CAA stats out for July - BHD 480, London City 182, Newquay 274. Nothing showing for ABZ.

Those London City figures sound awful - did anyone count how many flights did they actually operate in July? The Newquay flights were twice a week compared to the LCY flights which were supposed to be twice a day!!

Newquay looks to be about 17 passengers per flight on average and Belfast about 12.

That's an average of less than 5 pax/flight if so.... it surely can't be that bad?

I'm sorry, but why would anyone be flying to London City right now when the city is pretty much closed compared to its usual hustle and bustle?

A good point - but in that case, why would you fly an aircraft back and forward at less than 10% loadfactor to prove the point?!

Depends who is proving the point, the airline or the mayor/airport.

The figures are even worse than that because the first flight had a load of freebies on it (Tory MPs) and another couple were closed off for the Middlesbrough team travelling to/from Millwall.

July CAA stats:

Terminal passengers: 1,429 - down 89% v prior year
  • Aberdeen: 319
  • Belfast City: 480
  • Cardiff: 66 (charter?)
  • London City: 222
  • Newquay: 274
I reckon this makes the loads on the flights in July as follows:
  • Aberdeen: 6.3 pax per flight
  • Belfast City: 10.4
  • London City: 5.8
  • Newquay: 17.1
Perhaps no surprise LCY is going, especially with LHR starting. NQY seems pretty good given it was announced at the last minute.

I think Eastern can be happy with that at short notice and during the current climate. The Jetstreams really are proving their worth right now Id say.

The figures are unsurprisingly shocking. The frustrating thing is the blatant waste of money. Most carriers are cutting frequencies and routes as the world is gripped in a crisis. It became obvious the (launch of the) routes should have been cancelled until things stabilise. Even the heaviest used routes are struggling at the moment. I hope these routes will return when things normalise, but at the moment they look an opportunity wasted to fund the ego of 1 person.

That’s some serious losses on those routes there! Remember that the advertised prices were very cheap so it’s not like Eastern of old whereby pax were paying 200 a trip. I just can’t see this lasting much longer at these sorts of figures. Of course, the next chapter is trying to fill a jet to LHR which increases costs even more! It’s all a bit Mickey Mouse.

Flights will operate weekly from Inverness during June, July, September and October, from Teesside the flights will operate over July, August and September.
Flights operated by Albastar on a Sunday afternoon - "We are a fully licensed and bonded tour operator with licence number 678 issued by the Spanish Tourism Ministry, this licence provides the protections and rights applying to package holidays under EU Directive 2015/2302. JetsGo Holidays, as required by EU law, has protection in place to refund your payments in the unlikely event of JetsGo Holidays insolvency, and, where necessary, for your repatriation.". Interesting to see how that works post Brexit.

JetsGo seem to be offering flights this weekend and next, despite the quarantine restrictions.

JetsGo Holidays was established in 2015, not be be confused with Jet2 Holidays - Jetsgo and Jet2 Hols share similar colours in branding style....

I was looking at the JetsGo website (link above), which only offers Majorca from INV and MME.

Does JetsGo have any relation to the Jetxtra outfit that existed up at HUY once upon a time?

Nothing regarding the flights on the airport departure board........ how very strange.
