Bournemouth handled 69 , 273 passengers in October up 1 % !! ( or just one extra flight to be honest )

TUI had good load factors to finish there season with , loads around the 96 % mark on all there flights .
Naples has performed really well as a new route as has the extra Lanzarote service this year

Ryanair was also high in the mid 170 pax per flight average .
Krakow the new route has done really well and boosted numbers throughout the year

Easy Jet started again today to Geneva , will be really interesting to see how this pans out with SOU . Interestingly the prices have remained at least twice that of SOU so far , so wait and see on that one

Not going to get into the discussion of scheduled flights again re the new owners but I personally feel they need to go back down the road of getting increased charter flights back in
TUI should be pushing I think for a 2nd based aircraft like Cardiff for the summer season or at least getting 3 rotations a day out of the based aircraft .
Prehaps the Rigby group may consider night openings in the summer which TUI could do with

Good luck to them

Good news!

Let's see what November passenger numbers are like.

I think Cardiff is a great example of what Bournemouth can aim to achieve - in terms of charter/leisure potential. The catchment area volume is similar and the actual passenger volumes on certain leisure routes are already comparable. For example, in 2016 Cardiff handled around 109,000 passengers on its Palma route compared to Bournemouth with 115,000. Some other examples below:

Palma from CWL 109,000 BOH 115,000
Malaga from CWL 82,500 BOH 83,700
Faro from CWL 37,000 BOH 54,000
Barcelona/Girona from CWL 30,000 BOH 44,000
Gran Canaria from CWL 19,000 BOH 35,446
Alicante from CWL 93,000 BOH 65,000
Tenerife from CWL 78,000 BOH 47,000

However the distance between CWL and BRS together with the market potential for scheduled services (i.e inbound Business to a capital city) is very different when compared with BOH and SOU. For example it takes 1 hour 10 mins to drive from Cardiff to Bristol Airport. Compare that with just 35 mins from Bournemouth to Southampton Airport. This would suggest that CWL should sustain its own scheduled services to the likes of Dublin, Amsterdam and UK domestic, but BOH can't.

Super Break holidays are set to operate more charters from Bournemouth next summer along with 7 other UK airports

Destinations include Pisa , Tivat , Gibraltar , Verona , Funchal and Akureyri

Flight programme goes on sale soon , no idea at the moment who the airline operating is but this is certainly a step in the right direction in bringing in new destinations albeit only 1 or 2 flights to each destination

The Iceland programme sold out very quickly and Seville is selling well so fingers crossed

Now geography is my top subject and I have a degree in travel and Tourism but even after a search on Google I'm still totally unaware of where TRIVET is!

Any ideas which other Airports please , I'd love to visit Iceland and do some internal flights ( through hugging circular 180 approach onto a short runway with a half cliff at one end ( good video in a fokker 50 of the landing.
I've also wanted to visit Akureri. Stunning FIORD.

Trivet
Might I suggest that it's Tivat, Montenegro. Interesting Airport there and decent scenery IIRC.

I had a feeling it was TIVAT, Montenegro.

Having been to Montenegro myself I can thoroughly recommend a visit to the country as the scenery is beautiful and Kotor is an absolutely wonderful old walled town not for from TIVAT as is BUDVA on the coast with a small walled town reminiscent of a smaller version of Dubrovnik.

Brings back the memories of the late 70's, when I used to see a lot of this part of the world. Tivat was a Yugoslav military airfield in those days, only open for commercial flights on one day each week and only for JAT, Aviogenex and Inex Adria flights.
Budva was destroyed by an earthquake in April 1979 and has been completely rebuilt since. I was there a month after the quake and saw the devastation first hand.

Super Break have started to release there programme of 1 off charters next summer with Verona , Malta , Funchal and Tivat ( careful ) now on sale

At the moment Enter Air is pencilled in to operate these flights but Super Break have also said airline / times etc TBA

These flights look to be like what " Newmarket " did a few years ago were 1 aircraft is operating all these flights and position around the UK after each service , interesting that Super Break have taken over where Newmarket left off last year

Norwich , Exeter , Humberside , Cardiff , Derry , Teeside and Leeds look to be the other airports being used throughout next summer

nice 4 day trips on offer but they are not cheap at all - 6/7/800 quid
no doubt the old Palmair crowd will snap them up though - I'm tempted but they are rather pricey

edit madeira added 7 day break

Not doing themselves any favours making it so difficult to discover how to make a booking!
