As we move into a new decade hopefully Bournemouth will continue to flourish and expand under there new owners Rigby who seem to have really come up trumps so far

New for 2020 so far is mostly coming from TUI where as 2019 was Ryanair

Zante and Skiathos are new destinations with TUI while Corfu sees an extra flight as does Antalya with Freebird , Barbados cruise flights also upgraded to a TUI B 789

A 2 aircraft base also starts in May when 2 TUI B738 will operate Fri - Sun

In the winter 2020 /21 TUI are re introducing SSH and an extra TFS flight is also added to 3 a week

Ryanair continue with exactly the same schedule as summer 19 except the LPA service which is seasonal now due closure of the base . This could have been much worse though considering some other Ryanair bases and routes axed

Finally its the airports top priority to see a business lounge built ready for the start of the summer season

The airport announced a series of open days for public consultation on modernising the airspace. This includes moving entirely to satellite based airspace management by 2024. Pretty good news by the sound of it. Hope it results in reduced distances for approaches and departures.

Isn't this something like SOU had installed on R02 approach?

its a national programme, part of a global modernisation of airspace structure & management. Terrestrial Navigation aids (VOR/DME, NDB) are being withdrawn. All UK airports will be obliged by govt to participate. Southern England is first. More details here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/airspace-modernisation

Using satellites for precision navigation guidance where ILS is not available is a big step forward, but unlikely to replace CAT III ILS for a long while yet.

Lauda

Is lauda happening in summer 20? Wikipedia listed it as a new airline and then it was deleted. But the Ryanair site seems to indicate pretty much all the BOH-PMI flights being operated by Lauda

Lauda is a low cost airline that is now a subsidiary of Ryanair. Ryanair are also partners in another low cost airline Malta Air based in Malta. I think flights for both of these are booked through the Ryanair web site

TUI have added another flight to Dalaman this summer using Freebird A320 on a Thursday evening
This now means there are 2 services to Antayla and 2 to Dalaman throughout the summer a big increase !!

Great news MARKEYD. For BOH to achieve growth from TUI and stability from Ryanair despite all the Boeing MAX issues is very reassuring. Hopefully 2021 will be even more rewarding.

easyJet

Need to get to Geneva in February and searched for flights from BOH. One way fares were between £308 and £456 (depending which Saturday outbound flight you take) !

Needless to say itís doing well

Its actually school half term week so all the Easy jet flights along with all other airlines are " eye watering " prices for Feb from any UK airport not just BOH , so not really an indication

You have to remember that its by charging a fortune for flights when they can it keeps the route open in the (many) quiet days with less than a full 'plane.

Good increase in passenger numbers for Nov up over 40 %

Mainly down to the continuation of Prague and Dublin with Ryanair into a year round service

Prague averaged load factors of 89 % and Dublin lower at 65 %

Krakow continues to perform really well at 93 % and could well do with another flight now but i think any expansion is on hold with Ryanair until the 737 max issue is sorted out

TUI was back on track with good loads on all their services and next winter will see further expansion with another flight to TFS taking it to 3 a week and the re introduction of Sharm

The EZY BOH (and SOU) - GVA only really operates as a SKI flight during the winter months (Very short flying season and sees high prices on some of the few days a week it goes, plus Xmas/NY & half term)
Historically SKI flights were always on weekends only - but now with a say FRI and a MON added for skiers to go for long weekends.

EZY have upped their BOH-GVA frequency to 4 or 5 flights a week so it must be doing very well.

December 2019

Finally the December CAA statistics have been released for Bournemouth.

There was a 27% increase over December 2018 to 44,293 giving an annual total of 803,307. This is the first year since 2009 that they have broken the 800,000 mark and 19% up on 2018. Hopefully similar growth again next year.
