Very interesting article in
ď. anna.aero ď. ( sorry canít seem to get a link ) with the new MD and his asperations for Bournemouth in the next few years

Key points made were 2019 should see an extra 150,000 passengers pass through the airport due to the new routes starting this year

Double the passenger numbers in the next 5 yrs

Bulk of new growth however thinks will come in 2020

Looking at Amsterdam and Paris again , Dublin starts this year

Reintroduction of cargo flights

All looked a well balanced plan and nothing to ambitious I think , good luck

MARKEYD when does the CAA release their Nov and Dec stats. BOH seems to be late in turning in their data all the time.

Looking ay holidays for October half tem, TUI/First Choice websites show the Lanzarote flights outbound and in both at the same time. Is this a website glitch or are they operating two aircraft this year?

The article on anna.aero seems to show that SG can certainly articulately talk about BOH's potential. I feel good about him.

In Oct after half term possible switch to a W pattern for winter series? (Thus flight home arrives before the departure)

Looks like more interesting developments happening for 2019

New Premium lounge opens 1 June airside

Self handling of flights starts in April

New retail outlets like Costa and Navigation pub opening to bring them in line with Norwich airport , probabaly though a change of branding from the current restaurant

Have to say though Rigby group are certainly making there mark at BOH very quickly far more than the MAG ever did and to have a dynamic MD will most definatly help

This new MD has good connections with Wizzair. Fingers crossed they return.

Still no November passenger figures in , however, December have just been published

Bournemouth saw 34 , 770 passengers use the airport up finally by 9 % !!

Strange set of figures as all the Canaries are well down averaging about 64 % or 123 passengers per flight , wondering if these are possible wrong figures ?

Ryanair new service to Paphos averaged about 145 passengers per flight which was twice a week , while Alicante and Malaga performed very well with an extra flight added to the ALC service this season

Geneva with Easy jet saw just over 4 ,000 use the service in Dec , down slightly on last year but nothing to worry about , can't compare with SOU as no figures available yet

No figures available for all 7 Santa charters either, which could also push the numbers up a bit

Other news is that Hays travel is operating 2 day trips to Venice in April using a TUI B 738 , although not unusual, this is being organized by Stephen Bath of Bath Travel who sold out to Hays 3 years ago. He is testing the water again this time in cooperation with Hays travel themselves who are selling the seats . If this proves popular, which i don't doubt, more flights could be operated in the Autumn and next year . In the hay day of day trips from BOH over 7,000 passengers booked in a season

Hays have also added a Barbados cruise charter again for Jan 2020 using a TUI B 787 , this year's trip sold out within 4 months of going on sale

Flew BOH to ALC last Saturday and was very impressed with the airport despite the sprint to the aircraft in the rain. Facilities are impressive for the size of the airport, and staff were helpful and cheerful. Security was a real pleasure compared to MAN. Certainly deserves to develop a wider range of destinations.

Hi

I see the Bath family is at it again with a day trip to Venice at Easter with a 737-800. Best of luck to him.

Hopefully this will indeed happen, the future looks alot more promising now, unlike the seemingly stagnating days under MAG ownership. RCA together with the airports new MD have made a good start on things since its take over. BOH has a massive potential for growth in all areas of aviation, which will be tapped into by RCA, time will obviously tell but things are slowly heading in the right direction at the moment.

Wicked - thanks for posting otherwise I would not have noticed this sooner - just booked 3 seats as a family surprise - awesome !!

Last time with Bath/Palmair we did Cairo and Luxor day trips - good old days on a Monarch 757 - This time a 738 of TOM but hot brekkie and hot dinner both ways included - Bath are selling 175 seats out 189 on both flights - I guess the other seats are for Bath Family/staff, tour guides and Press etc....

Dropped the folks off at the airport today and 3 of the 5 flights for the day were all scheduled to depart within 5 minutes of each other. Fairly predictably there were long queues for security and supposedly a 15 minute wait on the apron in the wind before being able to board. Surely spreading the departure times would suit all- pax, crew and the airport.
Logic and reasoning- it’ll never catch on.

Possibly only employing the staff for a short period of time works out cheaper than staff all day.

N707ZS I understand having the flights grouped so as to be able to focus the staff requirement but two flights at 1220 and one at 1225 when you only have 5 flights all day is a little excessive.

Yes, it makes thhings simple for staffing at BOH, but if flights were originating elsewhere (Geneva for example) it may well be down to efficient aircraft utilization and European slot availability. If BOH want the business, they need to meet the needs of the aircraft operators even if it creates pressure in security screening area. Just be thankful that the airport is open and can accommodate the the airlines.
