Also, just because MAG get on the phone to an airline doesn’t mean they will want to/can operate to MAN.

-Will demand be long term?
-Is the airline in a state where it is able to take a punt on the route, particularly on the basis its home base is in a green zone. Not to mention the associated costs of serving a new station.
-A route is rarely instantaneously profitable. It takes time to build up to profit.
-The teams at both the airline and airport network throughout the year through trade events, including virtually too.
-Just because a route doesn’t come to fruition doesn’t mean there hasn’t been an effort on the part of MAG.
-Ultimately, it’s the airline that decides.

I personally don’t foresee an airlift type of operation to green destinations to enable folk to go away. There will be the traditional European destinations that will start to trickle onto the green list and operations will ramp up. We could potentially see tour ops putting some adhoc capacity on to some US routes but remember, they too will need some sort of operational structure in place to support that too.

Yes. Their application to be part of the joint venture was approved at the end of last year.

I am assuming this is now a dead duck after Pakistan and Bangladesh have been added to the red route list.

if you are referring to Thursday it's because Pakistan has been declared a 'Red' country by the UK government. This means that in order to avoid compulsory hotel isolation passengers must have returned before 4am today (Friday). The result was a series of extra charter flights, by PIA, to accommodate the number of passengers wishing to return before the deadline.

Not operated by PIA aircraft as these are presently not allowed to operate into the UK. Chartered airlines included Wamos, Jordan Aviation, Hi-Fly, Enter Air (not sure they flew to MAN but they did BHX, STN and LGW).

Thank you Musket90 for that clarification on my previous post.
From memory Manchester had flights operated by Euroatlantic (2), Gullivair, Icelandair, Hi fly (2), Jordan Aviation (2) and Wamos (2).

So, now thats out of the way, it's going to get very quiet at MAN as the pax from/to Pakistan were the only ones keeping the ME3 going.

Looks like another security balls up, whilst only handling 5% of normal passenger loads.

Given the excess slack in the current airline schedules, you'd think in this case they (the airlines) may have held the aircraft and avoided the negative publicity, both for themselves & the airport?

Although I'm sure the schedules are constantly changing, does anyone know which routes the MAN based TUI 787s will be used on presuming a restart is allowed on May 17th?

Thanks in advance.

FR new route MAN-SDR

Ryanair launch Manchester - Santander 2 x weekly Thurs & Sun from 1st July (Fri & Sun from start Nov). Looks like it's year round. On sale now.

Nice to see a new route launched and access to this part of Spain (Cantabria) from MAN.

I think this route could do very well..Some say Cantabria is one of the best parts of Spain with Santander being ideal for a long weekend away..Thanks for the update.

Just for information, have just been in a meeting and there are no plans to open T3, it will remain in this position until the numbers are up. T2 is still looking for a June 21st opening.

I understand it should be the new part - although how much of the old will still be in use is another question.
