Apparently BA are rotating some of their stored fleet with the active fleet. Expect another 744 to fly down to BOH soon.

I think one has flown in the last month so “active” is pushing it. Heavy flying is restricted to Boeing twins and a single A350 flight at the moment. Possibly scheduled maintenance?

BA have been putting a 747 on the JNB route this past week.

The BEA liveried A319 landed this morning, presumably for storage.

Looks like a swap with G-EUPU going the other way.

Bournemouth handled 22,876 pax in March 2020 down 42%. Still managing to maintain a year to date figure of 802,377 in March 2020 which was a surprise.

PPE Flights

Interesting overview of the PPE operation here: https://www.thetraveltrunk.net/europ...-ppe-supplies/

apparently the fleet increasing to 5 A340-600 dedicated aircraft, and expected to continue to the end of the year...

Interesting that Paul Stoddart speaks as though the A340 are operated by them and are their aircraft. Whilst indeed they are ex Virgin A340s, they are registered in Malta and operated by Maleth Aero

Operated by Maleth Aero on behalf of European? Like many companies using ACMI? Its probably a complicated way that European could step up so fast to provide the contract cover, Maleth already had a A340 on their AOC so adding further examples is straight forward, Maleth are also an ACMI specialist. Aircraft have to be registered where the AOC is based, hence the Malta regs, as Maleth have a Malta AOC... although I had always thought Maleth was in fact a British company using a Malta subsidiary for AOC purposes. Complicated, but easy?!

Note that Maleth's earlier A340 is 9H-PGS (=Paul G. Stoddart). They also had 9H-PSI (=Paul Stoddart 1) so European and Maleth are somehow connected.

Every cloud

While UK airports are still subject to a devastating loss of passenger traffic, dedicated cargo flights have increased. Only a handful of airports including EMA & SEN are likely to see more freight this year than has been usual. Its looking like one airport, Bournemouth, will break all freight records compared to its past performance because of the PPE flights, if these continue as currently planned, the record should be broken in the coming 2-3 weeks.

Who’d have predicted that!! I’m still stunned by the sight of the stored BA fleet at BOH, which even though diminished, is still substantial.

Crazy times

Berlin?

Berlin Brandenburg is appearing in the drop down menu on the easyJet app when you select Bournemouth as a departure airport. Same thing is happening for Southampton (please see my post on that thread for more details). Could be interesting to watch...

TUI announces restart from 11th July but from only three UK airports and currently to only eight destinations!

Quote:- "Flights will be available from Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham, with the company planning to fly from a further two airports by the end of July, as well as increasing the number of destinations offered to 19".

The "restart" plot thickens.

It's interesting that they give no idea when flights will resume from Bournemouth or many other regional airports.
Therefore that suggests to me that BOH pax booked on any summer flights currently have no aircraft to fly them anywhere!!!
This sounds like an interesting development just when you thought that some kind of normal service might resume shortly!

''IF''

Planning to operate, and ''if''....
mrshubigbus-
All very nice of course - and I see that the TUI Airlines thread has gone into meltdown with pontificates galore from our esteemed armchair CEO's but sorry no (that means no) package holidays will operate from anywhere until HM Govt's FCO travel advisory is removed...Wake me up when that gets lifted.

A poster on the TUI thread did state that when a charter aircraft arrives at say Palma with upwards of 200 pax on board, then parks on a remote stand so needs coaches to get to the the terminal, then the baggage claim scrum in the terminal - Do we really think that social distancing here will be at the forefront...Yes I can really see that.

Latest update

TUI

Now planning to only operate for the rest of the season to the following destinations, a full winter programme starts in Nov
Palma on Tue/ Sat
Lanzarote Thu
Corfu Fri
Dalaman Sun
Antayla Sat

Ryanair

Started today to Malaga and gradually building up to a small operation for the rest of the summer to 12 destinations
The winter schedule has been amended slightly with Malta just 1 service a week and Las Palmas cancelled . The summer 2021 is slowly being added now . Looks like BOH has escaped quite well given the scale of some cut backs with TUI and Ryanair at other UK airports but obviously things are still very fluid
