It looks like T3 have all but given up on MAN as well - restart date after the summer break now pushed back from September 12 to October 3. With Flybe coming along in March (if they do what they've said) then you wonder if Eastern will re-start it or not.

Great news! Was hoping they would do this route. Much better than Belfast for the EI codeshare.

Generally new routes aren't announced at the same time as the schedule release, you'll have to wait till towards the end of the year for anything new. There are still new EZY routes for winter to be announced yet! ( Unfortunately not from SOU as far as I'm aware.)

There's no chance of Easy announcing any Sun route for 2023,it might have been possible in the past: pre -recession.In addition the proposed runway extension ( when it finally happens) will not be complete for 2023 season.

To be fair, you have been wrong on every other airport related matter so I guess there is a chance you could also be on this one, lol!

Very good. Wouldnít be surprised if easy/Jet2/TUI rocked up in some capacity over the next few months as the runway is supposed to be ready for next summer

I’d be very surprised if there was any action from any of these until it is 100% definite that the extension is done and all the new distances, obstacles etc finalised.

I can only refer to your 5/8 which states:
£300m versus £15m, mmm let me think. There will be no holding off a start and as I have mentioned previous, materials are on order and work shall commence once delivered. This small project (in comparison) is NOT dependant on any possible future recession/major interest rate rises et al!
Well no notifications from this date,can you give all of us an update on start as obviously you have privy Knowledge of the project.

Plan is for it to be completed by end of April 2023. Remains to be seen if they can achieve that.

Speculative declared distances were listed in the Planning Application. Hopefully AGS have already spoken to SARG to seek their agreement in principal to them.

The obstacle environment for both runways is already in the public domain, via current published ICAO Type A Charts.

That only leaves actual construction and a subsequent "as built" check survey by AGS's aviation surveyor to secure SARG approval and formal "notification" via NOTAM and AIP change. Once the NOTAM goes out its legal, or should I say "100% definite"?

If I were an aircraft operator I would at this stage be planning what I could do with the extended runway, and even penciling in some destinations for next year.

I'm led to believe that you won't see this until a year from now and so likelihood of it being operable for Summer 2023 is zero.

Did you not read my post above re the current plans?

First visit today of a E195 E2 of KLM and sure the airport will see many more of these next generation jets in the not too distant future!

Yes saw that. I wonder if it can operate without restrictions unlike the previous 195s Flybe used. I know itís recently been in and out of LCY so it must have better performance.

Was in town when it departed and I must say it is incredibly quiet. Night and day between it and the previous generation. Makes a mockery of the idiots thinking bigger planes means more noise. Quite the opposite.

Re the KLM SOU-AMS service I had seen not long ago, that the route was to go back to twice daily.

But I have just tried to book SOU- NBO -SOU for next March and sadly the only connection from SOU to AMS is the late afternoon departure, which is no good because NBO is a morning Day flight from AMS, and then a Night flight back to AMS,
thus the normally well timed Schiphol connections are useless

Would anyone know please, if the 2 a day service will come back, and when - Thanks (or it has to be LCY or LHR or possibly BRS)

which dates are you looking at. I have just randomly picked a couple of dates in February and in March and all dates had 2 flights per day. I am flying Sou -sxm -Sou over Christmas and had the choice of 2 flights per day. That might change but at present I am out in the late flight and back on the morning flight.

Thank you, yes I do now see there are -
Indeed 2 daily KLM flights - 0920 and 1720
but it seems up to only until 25 MAR then goes back to one per day at 1720

Sadly on my outbound 21 MAR the 0920 arrives AMS at 1125 and NBO departs 1150 ouch!

On the way back on 29 MAR we land AMS at 0715, but there is only the late afternoon back to SOU at 1640

So it will be most likely be LCY or LHR with KLM (or AF LHR via CDG only)

I am using up my zillions of Virgin Flying Club points to take my sister on a Kenya 'Out of Africa' Safari with Business Class flights (VS is a spend points partner with KL/AF)
Or, for the outbound I have enough Avios for BA non stop LHR-NBO flight in WT+ which is fine for an 8 hours Day flight, and do Business Class for the night flight home.
