Scanning over EZY app BHX has flights in January for £26 return, I'm not sure how much lower FR could push this, I suspect we'll see EZY launch from BHD in response. It'll be interesting times ahead if it's true - the potential for domestic growth from BFS has been hinted at recently by FR at a press conference.

In all fairness he does have a point,could they not have brought on something different not already served from Bfs,Malta and Warsaw we know about but offical announcement has not been made,rumoured Birmingham brings 2 routes in direct competition with Easyjet/Jet2,guess we will have to wait and see what happens over next few days.

Thats Ryanair though. They will announce routes in competition with other airlines.

BFS has got other interesting routes from them like Porto, Girona & Valencia. Hurghada being added by easyJet was great also. Dublin even doesnt have any direct service to HRG or SSH

I think it's fair to say Ryanair are taking safety shots with the majority of routes. Warsaw will probably always work with a combination of city break tourism and emigrants visiting family etc. Malta works from virtually any UK airport. I guess where they've taken a risk you may say it's running Porto over winter, and to some degree Beauvais which seems to have steady loads.
There certainly is some truth in the argument regarding the Northern Ireland market, it's not like say Stansted where Ryanair could fly to literally any random airfield in Europe and create a demand, sunshine and UK domestic works best for operators, it would be nice to see more capital cities across Europe on the board, not having the likes of Brussels, Copenhagen, Madrid etc seems a loss to me.

These are the usual rinse and repeat routes from BFS. I’d like to see some big cities on there that people would definitely travel to.

Berlin, Copenhagen, Lisbon, Madrid. I think these routes would get some good numbers from BFS

Totally agree! It’s not like we are expecting all sorts of routes like there would be from Stansted.

Nice city destinations like you’ve mentioned would surely get some traction from BFS. It just seems like there are multiple airlines doing the exact same routes from BFS.

I suppose cost has to be factored in for Ryanair but if the likes of Berlin, Lisbon, Madrid, Copenhagen were in there they’d not be fighting against other airlines for those cities.

If the demand was there Ryanair would do them. Pretty sure EZY did Berlin before and it was dropped. They go where the money is.

I see Freebird has added Bfs - Ayt to their online site, but no dates showing. This has been added very recently, so wonder what is happening here, if anything?

The UK Government has announced its response to Lord Hendy of Richmond Hill’s independent Union Connectivity Review.

Many of the recommendations relate to issues where the responsibility for transport is devolved, particularly in Northern Ireland - although I know that Stormont isn't currently sitting at the moment.


As part of this, Translink are to conduct a £700k study on the feasibility of re-opening the Antrim-Lisburn railway line, which could see the creation of an additional stop to help serve BFS.
