EasyJet are continuing into April again with flights to Geneva

Obviously not daily like last year as SOU is also continuing into April , however the flights are 5 times a week with 2 flights on a Sat , aircraft are all A320 excepet the service on a Tue remains an A319

Fares remain quite a lot higher than SOU on many days but look to be selling very well

Great news but why the delay this season in putting April up later?

Bournemouth handled 26 , 127 passengers in November down 6 %
This is down to Ryanair not operating at the start of Nov a number of school half term flights that this year feels into the end of Oct

Also Ryanair has dropped the LPA route this winter which although had very low loads all added to the figures

On a plus TUI averaged 92 % loads and Ryanair 90 %

The P&O Barbados charter with TUI 787 was also full up

Been looking in Jan at easyJet prices from BOH to GVA and they all seem to be at least twice / three times the price as that of SOU which on some days are selling at £ 8 . 99 from SOU !

Hays Travel have added a Barbados charter for Jan 2019 taking the number of fly cruises to 4 now for winter 2018/19 with P & O and Hays , all flights out there are with TUI 787

Santa holidays have added an extra flight to Lapland taking the number of trips up to 6 which is also good news

Large increase in holidays to Lapland over the December period

Last year saw 5 trips this winter there are 8 trips with Canterbury Travel and Santa Holidays covering the extra flights .
Canterbury are new to Bournemouth at the expense of Southampton it looks like with 2 new flights added .
Santa holidays have also added an additional flight and cancelled the SOU flight and are using Titan Airways instead of Small Planet

as much as to be expected,Bournemoth taking up the charters,while Southampton plods on with mostly domestic.However the loss of Volotea as a weekly service coupled to stagnated new routes from Southampton should be a wake up call to the owners and management. If Flybe cut back further, who would replace them at SOU,with its limited airside facilities?.

It's best to keep that topic to the Southampton thread as we don't really want a BOH v SOU thread:-)

It's quite simple to understand why the Lapland flights are better suited to BOH due to the opening hours at SOU as many of those flights have run late and with some in the past having to divert to BOH due to SOU being closed, we're only looking at a couple of flights so no big loss to SOU only a gain for BOH regarding a couple of extra flights.

Flybe from Southampton is more than just domestic but let's leave it at that as this is the BOH thread!

The fact that charters have to divert to Bournemouth due to restricted hours at SOU just highlights the fact that Southampton lacks the ability to operate these type of flights. All losses of flights to other airports are important.I close this point on this blog and return to Southampton line.Dont get me wrong I fly annually from Bournemouth,a great efficient airport on our doorstep.

good to see the A340 arrive at Bournemouth and Mr Mckonkey said we would never have a 747 at Bournemouth

Just out of curiosity who is Mr Mckonkey?

Not sure what your trying to make a point of but surely your aware that B747's have been seen at BOH many times over the last 20 years or so.

CAA stats for Dec 17 still not released

Ryanair are carrying out a review of their single aircraft bases across Europe. Is Bournemouth considered a single aircraft base despite 3 aircraft being required for Summer season flying?

Tried to book BOH-KRK in March 2019 but flights are 'sold-out'

Ryanair W18/19 is on sale already with a single based aircraft requirement. March is not released yet as it seems to be 11 months out only (Feb is on-sale)

It is single aircraft. If we use you logic Glasgow is a 12 aircraft base as (over summer), 2 aircraft are based there, and 10 more aircraft are used from other bases?

How likely is BOH to survive this ‘review’ then of single aircraft bases?

I would imagine that the performance of all bases is under constant review, what makes you think there is a special 'single a/c' base review?

Looking at the CAA stats, my back-of-a-fag-packet maths gives an average of 106 pax per flight on the BOH-GVA route in December, and approx 133 per flight from SOU based on MarkeyD's maths on the SOU thread. Doesn't give any indication on yields though obviously.

Of course BOU are using the A319 predominantly whereas SOU the A320, and SOU fares have been considerably cheaper due to it being a 1st season. However I cannot see Easy continuing with both airports that are only 30 miles apart and consolidation must be in their thinking. Either that or at least the 2nd BOU Saturday flight transferred to SOU as the route has been successful and seeing that fares only went on sale in July, many punters would have already forward booked with BOU.
