Summer 2023 significant slot requests:-



Of course Blue Air flights won't happen now, and with Eastern announcing Newquay to East Midlands, these slots might not be taken up now.

Hoping and praying that BER starts
MXP will do well and be nice to see another EZY route after they have now cancelled AGP
PLAY would be a great add given their onward US connections

Qatar well at least they're showing interest, I'm still very 50/50 as to whether they return
NQY I doubt will materialize now, this of course is the problem of slot requests, it's a list of "we're thinking about it" as opposed to "yes we're definitely doing it"

I read on Twitter that Emirates have a slot application for the A380 from March. Not sure if that is true. Flying with them to Melbourne in April so it would be nice to have it on both legs

Nothing confirmed as yet but reportedly x12 weekly A380 and x2 weekly 77W planned - obviously subject to change.

Most likely twice daily A380's for most of the summer, based on the summer slot report, looks like one A380 from the end of March, going double daily A380's from around 27th May, but as usual subject to change, depends on aircraft availability, and crewing availability, currently only 6 out of 15 High Density (615 seats) A380s are in service with Emirates, with a 7th aircraft expected back in service very shortly.

Assured win TUI Contract at BHX

Great news for us here at Assured. Just had it confirmed from Craig Cooper our station manager that we have won the TUI contract at BHX. Going to be difficult, but we have teh right team in place to make it a success. Plenty of positions up for grabs also.

Really good contract win and not just for Assured. I know BHX has Jet2 handling but they don't do third-party handing and great that Assured have progressed beyond just Flybe.

In other TUI news all very strange summer 2023 schedule with virtually all the cuts such as Almeria restored, including the second Funchal and a third Alicante and 6th Corfu added with Dalaman back to 8 and Antalya to 7 although still 3 away based more than last year. The only oddity now is Melbourne was 3 per week increased to 4, reduced back to 3 and now 2 in July (was 2 before) and one in August (assume to Bristol). 11 based which should keep Assured busy

Anyone know whats happening with these? I was bumped off a BRS flight with TUI to MLB when that was cancelled to a BHX one. But now all the BHX Thursday flights seem to have disappeared from their website for August 2023? TUI still say they are going.....but the BRS experience suggests they are not. I'd like to get an alternative sorted if it is cancelled as prices are soaring....

Yep Nightmare - Timetable shows no Melbourne flights ex BHX until final Thursday in August but in the holiday section it is bookable on 3rd August . Bristol bookable Wednesday 3rd August

I assume IT again with the one not matching the other.

I would say it makes no sense removing an aircraft for a day a week in August seems to make little sense but there will be reasons behind this and I suspect it is the IT. I didn't go right through to the payment page but direct flights BHX-MLB offered Thu 3/8/23 and BRS 2/8/23

Brilliant news, a very welcome addition. Fingers crossed their other slot applications become reality along with BER (EW), DOH (QR) and KEF (PLAY)

When they change or cancel a flight they tend to take certain alternative flights off sale for a few days, until all affected customers have been able to rebook. Once thatís happened, the flights come back on sale.

Three per week from 10 September when Sunday starts with an A320

Monday A320, Thursday A319 until September then it changes to an A320.

The Monday A320 shows the last 6 seats righthand side missing making it180 seats - leased aircraft?

easyjet - That could be it and I suppose if things change easy to reinstate 186 seat-plan at a later date

Turkish

Now 11 A330 flights over Christmas New Year in place of the A321 with Thursday 15th December showing that both flights on the A330 which might be a first. Five already showing for February half term as well including both on Saturday 25th February. No doubt affected by the PIA code-share due to the lack of direct flights planned between BHX.& ISB.

IndiGo has announced 32 connecting flights between India and Europe as it aims to strengthen international connectivity. These new connecting flights will fly to Milan, Manchester, Birmingham, Rome and Venice starting December 7.

These flights will be operated through codeshare partnership with Turkish Airlines. These flights, the airline said, will offer more options and add connectivity between India and the destinations, especially during the upcoming holiday season, when demand for international travel will be high.

Vinay Malhotra, Head of Global Sales at IndiGo said, “We are extremely pleased to add more capacity between India and Europe during this holiday season, given the high demand for international travel. These flights will cater to travellers exploring Italy and UK, with one stop connections to Milan, Manchester, Birmingham, Rome, and Venice via Istanbul. These new routes will not only strengthen international connectivity but also enhance affordability for travel to Europe.”

The airline said in a statement that these destinations are major tourist attractions and see an inflow of visitors throughout the year.

TUI BHX - SIN

TUI are reportedly starting BHX - SIN flights weekly from December 23 - April 24. I should imagine this is cruise related? Before Covid they operated weekly winter season cruise flights from BHX to Langkawi.

OUt of pure interest, what would be the routing for this nearly 7000 mile trip? Overnight stop somewhere en route? Crew change how / where?
