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.

Kruger Aviation

Apparently Kruger Aviation have intensions on building a facility at BOH, anyone know or heard of them? Are they possibly a similar outfit to Gama? (maintenance etc)

Still no passenger figures available for Nov / Dec in relation to the 7 Santa charters and the Bergen / Barbados flights
The Santa flights did, in fact, go full on nearly all occasions in Dec which should add another 2500 passengers to the figures

2019 / 20 winter charters are being added slowly and an increase from Transun holidays and Omega will all help

Unfortunately, after 25 years of operating it looks like Turin ski charters for next winter with Crystal Ski have been canceled as not bookable after this winter . These first started with Palmair Bae146
Also, it looks like Easy jet to Geneva are not continuing into April this year as still not on sale from either BOH or SOU

Flybe will wind up airline if shareholders don't back sale

Flybe directors have warned they will be forced to wind up the airline if shareholders do not approve a sale to a consortium led by Virgin Atlantic and Stobart Air.

In a statement on Thursday, they said they believe the terms of the acquisition remain in the best interests of Flybe and warned shareholders their shares are likely to be worthless if it doesn't go through.

The consortium, Connect Airways, has offered 2.2 million for the airline's parent, which Flybe admitted was 'disappointingly low'.

Flybe has already agreed to sell Connect its operating assets - the airline and the website - for 2.8 million in a deal which doesn't require shareholder approval.

But on March 4 shareholders are due to vote on the sale of the parent company.

The directors' statement described a challenging air travel market.

"There have been a number of airlines who have gone out of business over the past year and several others have issued profit downgrades," it said.

"While Flybe had made tangible progress in delivering its strategy, maintaining momentum had been hampered by the challenging market environment.

"Ongoing fuel and currency impacts presented particularly significant headwinds for Flybe as did the rapid and significant tightening on Flybe's liquidity from the card acquirer market.

"In addition, the general economic outlook and conditions had impacted the business leading to a further weakening in consumer demand, affecting cash, revenues and profit adversely."

I’m sorry I thought this was a group for people who would understand the wider implication of the possible collapse of SOU’s major airline and the possible implication it might have on BOH at some point in the future. But then again I live near BOH not Valencia!

There wont be a collapse of the airline anyway, its been sold as part of the subsidiary agreement to Connect Airways. The shareholder stuff making all the waves at the moment is related to the Flybe plc holding company, which will in essence be an empty shell as of the 22nd February when all the operating assets transfer to Connect.

The Flybe developments will have undoubtedly have significant implications for most UK regional airports, positive and negative, which will probably be significant by the summer 2020 season. The new Flybe owner has said that it wants to concentrate on feed to Virgin Long Haul at LHR and MAN, but not LGW Flybe recently sold their only LGW slots to Vueling. It's also worth remembering that Virgin is 49% owned by Delta, and is now 31% owned by the Air France-KLM group, in which Delta also own 10%. On that basis it is likely that the new Flybe (Virgin) will be operating more domestic routes and flights into LHR and MAN, and its probable that links from UK regions to the AF/KLM hubs of CDG and AMS will increase to feed AF/KLM/Delta using Virgin code share. So we can expect new links to both LHR and MAN, which will impact UK & CI airports.That still leaves a good many existing routes that will either survive or fall based on aircraft availability and profitability. Competitors will certainly be after any low hanging fruit, taking advantage of the uncertainties at Flybe meantime. So change, good and bad is ahead, especially at the existing Flybe hubs.I could see Ryanair moving, either directly or indirectly, on some of the Dublin routes, to Cardiff for instance. It is likely too that the return of DUB-BOH, announced at 4/week, will be increased to daily in short order.

SOU will certainly see some big changes too, probably negative initially (a reduction of Flybe flights), but more likely positive longer term - new operators. FF

As a local Dorset resident, I'm fed up of seeing people try and pit both BOH & SOU against each other, they are both good airports that in my opinion compliment each other, also very different airports - comparing the two is like comparing London City to Biggin Hill

Also playing on Flybe's potential demise is a bit sadistic to be honest, especially with the number of jobs at the airline that could be lost & the businesses across the south that would be affected, let's keep a positive frame of mind and hope Flybe's fortune has a positive turn under the new Connect management.

Cheers

Both the two above posts make sense, it's sad to see airlines and airports fail in this unknown economic environment.
Flybe's business model may change, we could se it becoming a feeder to KLM/AIr France/Virgin/Delta at their hubs at CDG/AMS/LHR/LGW/MAN etc from many airports are the country. The odd non-feeder flight may still work such as from the south England to NCL/Scotland as their only competition now is the train, and flying is so much better than a 6-8 hour trip on the train.

Not flown into BOH for about 14 years but as 26 now has "Magic Carpet" Touch down zone lighting, I assume it is Cat III and therefore 400M RVR should not be a problem for an A320.

That's right Dixie. Full Cat III is good for 200m RVR. So much easier than flogging in there with the Herald! (although Ken H probably managed it

Originally TUI had scheduled a Norwegian aircraft to operate one of the weekly summer flights but they have terminated the contract concerned the airline is in trouble. I believe they switched it to a TUI plane which meant NPL couldn't be operated. Hence it's return next year. Also Crete is to be operated by a 752.
