Next year a 787 and they do get TUI 767 so those would be better served by an airbridge.
Plus the airport by its own admission is chasing long haul .
So logic might be to have an Airbridge .
Based on the chicken and egg theory .
If that makes sense .
Besides they wouldn't be making these changes if they weren't a prerequisite for some airlines ..

It's looking likely that another scheduled cargo contract could be in the offing in the not too distant future.

TUI adding/reinstating Cancun weekly from Summer 2020 on the 787, this in addition to the weekly Sanford for 2019.

Just Puerto Plata and then its as good as 2008.

TUI 787 visiting on Nov 8th inbound from AGP at 22:40.

TUI7483 can't find any info as to why. No information on outbound sector.

It's the end of a TUI/Marella cruise season and it will be bringing pax back to the UK. Nothing more. There is no outbound flight other than the normal service on the 737. The aircraft will reposition back to another base after arrival more than likely.

New Krakůw services with Wizz air announced 3 times weekly effective 2 May 2019. Pretty strong offering now from DSA. Good vote of confdience in the airport. Amazes me that Ryanair doesn’t see any use for a base here.

LBA offers flights to Krakow as well as Gdansk, Warsaw etc, plus many more routes. I cannot see Ryanair starting anything again out of DSA for the foreseeable future.
Depending on how Brexit works out it might be that Wizzair cut back some flights.

Given DSAs improving fortunes across commercial, freight and GA, I am surprised to hear that it continues to haemorrhage millions per year. The claim by DTVA that the reason for that airport axing charter flights was down to them having to subsidise said flights to the tune of £10k per rotation was largely ridiculed, but it seems DSA is living proof that the theory is correct

I hope things continue to improve for you guys!

Wizz continues to be a hit at DSA, 38 departures weekly at its peak next summer plus some A321 services. Katowice and the new Krakow service running concurrently is quite impressive. I know Lviv was discussed years ago, so with Wizz Ukraine restarting it may happen.

Bucharest 3xweekly
Budapest 3xweekly
Cluj 3xweekly
Debrecen 2xweekly
Gdansk 4xweekly (5xweekly during summer)
Katowice 6xweekly (Daily during summer)
Krakow 3xweekly
Poznan 3xweekly
Riga 3xweekly
Vilnius 2xweekly
Warsaw 3xweekly (4xweekly during summer)

On top of the above Wizz are now basing another A321 in Bucharest so that will be going from 3 to 5xweekly.

If Brexit wasn't happening then Wizz would continue to exand but after Brexit and the ending of free movement how sustainable is their network from DSA and other UK airports?

Well given that half of the offerings are routed to previously unserved destinations that the airport was seeking for anyone to take ' city breaks ' or business visits
The rest I think it's safe to say that the migrant population will be staying as part of the Brexit deal protects the right to remain in whatever country after Brexit .
I doubt the Airline that had had its tough times financially would open new routes if it didn't think they could fill a large Airbus .
Besides one route is going to be an A321 and from 3x weekly to five X weekly but with my illness affecting my memory I cannot recall which route .
However I'd hope to see the mainstream Irlinez buy up the Airbus A220-100/300 on routes that don't quite fill the Airbus 320/21 etc

Brexit or not, the usual pattern when new members join is for migration to increase as people from the new members look to increase their income by moving and then for it to decrease as living standards increase "back home" - this pattern has been followed by all accessions back to Spain and Portugal. The relative value of the pound and the Euro also has an impact.

Donít know about yields, but every time Iíve been on the route itís always been over half full. The last being 68. A fair number checking in hold luggage too.

No. TUI have operated them on winter charters to the Caribbean for the past few years. Infact one was in just a few weeks ago from Malaga too.

From what I have seen/been told, all the Flybe routes are doing well - some for the best loads on the Flybe network. What happens moving forward with their takeover however remains to be seen....

If the routes have been performing well, DSA will hopefully still feature in the plans of the rebranded FlyBe
