Some sensible business decisions by RCA, which could make a big difference to the airports survival long term, making use of the vast underutilised space they have seems a no brainer.

I was told, no way of confirming, that the charge is £250 per airframe per day.

One of those distant days saw 28 arrive, Tridents, 1-11s and Comets, a few years later SAS MD80s and A300s appeared too..

Bit different to the £150 a week I was paying for the L-1011 a few years back....

Remember going to work one morning and counting 35 diversions. No more space to park aircraft.
Disused runway and 17/35 full, north side taxiways full, some on BAC site and a Vanguard by the tower blocking that taxiway.
All of Courtlines 1-11s, Lufthansa 727s and 737s, Dan-Air comets, TMAC CL-44, Tridents, Viscounts, Vanguard, Alitalia DC-9.
Happy days.

BOH saw some impressive growth in Jan’20 up 22% on Jan’19 with over 43,500 pax during the month. Year to date figure stands at over 811,000.

Significant growth on Faro, Krakůw and Las Palmas. Geneva was up 11%. Strong growth on Malta & Barbados.

Oddly, some declines seen on Spain (ALC & AGP) and Canaries (TFS & ACE)

Bournemouth will probably only see 250,000 or 350,000 this year assuming flights resume in July.

Travel will undoubtedly come back but it's probably reset aviation by around 15 years or more. Who knows if a full recovery will be seen in 2021.

February passengers up 23.6%

Final month before the COVID-19 distortion:

February 2020 saw a 23.6% rise to 42,354 pax or 818,920 year to date (20.1% increase on year before)

Biggest growth seen on Las Palmas up 129%, but big gains on Faro, Malta, Alicante, Malaga and Geneva. Dublin did well as did Krakow but Prague seemed to struggle a little with only 2,453 pax. Decline of 3% seen on Tenerife. Huge decline seen on Paphos as Ryanair moved to summer seasonal only.

Such a shame that this positive growth story has now been stopped dead in its tracks by COVID-19 but everyone is in the same boat. Will be interesting to see how much of it comes back after the crisis is over. I believe that leisure travel will come back in a big way but UK domestic may struggle.

You know why Stewy- because that's what SOU does.
Even in this time of global crisis people still seem unable to resist trying to get a dig in at their local rival.

Rivals to some maybe but letís not forget these are ridiculously tough times for all and one thing is for certain, I believe both south coast airports will survive this and come back stronger in the months ahead!

Really! That seems a somewhat diluded view.

BOH will get it's (mainly) holiday/owners abroad destinations back with RYR and TOM
SOU will get some of it's trunk routes back with lower frequencies on (mainly) smaller aircraft
(based upon what we have seen so far before CV-19 took hold)

I think that's the reality we are facing, which I don't see as coming back stronger.

Predictions of recovery take no account of the fact that most people will come out of this crisis financially poorer. When people are poorer the first thing to go are holidays. I am only one week into this and I have already taken a massive financial hit. Remaining prepaid holidays will be taken for this year if allowed but next year I will be curbing my travel plans to save money and will continue to do so in the following years I fear.

As Bournemouth is almost a pure leisure airport it relies on discretionary spending.

Iím not saying this time round will be the same but during the last downturn there was strong evidence that people actually ring fences money for an holiday and that the main holiday was increasingly being seen as more of a necessity as opposed to a luxury.

But, this time round is totally unprecedented. Who can have even an inkling of what will happen ? Whatever happens, we will be faced with changes of cataclysmic effect !
