It would appear that Blue Islands have now dropped their plans to serve Dublin and Manchester from Southampton. Source: SeanM1997 on a certain social media site...

Maybe Eastern will be as to increase their frequencies on these routes as the year goes on, but I'm not particularly sure if they have the aircraft to do so unless the E190 starts getting used for more scheduled services, as one of the ATR has gone to Newquay for the Gatwick PSO.

I, genuinely, thought those routes would certainly be an instant win for someone like Blue Islands out of Southampton. Have pre-bookings been that bad or is it something else?

Donít believe itís something SOU specific as they have also removed EXE - MAN recently, more likely a change to future business strategy!

Updates...

Some at odds news from Eastern over the last few days.

- Leeds Bradford to be dropped from 6th March
- Nantes and Rennes have been cancelled
- They are recruiting ATR72 crew for their Southampton base...

Elsewhere there has been mention that Southampton to Manchester may be one of Flybe v2's first routes, with the suggestion that it could infer that Southampton will be a base for them. Also, TUI are no longer using Volotea for Palma flights this summer and instead and selling packages using BA's flights, as they are to some other med destinations as well.

From looking at the Flybe rumours, i would make more sense BHD - MAN - SOU reverse than a base in SOU. All the social feeds you see is crew training for BHD and BHX only. I cant see them opening a base in SOU anytime soon. Eastern must have realised the market has changed and theres little interest in the French routes. They must have fairly good intel within the French domestic market from their previous ops there.

If they fly from BHD to the Northwest, I think Flybe will go to Liverpool, as there is no competition from BHD to LPL, there would be to MAN. Flybe have been training in and out of LPL frequently .

Suggestions on another thread that SOU will most likely see a return of BE on MAN/BHD/CDG initially. Clearly a threat to the continuation of Eastern at the airport as they never hang around for long on competitive routes!

Flybe Mk2

Flybe website reporting that they will launch the following routes from Southampton, all from late July:

Avignon - 1x weekly
Belfast City - 7x weekly increasing to 11x weekly from mid Sept
Toulon - 1x weekly

Timings not up yet as routes aren't on sale. Nothing too surprising, probably a lot more sensible looking than some of the other routes announced! No Southampton to Manchester as previously rumoured, that that is probably tricky logistically if their only bases are currently planned for Belfast City and Brum.

Update: flights now on sale, Belfast has a mid/late morning and evening flight Mon and Weds-Fri, one flight on Tues/Sat/Sun.

Avignon is served on Sat, and Toulon on Sun by an aircraft that appears to overnight stay at Southampton. Not sure how it gets in/out and the Belfast flight timings don't appear to tie up with it.

S22 increases

With the summer season now underway there are a few frequency increases taking effect over the next few weeks and months. Good to see the airport slowly but surely growing back towards where it was pre pandemic.

BA Cityflyer

30/04 - New route to Florence 1 weekly
14/05 - New route to Dublin 1 weekly
14/05 - New route to Limoges 1 weekly
14/05 - New route to Nice 1 weekly

Blue Islands

27/03 - Jersey increases from 21 to 22 weekly

Eastern - appear to need two ATR's from mid April to operate their planned schedule, no idea where the second will come from with the Newquay PSO needing one of the existing two, or if it will become a J41...

16/04 - Belfast City increases from 6 to 7 weekly (Sat flight added)
17/04 - Dublin increases from 4 to 7 weekly
22/05 - Belfast City increases to 13 weekly
23/05 - Manchester increases from 6 to 11 weekly

Flybe - Returning later in the year, the timings of the French leisure flights suggest an SOU based aircraft, I do wonder if we are awaiting an additional announcement from them, especially with the previous rumours of SOU-MAN being one of their early routes...

23/07 - New route to Avignon 1 weekly
24/07 - New route to Toulon 1 weekly
28/07 - New route to Belfast City 7 weekly
15/09 - Belfast City increases to 11 weekly

KLM -

27/03 - Amsterdam increases from 4 to 7 weekly
20/06 - Amsterdam increases to 14 weekly

Loganair -

27/03 - Newcastle increases from 12 to 13 weekly
01/04 - Edinburgh increases from 19 to 23 weekly
01/04 - Glasgow increases from 19 to 22 weekly
01/04 - New route to Aberdeen via Teesside 6 weekly (no Sat)
20/04 - Glasgow increases to 23 weekly

It will be interesting to see how much of this does operate, we've seen over the last couple of years Blue Islands ambitions to start a base at the airport but never materialising. No doubt due to lack of bookings and the last minute decision to pull the flights. We may see a similar thing with Flybe where some of the flights never actually operate.

BE will blow Eastern out the water with BHD route if current pricing is anything to go by!

Don't the French leisure flights suggest a short season of not very intensive weekend detachements?

KLM -

27/03 - Amsterdam increases from 4 to 7 weekly
20/06 - Amsterdam increases to 14 weekly

seems the return to 14 weekly is just for a couple of weeks. Only single flight each day available from July through to end of October on the KLM website

See in the Airport Operator's latest marketing email "Lets Fly" that "We are delighted to welcome the new Flybe to Southampton Airport".

Presumably they were successful in retreiving all outstanding debts from the previous Flybe by detaining aircraft via liens placed upon them when Flybe Mk1 went down the pan. Were Swissport quite so fortunate?
