike Southampton) and carriers must be looking to use capacity available.

​​​​​Bit of research into the pax loads during the time they operated from BOH is proof.

After all the rumour and noise about Jet2 it seems this has gone cold due to lack of aircraft and crew.

This seems to be confirmed by Andrew Bell CEO of Regional & City Airports who when speaking with the Echo tried his best to say that it would be next year and the year after next year that things in the pipeline will come to fruition. Basically the only thing he could confirm was that they are asking local people in surveys to tell them where they want to fly to.

Pretty disappointing given 9 months already under new ownership.
