"This is not the end, it is not even the beginning of the end, but it is perhaps the end of the beginning."

Demand at LBA will fall back towards natural demand as inducement under the previous owners is reduced. Expect the passenger numbers to flatline at best and could easily enter negative territory in 2018. We have seen this same principle at Prestwick, Blackpool and Teesside to name but a few airports. In the next two years we will see why no extra apron has been constructed.

It is an extremely exciting time for the Yorkshire and North East region.

Just to add to the NQY-LBA comment above. This mustn’t be the E95 operating the route as BE currently only “base” one aircraft at NQY and that’s an E95 not 75.

Off the top of my head those timings would also fit with the route being operated between the 2nd and 3rd daily LGW rotations.

So quite a capacity hike on the route.

But the E195s are leaving the fleet and E175 replacing them.

I believe they will be gone by 2020 with 1 left by summer 2019. Whether that plan has changed i don't know.

Leeds 6 has been “Ppruned” and is now visible and locked. This thread is now significantly “on the radar” and any repetition of the behaviour that resulted in the premature closure of the previous thread will result in the closure of the topic. If you want to report a post use the little warning triangle at the foot of the blue box that comprises the left side of the post in question.

Well LBA is definitely still growing year on year, that is a fact!
It has been confirmed today that the airport broke the 4 million passenger figure for the first time with 4,078,069 passengers passing through the terminal during the 12 months of 2017..

Anyone see the new chief exec on Look North?

Claims he wants to double passenger numbers and get someone like Emirates in there.

The journey to and from the airport will be a right laugh if he manages to achieve it. I'm sure all of Yorkshire are waiting with baited breath to spend 15 hours crawling through Horsforth to take advantage.

We all know about the surface access issues and the road plans which will not be solved by the airport. Any thoughts on what would have to happen inside the fence to cater for 7 million and whether the new owners are any better placed for capital than Bridgepoint?

Airlines, Airports, and Routes. If RAC routeplanner is of more interest to certain individuals then go and use that site. If you want to set up a website devoted to roads around Leeds with barely a tenuous link to the airport, then go and do it. This thread is on probation, and once again it is Airlines, Airports and Routes on the Professional Pilots Rumour Network. Either this thread gets back on focus or it goes.

No Thomas Cook Airlines Base

Apologies if already posted in a previous thread - But has there been confirmation that the planned Thomas Cook Airlines base for the summer is no longer going ahead?

The only flights now showing for the Thomas Cook holiday group are - PMI operated by Air Europa and both AYT and DLM operated by Thomas Cook Airlines on a W-pattern.

The planned based unit was originally expected to operate the following;

Leeds/Bradford – Antalya eff 03MAY18 2 weekly A320
Leeds/Bradford – Dalaman eff 05MAY18 2 weekly A320
Leeds/Bradford – Enfidha eff 01MAY18 2 weekly A320
Leeds/Bradford – Larnaca eff 02MAY18 1 weekly A320
Leeds/Bradford – Mahon 25MAY18 – 05OCT18 1 weekly A320
Leeds/Bradford – Palma Mallorca 24MAY18 – 01OCT18 2 weekly A320
Leeds/Bradford – Tenerife South eff 29MAY18

And the downward spiral continues.

So after only operating the route for 4 months since taking it over from Jet2, it looks as though Flybe are to axe the 6x weekly LBA-DUS route as from March 18th as the route is no longer on sale.

The LBA-BHD service is also to being reduced from 29x weekly to 23x weekly. Losing both the weekday mid morning and Friday evening rotations.

The PSO service between LBA-NQY has a reduced schedule from 5x weekly last summer down to 3x weekly this summer 18.

LBA-DUS still available on the Flybe website for random dates looked at in July, October and end of March.
Might have been a glitch on their website as when I went on this morning no destinations from anywhere were showing on the drop down list.

Yeah understand LBA-DUS dissappeared due to a so called "systems error" on Flybe's website. At least it's back sale and not another loss.

Is this really a PSO?

OK - so start up support, and not a PSO as such.
