I noticed that as well, how many times will the budget get stretched? I'd say the more times they raise the limit, the more people might loose interest in backing them.

Its quite common for these crowdfunding schemes to extend the donation target once they hit one. In anything like this you can never have too much money so they usually extend it with a small explanation of what the next stage would support.

It's clear that there will be a substantial delay in the runway extension,and with many covid mutations to come,the question is will this ever happen?
The airport can and will survive ,but the hope of progressing to the next level must be very dubious at least!.

Airport fees increasing, air traffic navigation charges likely to rise and the price of oil heading slowly to $150 a barrel, does not bode well for fares. This may well impact discretionary travel.

Drove by airport recently and noticed Easternís E190 nose in on stand 10. Didnít think these stands capable of accommodating this size of aircraft, bodes well for BA ops!

Some years ago a FlyBe E195 was parked nose out on stand 10 or 11 and the APU exhaust set fire to the stand number sign. The signs were lowered after that.

BA at SOU are taking their time to adapt to the changing rules. Also not sure why the Spain routes are not being run this year. They would probably be the most popular given BEs long-standing offering. Flights to Spain being done from most the other airports and have been for a while, so cannot point to the rules for that country.

BA318

looks like they have reached a level of funding to fully engage a company to sustain a judicial review to stop the expansion
They certainly mean business,and the expansion doesn't look like starting for some time,if not ever?

More chopping and changing and cutting as per, but here is an up to date summary. Stars by the stuff that looks like it could just be a placeholder. Govt are proudly placing more nails in the industry coffin by not allowing double vaxxed to return from France without isolation (what is the ing point of everyone getting vaccinated if this sort of rubbish rubbish is still a thing?)

Southampton to Newquay has also appeared in Eastern's booking engine but is not presently bookable. Probably a fair market for that in the summer - much better than the awful 4-5 hour drive!

As of today Southampton has the following operating:

Aurigny

Alderney - 14 weekly D28
Guernsey - 14 weekly AT7 - Blue Islands aircraft used for some flights

BA Cityflyer

Edinburgh - 1 weekly E90
Ibiza - 2 weekly E90
Palma - 2 weekly E90


Blue Islands

Jersey - 14 weekly AT7

Eastern Airways

Belfast City - 6 weekly AT7
Gibraltar - 2 weekly E90/E70/ER3...
Leeds Bradford - 4 weekly J41

Manchester - 4 weekly AT7

KLM Cityhopper

Amsterdam - 4 weekly E75

Loganair

Edinburgh - 14 weekly ER4
Glasgow - 14 weekly ER4
Newcastle - 14 weekly ER3/ER4


19/07

Eastern start Dublin - 4 weekly AT7

26/07

Loganair increase Edinburgh to 19 weekly
Loganair increase Glasgow to 20 weekly

01/08

* Blue Islands resume Guernsey - 14 weekly *

02/08

Blue Islands increase Jersey to 20 weekly

07/08

BA Cityflyer resume Faro
BA Cityflyer start Alicante, * Bergerac *, Berlin, Florence,* Limoges *, Malaga, Mykonos,* Nice *


31/08

Blue Islands start Dublin - 7 weekly AT7
Blue Islands start Manchester - 19 weekly AT7

01/09

Loganair increase Edinburgh to 24 weekly

Loganair increase Glasgow to 25 weekly

03/09

Blue Islands increase Jersey to 23 weekly

06/09

Eastern increase Belfast City to 11 weekly
Eastern increase Leeds Bradford to 10 weekly
Eastern increase Manchester to 11 weekly
Eastern start Nantes - 3 weekly AT7

Eastern start Rennes - 3 weekly AT7
Loganair increase Newcastle to 18 weekly

Thanks for keeping up these posts, very useful. It looks like KLM are often using the E90 on the route which hopefully is a good sign.

Southampton to Newquay has also appeared in Eastern's booking engine
Noticed recently (I think sometime last week) that a SOU-LBA flight was operated by a J41 that came from NQY.

No surprise given the ridiculous quarantine rules applied to France. Assume Bergerac remains as many passengers using this service will be 2nd home owners in the Dordogne and 10 day quarantine will not be an issue!
