They did this before a few years back, when they based a cruise ship there....

Looks like cruise charters for the Winter season. 4x weekly flights, one each from LGW, MAN and BHX and another from a different U.K. airport each week (including LGW or MAN some weeks)

Yes, the flights will be to feed a ship but they’ve never previously been on a regular basis (normally just a couple of times a year). I’m assuming they’re either basing a Marella ship there for winter or feeding another cruise line like they do at Barbados.

Not quite never. They did a similar programme in Winter 16/17 when a ship was based in Dubai. The majority of those flights were on the 767.

They then moved that ship to the Far East in the years since, but it looks like next winter there will a ship in both Dubai and the Far East.

The only reason I can think us that the finishing work is being done by the new operator of the ex MAEL Hangers

They are usually in service within the week and I`m guessing MAN doesn`t want them sat outside for a week or so

Plenty of room at BHX - sitting on stand 85 but like pabely I though maybe it would go into the MAEL hangar as NEOS have used it recently despite the impending sale.

I believe contracts have been exchanged and a recruitment drive on for engineers. I was hoping TUI would have taken it but never mind.
