What a very strange agenda. Cardiff is much the same and BAMG havenít had a widebody torched just yet.

Standard practice for any aircraft. Even aircraft parked for a day or two will be treated this way in warmer climates and cockpit shields at all times anytime of the year.

Sunlight (even in winter) can cause extensive screen damage to a glass cockpit as well as cause condensation to build up which could lead to a multitude of problems or even cause fires due reflection from the surfaces.
Then there's protection to maintain value, a sun scorched faded interior will devalue an aircraft massively.

Tricky for Ryanair aircraft then, I understand they don't have window blinds.

Isn't it some (possibly many) of Jet2's older aircraft that don't have window blinds?

Think this conversation needs to move on from possible terrorism from a mesh fence to aircraft window blinds now !!

I agree what you say. Perhaps put all energy into finding a cure for this cornavirus,rather than window blinds.

Well yes, I imagine that finding a cure comes slightly ahead of which BA aircraft are parked where, and when a daily service will start between Bournemouth and New York too!! It is curious how threads shift tack simply as a result of a question (which I asked) simply because I sincerely didn't know. Thanks to those who enlightened me.

TUI have dropped the re introduction of the Sharm el Sheik flight this winter on a Saturday , however an extra flight on Saturday to Tenerife continues , taking the service to 3 a week and Ryanair 1 flight a week

TUI have also dropped the extra services to DLM and AYT operated by Freebird this summer , just once a week operated by based TUI. aircraft now , no surprise at all

Things are going to take a heck of a long time to get back to normal

Crystal ski have added Innsbruck back on to the list of departures for winter skiing ( tentatively i might add )

Flights are operated by the based TUI B 738 on a Saturday am before operating later now to TFS which is also an extra flight added for the winter

It's very encouraging to hear about Innsbruck for the winter 20/21 season. I am still hopeful - at this stage - that summer 21 will be similar to summer 20 prior to Coronavirus. This could change the longer it goes on, and i'm speaking specifically about BOH.

However, the summer 20 season is going to be pretty much a write off I think. I would be very surprised if any flying on any big scale returns before October - other than those VFR routes like Krakow and Dublin, possibly Alicante.

Coincidence I know but how fitting that the registration should end EAL - that being the previous name of European Air Charter who were based I believe in BOH. Just a pointless observation on my part.

Not so pointless. European Aviation/European Skybus continues at BOH although the charter airline folded late in 2008. Aircraft are bought and sold on - older 737s and A340s.
Happy memories of European Aviation - EAL and EAC. Great shame the airline folded.

They seem to be doing alot with there A340 fleet atm, the 2x NHS livery A/C are back and forth with PPE on a weekly basis. BOH in general is quite a busy place some days, is a wide mix of aircraft using the airfield, all income which hopefully helps towards a good recovery once we see the back of covid.

Ryanair looks like it has reduced its flying on BOH routes for the S20 period.

Frequency is now as follows:

Palma 4 weekly to Oct
Alicante 2 weekly, 3 in August to March 21
Girona 2 weekly to Oct
Malaga 3 weekly, 4 in August to October
Murcia 2 weekly, 3 in August to October
Tenerife 1 weekly
Dublin 2 weekly, 4 in August, back down to 2 for the rest of the S20 and then 4 again for W20/21
Malta 1 weekly, 2 in Aug onwards on to March 2021
Krakow 2 weekly
Faro 2 weekly, 3 weekly in Aug onwards, back down to 2 for W20/21
Prague 2 weekly
Paphos 1 weekly

It was always going to be a reduced schedule given the circumstances , in fact itís a far better offering than from most other UK airports

Going into winter 20/21 itís the same frequency as last winter but again all can change at any time, will have to see how this plays out as regards Ryanair moving itís 1 aircraft out from BOH as they are still in consultations around the UK to closing bases

If they close the base there is still considerable w-pattern flying to keep BOH above water.

MaRKEYD do we know what TUIís intention is for the remaining summer season at BOH?
