Both are acceptable spellings, Gerona is actually more correct as it is the Spanish, Girona is the anglicised version.
Yes, both are correct. Gerona is the Spanish version, Girona is actually the Catalan version.

Thank you for correcting me, I overlooked that, it is therefore of course very accurate. It does seem to be the preferred English spelling too though. Regardless, I think we’ve established Gerona is very much in Spain.

Gerona Airport GRO was it's name from when the airport opened in the mid 1960's for Costa Brava holidays.

In more recent times with the strong Catalan Independence movement the local name used now and is Girona, and as mentioned Girona is now widely used by tour companies and airlines alike.

Like at IBZ Ibiza - the locals call it Aeroport d'Eivissa, and this is displayed on the Terminal building in big letters, as is at Girona, Costa Brava.

Hope this link works - some nice old photos of Gerona Airport 1960's

Verona would be a nice summer addition to BOH - Popular for Lake Garda holidays (Inghams, Citalalia, TUI all have strong markets there and have own flights from BRS (Neos 738)
and SOU, but have FlyMaybe just ditched SOU-VRN for S20?
-- unless Inghams are doing their own BE charters as they show holidays selling SOU-VRN on both WEDS & SATS for S20

It doesn’t look like it is an actual Lauda service, it has a Ryanair flight number. So maybe Lauda are just operating some services for them given the aircraft situation, and they have excess 320’s?

Lauda is owned by Ryanair and they have transferred a couple of rotations to Lauda at BRS on the PMI servixe. At BOH they wont transfer routes to Lauda and dilute Ryanair rotations,so if Lauda operates PMI then Ryanair will drop the routes. Nothing gained really unless FR are to operate something else from BOH,and I hope they do.Also be good to see a fresh airline in BOH AS in A320 aircraft in Lauda colors.

Lauda now confirmed to Palma

it looks like the lack of Max aircraft has led to confirmed use of Lauda capacity by Ryanair for Summer 20 on BOH/PMI

RYR results announced this week make clear that Lauda facing profit headwinds in Austria and Germany, good to see the capacity redeployed to more profitable use on the BOH market.

One of the Ryanair Bristol-Palma rotations each week next summer will be operated by a Lauda aircraft, albeit under a FR flight number.

Conversely, Lauda's Vienna-Bristol route next summer will see one of the rotations each week operated by a Ryanair aircraft with an OE flight number.

Flybe to ditch Southampton summer routes

Flybe, rebranding as Virgin Connect next year, has scrapped eight summer routes from Southampton in a blow to the regional airport.

Malaga, Alicante, Palma, Faro, Biarritz, Nantes, Bordeaux and Bastia in Corsica will not operate in summer 2020.

The airport said the decision reflects the need for it to have a longer runway so it can accept a wider range of aircraft. It recently submitted plans to extend its runway.

While Southampton services have been reduced, Flybe is adding seven new routes from London Southend and one from Manchester.

It will launch flights for the first time from Southend to Belfast City, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, Isle of Man and Jersey. It already flies from Southend to Caen, Groningen, Newquay and Rennes.

It is also introducing flights from Manchester to Stuttgart.

Seats will go on sale this week for Flybe's 2,500 flights a week across the UK and regional mainland Europe next summer.

Additional summer routes will be announced shortly, it said.

Southend Airport is owned by the Stobart Group, one of its new co-owners. It will offer 214 flights a week on 10 routes from the London airport.

The Southend flights will be operated by three of Flybe's own 78-seat De-Havilland Q400 turboprops based in Belfast City, Edinburgh and Glasgow alongside two 70-seat ATR aircraft based at Southend.

I think the above 2 posts are on the wrong thread for a start


September passenger figures are finally out and Bournemouth handled 93 , 391 passengers up a huge 23 %

TUI had near full loads on all there flights including new destinations Heraklion and Kefalonia which finished the season with an average of 183 pax per flight

Ryanair as expected also did well with high load factors especially the usual Spanish destinations

Prague , new this year saw an average load of 170 pax per flight and Dublin about 151 pax

Ryanair still have 4 gaps to fill on the summer schedule and still dont seem to have filled the gap left by Gerona
Obviously at the moment LPA is also ending at the end of March with the base closing so unlikely to be filled now as the BOH based aircraft is fully committed

Sorry about that, how to start a new thread isn't exactly clear on the page. Being so close to BOH will this encourage Ryanair to increase its capacity on some, not all of these 'sunshine' destinations?

The BOH and SOU threads have been running for years on here, so not sure why a new one is needed?

BOH will need to compete even more seriously in the coming years if SOU gets its runway extension approved. If not, Bournemouth could end up with a carbon copy of 'Southend' on its doorstep. Southend seems to be very comfortably cruising to 10million passengers a year with Ryanair, easyJet and Wizzair operations.

Southend is effectively another London airport with increasing demands for more routes etc,it is limited to its runway length,but the owners and management were able to see this,and implement airside improvements in recent years,thus resulting in a viable flourishing airport. SOU should have done the same in recent years,and would probably be in the same flourishing position as Southend by now. However we know this hasn't happened,and the question is, have SOU owners left it to late with the environment issues dominating decisions.

Aer Lingus

Aer Lingus will be announcing Dublin-Bournemouth soon as I have just checked the ACL initial coordination report where it says Bournemouth will be a new route!

Ryanair will also Increase Dublin service too!

I am sorry but i very much doubt if Aer Lingus will return to BOH , Ryanair will wipe the floor with them , there is just not the demand here for 2 carriers on the same route
They have already tried the route but unsuccessful a few years ago

I think that Ryanair will however make adjustments to some of the summer schedule soon as they have an aircraft sat on the ground 4 days of the week for over 5 hrs between flights ( ex Gerona route )

Don't take what you see in the ACL reports as gospel, especially at this stage. There's an awful lot of provisional and tactical slot booking that goes on between airlines or across multiple airports.

Agreed - it’s far more likely that they are using Bournemouth as a holder for Southampton. Southampton airport will be doing everything they can to move away from reliance on Flybe
