If FlyBe were still around with their overnight based aircraft then it would be a benefit for the first wave morning departures but sadly this is no longer the case. Let's hope another operator can eventually fill this gap.

The flip side is when the airport went below limits in the early evening and the based aircraft ended up in EXT/BOH/BRS/BHX leaving an empty apron next morning. Recovering something near to a normal operation would the take the rest of the next day or even in to the following day.

But not a large runway at SOU that would allow TK to operate a scheduled service to Istanbul

RW20

A technicality, for a CAT C aircraft (which most SOU arrivals are) with the combination of approach lighting and MDH available, under EU OPS criteria the approach minima is 800 metres, so the approach ban comes in less than RVR 800.

Channel Isles S22

Looks like Aurigny/Blue Islands have now put Guernsey on sale with the morning flight operated by Aurigny and all others by Blue Islands.

Jersey has had a frequency boost by Blue Islands and there are a couple more flights to Guernsey compared to this year too.

Alderney - 14 weekly Aurigny D28 (2x every day)
Guernsey - 23 weekly Aurigny (7x) and Blue Islands (16x) AT7 (4x Mon/Fri and 3x on all other days)
Jersey - 26 weekly Blue Islands AT7 (4x Mon-Fri, 3x Sat/Sun)

Looks like from today that the Eastern MAN service is being operated by a J41 that comes from (and returns to) LBA. Guess this is to free up an ATR for the LGW-NQY route which starts next week?

And to think MAN was once the airports busiest route!

Domestic pax from the airport are likely to decrease rather then increase,the airport desperately needs to have other routes,but this goes with the runway extension ( is this going to happen?) . As with a lot of regional airports - difficult times ahead!

Must be, presumably the remaining ATR does BHD/DUB/BHD. I assume they are the stronger routes for Eastern. Striking that they can't even manage a day return to MAN. Wonder if they have a plan for the summer - can they afford another ATR for SOU or will they use the E190 I wonder?

Loganair seem to be doing pretty much matching Flybe's former frequency to EDI/GLA, even if they are using smaller aircraft (but charging more!).
